Yup, the Badger formula of no penalties, great special teams, effort from unknowns, solid , solid D, consistent O line play and the ability to control the game by RTFB is missing this year. Getting plenty of yards on the ground but mostly on big plays. With this QB a 4 yard and a cloud of dust O is needed, this line seems unable to do that. Both PC and JL need to get er back on track.
And to think coming into this season some thought this might be their best offense yet. Tough to be decent when you can’t complete a goddamn pass. Then again, this all world OL at times has looked very ordinary. That’s tough to figure out. In the meantime the defense missed a few more tackles. Ugh
It shows us all why Hornibrook kept playing even when he's appeared not to be merit playing. Obviously, he's much better than Coan and it's probably obvious in practice too. Why are the Badgers unable to recruit an upper level college QB more often?
The Badgers have 4 running backs with at least 20 carries this year. All of them average over 6.5 yards/carry. The OL is filled with future NFL guys. Yes, the OL has been a little disappointing, but the top 4 RBs have about 360 carries over the 10 games and have averaged 6.5 yards on those carries. You don't do that without a good OL. And most of those carries have been into defenses with 8 or 9 guys in the box. They've lost 4 games. 1 of those was because they had three fumbles from RBs.
Yup, they have had many good to great players at every position....not this year. They are what they are at this point. And that's OK, next year is another year. PC is a good coach, JL is a good coach, reload, get healthy and 2019 will be a very good year. Oh, I hope Mertz is a Fred, not an Ethel.
