    Offense is a joke and will be the rest of this year...if you don't have expecattions, then you won't be let down.

    The offense was fine (not great) until we started trying to bleed the clock in our first possession of the second half.

    All our skill players play better up tempo.

    The commentators referred to it as our ďred offenseĒ. Whatís sad about that is that it indicates that we talk about this and that itís intentional. We have all observed how terribly we play with a lead. It feels somehow worse to know weíve discussed this intentional momentum killing with those outside the program.

    Re: As we celebrate another GLORIOUS Tech victory...

    Did I hear correctly that we only attempted 6 passes in the 2nd half????

    Also, I thought the 2 fourth down plays were called incorrectly. We should have taken the points on the 1st drive of 2nd half and been up 23-0 (virtually 4 scores). In the 4th quarter, when we tried to draw them offsides, we should have actually gone for it.

    We need to be up 30 before starting bleeding clock strategy. I donít mind it, theoretically it is the correct call with yesterdayís brutal weather. Try to end the game quick. In practice, our offense needed to start quick, attack, and score twice more. Because Grambling wasnít going to give up just because we were going to bleed clock. The second half was very poor game management.

    This team is S-L-O-W!! The defense especially. I am not impressed with any facets of our game.

    Did you see how much better we played with 4 defensive lineman? Our prevent, drop 8 defense only prevents us from being effective.

    I agree wholeheartedly. I think Skip is a slightly above average coach, Sunday thru Friday, but he has the worst feel for the game I have ever seen. If his initial plans derail, he is clueless to stop the bleeding.

    Re: As we celebrate another GLORIOUS Tech victory...

    We have arguably the best pass rusher in the conference in Willie Baker. I watched every play of the game, his name was never mentioned until the last play where we sacked the QB. The 3-4 defense is a JOKE!!! After 2 games, it sucks. For the love of the game, everyone but skippy sees that our offense is garbage. Of course, everyone but Skippy saw that Boston Scott was better than Craft. We are a joke...we barely beat Grambling....we are a joke, the AD is a joke

    Re: As we celebrate another GLORIOUS Tech victory...

    Techís football troubles arenít complicated. In no particular order...

    #1 JíMar isnít a football savvy QB. He canít read whatís likely to happen with the defense so Holtz has him running the simplest offense imaginable. Itís basically one read then throw it away. His read option runs are too slow.

    #2 JíMar/Holtz have agreed that JíMar plays it safe, no risk for reward if thereís a risk of turnover. No risk of injury either.

    #3 Holtz coaches and motivates his team down. He never sets out to Ďbeatí an opponent. Itís more about just winning the game. A bare win is more sportsman like than a butt kicking.

    #4 Holtz doesnít dare let his coaches coach their way. He doesnít trust anyone to risk anything. He much prefers hoping the other team will make enough mistakes to lose.

    #5 Holtz wonít hire a coach to rival his authority or style. He wants down trending coaches that he can control very easily.

    #6 Holtz is not a good judge of game day talent and performances. When he evaluates his players incorrectly, he wonít make a change.

    #7 Holtz is atrocious at game management and perceiving momentum moments in the game. He pretty much always gets it wrong.

    #8 Holtz is an uninspired coach! Whether itís the opposition coach or their players or the refs, Holtz doesnít get excited about anything including being cheated. This lack of emotion dampens his playersí performance because they arenít inspired to over achieve.

    Even if I and others don't completely agree with every one of your points, it's safe to say there is some truth to each and every point you made! There are team members, staff members, and others within our university reading this and nodding their heads in agreement with much of what you posted!

    That said, I don't completely agree with #5. Diaz was his own coach while he was here. I suspect Diaco will be, as well.

    Your most accurate point is #7. We have blown 4th quarter leads in the Holtz era in games against Kansas State, Arkansas, and South Carolina when we've gone into a shell. And it hasn't only been about not throwing the football. It's more like an attitude and history in those situations. Our team and staff knows we're going to play it safe, and our opponents know we're going to play it safe. In those games both sides have acted accordingly. You can go back and watch the 4th quarter of each of those games. Look at the body language of the players. It's stunning.
