Can you post screenshots? I just looked and can’t find any conversation, granted I do not have a Twitter account so I’m not sure mentions/replies are accessible.
I agree that not all turnovers are luck, but a significant number are. And the Illini D is bad when they don't get them. Turnovers can be part of the identity but when you don't get them (like yesterday) that shouldn't mean that you automatically lose. You have to be able to line up and physically stop them.I get really tired of the idea our defense only survived because they lucked into turnovers, or talking about how bad they’ll be if they all the sudden stop turning people over.
The problem with this analogy is that stealing bases or basketballs does not have nearly the same effect on a game that turnovers in football do.Stealing bases in baseball is good, but the team that steals the most bases isn't always the most successful team. Stealing the ball in basketball is good but, again, it doesn't necessarily lead to a win.
The point is that many fans would like to see a better all-around defensive scheme and performance. Interceptions and fumble-recoveries can be an enjoyable component of that, but they should not be a stand-alone goal. If we want to win more games, the team needs to implement and execute a more dependable overall defense.
I struggle with this since he has brought in some good talent. But I have no idea what he brings to the table as far as a coach. We need way more talent on this roster so maybe he isn't as good as we need, just better than the others on the staffIf there was a single coach I could see leaving this off season it would be AHS. And then prolly Byrd.
Right? That's how I read it too.What the heck? Is this dope challenging one of his wide receivers to a fight?
Ya we may not have all the information about what is going on. But it isn't the best look either wayRight? That's how I read it too.
Will someone explain how Washington's tweet is bad? I read his as "gotta work harder". More like he didn't like the feel of losing a bowl game, hes gonna work harder to make sure it doesn't happen again.
That's how I read it as well. I'm not sure what AHS was referring to.
Casey's original tweet was taken down, but I am pretty sure I saw it earlier in my thread. I thought it was just a comment about going to work to not having that feeling of a bowl loss again
I am not sure what it going on, but I dont think it is a good look for AHS...
I basically meant that coaching has a lot to do with it. For example, the 2018 squad gained a total of 3280 yards on the ground, averaging 5.9 yards per carry. All of the top runners, and almost all of the offensive line, returned for the 2019 season but we ran for only 2312 yards with an average of 3.8 yards per carry. Consequently, the thesis that "a team with many starters returning will definitely have more success" may be flawed.the way college football works is that good things happen when most of the starters are returning. So I’m not sure what you mean.
The loss of Allegretti was a huge part of the reason why the running game regressed. Also not having a true dual threat QB. Peters, while being able to scramble when needed, is no AJ Bush in that respect.I basically meant that coaching has a lot to do with it.

I won't pretend to know exactly why our running game was less effective this season, but those are the facts (despite all of the returning players). It's somewhat puzzling since our passing game was so much better this year. I would think that an enhanced air attack (meaning a less predicable offense) would have helped our running. I can see how the total running yardage might decrease, but why should the average yardage per run decrease?
for me as well.Calvin Avery is my guy for this IF award
In the second half, there’s a couple specific balls that got thrown (And caught) against clear Cover 4/Quarters.Re-watching the first half now. Man i missed a lot. Guess I can't do two things at once. Twangers is right, Cover 3, Man Free (pressure), and I don't know how much Quarters we played through the first half. Our Corners were playing very aggressive at LOS. Seems more Cover 2 than Quarters.
