Kelly is in a tough strategic spot. He knows he can win with Book against every team on his schedule, but must realize from the Clemson game and the Georgia game that Book and his offense becomes...

If Im USC I hope I can throw quick release passes and stay out of 3rd and long. If not, Slovis is going to be punched in the mouth like hes never experienced in his short Qb life. Hes in for a...

I watched football all day yesterday for the first time in a long, long time. The thing that stuck out to me is how similar, with a few exceptions, all the offenses are. Most are spread offenses...

Tremble is an exceptionally good blocker in space, blocking linebackers, safeties and trapping DE's. He's the best of any TE in space I've seen in the Kelly era, which makes him very versatile as...

I don't think it's a bad idea and would suit Book better. Kmet and Tremble are both dangerous in their own way as receivers and blocked well when they both were in together during the 2nd half and we...

A lot of these plays where there is a free rusher are due to either an empty backfield, or where the running back releases to go out on a route. Book knows there's going to be a free rusher, but he...

Book is only effective when he has maximum protection. Any time, due to formation, and/or blitzes, he is forced to deliver the football to an open receiver knowing he might get hit, he opts to bail...

I remember one, where Eichenberg didn't block the man on him and instead blocked an inside blitzer. However, Book calls the protections and has to deal with the resulting pass rush. So, I'm not sure...

The administration made a big mistake pushing out the south end zone customers, who were long time local season ticket holders. They, along with when the student body was all (or mostly) male, made...

The only guy out of that group with an NFL arm was Kizer. Book doesn't have an NFL arm either. That in a nutshell is the problem. Book is more serviceable than Zaire and Wimbush because he's more...

One of the ways to help the running game against defenses that load the box and use single coverage on the outside, is to punish them with deep, vertical sideline throws. Book doesn't have the arm....

I didn't suggest switching QB's. I said Jurkovec should get a lot of playing time in what should be a blowout.

You were pretty spot on, right down to that kickoff play to start the second half. Without the D's dominance and ability to turn the ball over and advance the ball, we would have lost this game.

Book has a very low ceiling. His skills are average. It's time to see Phil and there is no reason why he doesn't get a lot of playing time next week. We should crush Bowling Green. No amount of more...

I'm no coach, and I'm sure they have a two minute drill, but on the last play Book should of stepped up into the pocket instead of running away from the pocket, which he does way too much. If I...
