Terrible KSU Coaching Decisions Thread
« on: November 05, 2016, 06:15:37 PM »
Vs. ISU:
Ball on our own 1/2 yard-line. Drop back ~6 yards into the end zone to hand off to Charles Jones, who is promptly tackled. Safety.




Vs. OSU:
--We have the ball in the 3rd quarter in their own red zone, down on about their 6. It's 2nd and 1. Instead of just powering straight ahead with #FamilyFullback or Ertz, we again drop about 5 yards back to hand it off. Tackled in the backfield. [Something inconsequential happens on 3rd down I think.] Then we decide on 4th and 4 or so that it's a good time to gamble and fake the field goal. Slow, plodding, basic fake comes nowhere near getting a first down.

--Late with like 7 or 8 minutes left in the game, up 9 points, and we're past midfield in their territory. We have 4th and 1. Instead of just powering straight ahead with #FamilyFullback or Ertz, we punt. Two plays later, they throw an 82-yard touchdown pass.



Now you list your faves.

Becoming utterly predictable in short yardage during the 4th quarter allowing OSU to sell out up the middle.  Playing not to lose gets a bit painful at times, for you know what is going to happen.

Ooh, what about last year when we were beating #2 TCU at half by 18 points, so obviously we should've just Collin Klein 2010 Texas'd the Horned Frogs and ran the ball effortlessly for the entire second half, but INSTEAD!!! we decided to have Bazooka Joe air it out for the entire 3rd and 4th quarters? Because that's what they won't expect us to do! Because we're bad at it! They'll never expect it.

Of all the crap that pisses me off about today--and there is a lot-allowing a receiver to get ten yards behind our rough ridin' soft defense when we are up nine and there is about nine minutes left.....that takes the cake for me.  It was the only way we could lose, and we did it.  And it would be one thing if we were blitzing like hell---but no we weren't.

Too much to list. Nearly every defensive and offensive decision.

I agree that the pair of short yardage decisions were ultimately the difference for our offense. That 2nd and 1 with a huge loss was a body shot and the 3rd and 1 leading to the punt was the death blow.

Defensively its not as easy to tell, but clearly we had some huge breakdowns to give up 10 yards a play over the course of an entire game. That's just getting destroyed. You have to play a little defense to win and even with the offensive miscues, I still put this loss more on the inability of the defense even with the pair of INTs.

I should say I like a lot about ertz. makes good decisions. fast. stuff like that. just the noodliest noodle arm. maybe it's broke, I don't know. like bazooka at least overthrew those wide open long routes. underthrowing them ever single time is infuriating.

I have no idea how he hasn't had more interceptions with that noodle of an arm. With so many laughably bad throws you'd think more would end up with the other team.

I am sick of the "we've got to figure out how to ride the hot hand" crap about the RBs because as soon as we find one, we pull them or go back to QB run. The 4th and 1 punt in the 4th quarter was set up by a Barnes run for 8 or 9 and then Ertz on 2nd and 3rd for nothing.

That miss on the throw to Pringle was rough. Pringle ran a great route and was 5 yards by his man and he still should have caught it, but the ball was way under thrown.

The PringleCat
Nothing else in our offense was working at that point in the game. Why not take a chance in that situation? PringleCat seemed like a worthwhile gamble, IMHO.

here's the thing about our RBs, they're all kinda good. I don't remember ever having so many kinda good options. we usually have like one and some trash. we just don't stick with them. we run designed ertz option run thing, or some shitty pass play and blow ourselves up. and then when we need 3 yards we go out of the gun in a slow developing run and get stopped. just run our kinda good RBs behind our somehow kinda good OL (great job here coaching staff btw) and get yards. But we get ertz either underthrowing some crap or slowly developing some QB thing or doing the delayed handoff 4 yards deep and I lose my crap.
