I too appreciate your work Zach and this was a very good job but to answer your question, i believe Sullivan puts in that type of work every week. Do the dual threat guys help an offense go? Truth is, I would love to see one of you statisticians break down the larger picture of why Gus had super successful offenses at Ark, Tulsa, and Springdale with pocket passers, but has not been able to do it consistently at AU.
Marcus Monk had almost 1k receiving yards while being thrown to by two different pocket passers. If you watch some of his offenses at Tulsa they look nothing like what he puts on the field at AU. Paul Smith at Tulsa threw for 5, yards and ran for Even Ryan Alpin at Ark St. If there should be a strength to being a former high school coach it should be adaptability, because those guys have a constant rotation of different talents each year. About Aplin, I would have to disagree a bit.
Aplin had rushed for something like yards a year before malzahn came to jonesboro. While he did progress as a passer, the offense regressed a bit some revisionist history is possible. Just looking at quarterbacks is too simplistic. Cam Newton was a very good passer in addition to being a prolific runner. But that whole team was filled with superstars on both offense and defense.
And again, he had a lot of exceptional players around him. Nick Marshall was a good runner. But he was also a pretty good passer. Anybody watch Georgia Tech churn it up and down the field last night against Virginia Tech? It would appear that Paul Johnson recruits players who fit into his system, and then they make the system go! If Gus must have a running quarterback why is the number one QB on your list a passer and not a run first guy? In this case, with what the numbers say and my interpretation of them, I would say that the job was great.
He matched personell well. But after game 8, the offense became stale. Mostly because defenses figured out how they were using mccaleb. You must be logged in to post a comment.
