There’s nothing there for Pratt to throw to when we don’t use tempo. We used tempo on the last series and moved the ball. Hope Willie’s conservative ass wakes up to that.

All year it’s been about the OL. They are just not very good. Our passing game built on medium and long crossing patterns. Pratt has no time to throw those.
Not optimistic that OL will suddenly improve in the second half of the 13th game.
This team has no business playing in NY6 bowl.

A good OC can scheme around a bad or not elite oline.

If you don' think Willies money extraction game effected the team, well it did. Willlie will be off with millions more than he needs or deserves and what about telling
all last year he loved Tulane enough to finish out his career but really meant one more year.

O-line allowed a killer sack. Killed the drive.

Yeah tempo and calling plays to get the ball out quicker. Boom or bust is not working.

Pratt has a hand/wrist injury. Could be nerve injury too as he keeps grabbing his elbow. Horton warming up. Pratt trying to throw but very gingerly.

This is a bad OC facing a good defense. Nagle has been trash all year.

Our OTs are basically OGs who are too slow for the outside. Most G5s have that issue.

Power running game will work too. Two TEs, pound them with Hughes and play-action.

Holding them to a FG is ok. Keep running the ball and play-action.

Not sure why we went back to the RPO on the last drive.

The conference is in charge and it is considered a neutral site game.

Bad PI call. Ball was already passed the receiver when Robinson hit him.
