    Why hasn't anybody questioned the wisdom of Tech running the "lateral screen pass" (behind our own line of scrimmage) against SJSU in TWO out of THREE plays late in the 4th qtr yesterday? The second screen pass was actually intercepted and returned for the decisive TD. It killed any chance Tech had of winning the game.

    The INT was only 2 plays after a Spartan CB got a fantastic jump and almost intercepted the first screen pass on the line of scrimmage (on the other side). It was the SAME dang play. They looked like carbon copies of each other. Had the Spartan CB not dropped the first pass, he could have EASILY run untouched for a TD too. Two plays later, he did it anyway because we were stupid enough to run the same TELEGRAPHED play again.

    Calling this same WORTHLESS play TWICE in one series was a MAJOR mistake. And to call it a second time after the Spartan guy almost returned it for a TD the first time should have been a signal that THEY WERE READING OUR FORMATIONS!

    This is what happened when we started throwing the ball BEHIND our own line of scrimmage.

    Which would be more than you have.

    Dan Newman made the comment that the SJSU defenders were reading Luke's eyes and jumping right into the passing lanes. Oh, but of course, Newman should stick to cleaning jocks too.

    I wish, Clyde, that Bicknell & Company could coach somewhere else and that you follow them as a fan there. Cuz, we don't want them here and we don't need idiots like you who stick their heads in the sand.

    Now that's some really deep thought. You had to dig way back into that 4th grade mind of yours for that one.

    Why don't you comment on the play series? This isn't about your lack of personality and the insecurities you are obviously dealing with....it's about the EXTREMELY poor play call that finally cost us the game.

    The SJSU folks sitting near me were absolutley agast at the play call. They couldn't believe we were stupid enough to call the same play again so soon after the Spartan CB had almost returned the first one for a TD.

    You're the one with insecurities, having to get on an internet chat board to rant and rave about college football.

    If you want Jack gone, pick up the phone and call your boy Jim. All you do is piss and moan on this board.

    As I was listening to the game I was thinking run Smith straight at them or throw down field. Please, please don't throw anything like a wide receiver screen. I knew that Tech had really dodged the bullet when the Spartan dropped the easy TD pick. So what does Tech do? Uhhhhhhhhhhh

    Not having seen the play or any of the game it is difficult to assess how good or bad the play calling was. However, I have already seen enough against Penn St. and the others.

    Poor coaching (ie play calling) probably lost this game for Tech.

    That receiver was not supposed to get the ball. There was a blitz, so there was no time to hit one of the two receivers running straight up the field. Luke made the decision to go to short receiver, who was but a decoy. It still might have worked, but Luke hesitated. This was not a coaching error.

    I sounds like it worked perfectly to me. The receiver didn't get the ball. :lol:

    I wasn't there, but I was told by someone who saw the film that his only other choice was to try to avoid the sack. Luke made a mistake, but comments about urine are not necessary, even in the pit.

    Luke, if you read this garbage, assine comments like the last post come with the territory of being a 1-A quarterback. Ignore these ignorant fools, and keep your head in the game. We need you for Boise, and especially for next year. Don't let these idiots get you down.
