OK, but what is the issue the coaches have with Banks ?

Also, the ESPN announcers appeared to have done absolutely no preparation for the game.

Would you have if you were them? This was probably a very low viewership game

A balanced offense got us the win against Memphis. We came out running and throwing the ball in the flat, threw to RB's and TE's. It softened the D up the middle and got our run game going.Fact is we don't run well when we playa decent defense or better. It's beyond moronic to think this line can just come out and say were going to run even though you've stacked the box. Ridiculous. When all we did was run for for all of the first year and much of the second everyone was losing their minds. It was boring and we lost. Balanced it last year late and almost made a Bowl. Being balanced keeps us from being predictable. We don't have the line to play old school football. We need to pass to set up the run. But hey let's just stick with boring and losing. That's really filled the stands.

I still think Banks can be dangerous to defenses if WF pounds the ground.
We want a Bowl Game in 2018!

Banks is a dangerous runner when he goes back to pass, nothings there and he takes off. Fritz talked about that after the UAB game.

I don't understand how after 3 years we still don't have a good option quarterback. Aren't they the easiest to find? I know we didn't land Lindsey Scott but there has to be others out there. This offense looks nothing like GA Southern during Fritz's tenure there. The service academies find them.

It's been said that he walked into his QB's at SHST and Ga. Southern. Howard, the QB transfer from USM, appears to have the ability to run that offense.
