    Their Coach, Our Coach

    Their coach: Went for it on 4th down inside his own 25
    Our coach: Didn't go for it inside THEIR 10 twice

    Both in the first half...when the game was still in reach.

    I am reticent to ever criticize college athletes, so I won't. I am NOT reticent to criticize college coaches. Our lack of audacity is breath-taking. Simply breath-taking

    Their coach went for 2pt conversion early in the 1st quarter. Has Skippy ever attempted 2 in his entire career when the situation didn't absolutely call for it?

    Their coach calls running plays that aren't the stretch/zone run.

    I thought it was very interesting in the Bama game when the Tide didnít settle for field goal positioning on their last drive. The plays they called challenged the D and resulted in a TD. They didnít play for a Skippy field goal. As a result Miss St was demoralized and essentially gave up knowing they had to play for more than a field goal.

    It really does make a difference in taking the fight out of a team as weíre now feeling.

    Re: Their Coach, Our Coach

    What was with the lame "Unsportsmanlike Conduct" call that DeJuawn Oliver received after making a great reception for a 1st down on 3rd and 13? According to the White hat referee, Oliver was penalized for making a 1st Down motion with his arm after making the catch and running very hard for the 1st down. That penalty was devastating to our team at that time. It killed our drive, and took the wind out of our sails. Instead of a new 1st down and 10 around our own 45-yd line, we ended up in a 3rd and 20-something backed up deep in our own territory. We just couldn't do anything right after that.

    One hour later, I'm watching the Alabama-Miss St game, and a Miss St player made a 1st down against Bama. And just as Oliver did against FAU, the Miss St player got up off the ground and made the exact SAME 1st down motion with his right arm. But the Miss St player received no penalty. No unsportsmanlike conduct. So his team's drive stayed alive.

    We've all seen college players make the "1st Down motion" with their arm without receiving a penalty. I've seen it hundreds of times. In fact, I specifically remember when we played UAB earlier this season, the Blazers had a couple of players make that same "1st Down motion" several times during our game, without being penalized. I also remember a WKU RB making the exact same 1st down motion at least twice without consequence.

    What's the deal?

    Skip Holtz needs to put a stop to this kind of nonsense from referees. Our players shouldn't be penalized for something that other players from other teams aren't getting penalized for.

    I'm beginning to think it's less that the refs have it "out" for us (every fanbase thinks that) and just that the crew knows Holtz has no balls, and he doesn't call them on it. So stupid stuff goes unchallenged.

    When was the last time he threw a challenge flag? Much less argued.

    I have been saying this all year and have been chastised for it, Skip is a wuss when it comes to the refs. I can probably count on one hand how many times I have saw Skip get even slightly animated with the refs, most of the time when Skip goes out to talk to ref, I think he just tells them "good job".

    Refs will take the path of least resistance!

    Iíve said it before and Iíll say it again, when Holtz doesnít challenge the refs or make an issue of what they call and donít call he is betraying his players. If he wonít fight for them then why should they fight for him.

    Crazy to think we all wish Holtz would get mad enough at least every now and then that the refs would contemplate throwing him out.

    What a coach should look like every once in a while, being a man, fighting for his players.

    Very good way of putting it. Very blasť. Almost robotic in the way he seems to go through the motions, thinking that process over innovation/creativity will get the job done.
