    I didn't want to listen to his constant BS last night. How many times did he say, "we lost our eyes"?

    But what I HATE more than making up words is this idea that we "competed well". It is b.s. garbage coach speak. Competed well is a cop-out, and Holtz uses it every week. All the time. Competed well. I thought we really competed well.

    He said we had our eyes in the backfield. Which was set up perfectly by the play before.

    I listened to Viator's radio show most weeks -

    Not a lot of coach speak - he just talks and explains why he did this, or why he shouldn't of called whatever play

    Competing is part of playing well. And Tech for the most part hasn't played that well since the infamous 3rd quarter interception at South Carolina.

    Seasons usually turn on one or two games. My thought is that this Tech season turned on that one play.

    I agree that is the turning point. Coach Holtz hasn't gone for the TD since then unless we were down big.

    Those who didn't leave the FAU game early saw something amazing.

    We got into the red zone, and J'Mar threw a beautiful pass to Veal in the end zone. It was simply glorious. Zip on the ball. Threaded the needle of defenders. Right to the receiver for the Touchdown.

    I think FAU was surprised we weren't handing off and running the ball.

    It changed my opinion of J'Mar. I don't think he is a terrible QB. I think he has had his wings clipped by our HC. He can make great plays in the red zone.

    He can't make great plays when the coach keeps calling handoffs. As Frisco said, ever since that 1 interception Holtz gets freakishly conservative in the red zone. I wonder if someone compiled the statistics of how many times we run the ball vs. pass the ball once we get past the 20-yard line.

    I think we'd be sitting at 7-3 at worst if this pass had been incomplete or if Craft had stayed in to block.

    We would have defeated SC 16 or 19 to something. UAB game would have gone our way.

    Passes across the middle are easier for a QB to make. The out routes and screens scare me much more than the across the middle passes.

    We don't pay him to "compete well". We pay him to win.
