Holy Crap!!!! This was totally a waste of time. There are fans that drove for many miles to see this crap. First off, I am by no means a football coach, never pretended to be, never even played organized football. I love the game and love to watch the Gators play. But I loved nothing about last night's debacle. SC had one of the WORST passing defenses in the league and is one of the BEST aginst the run. SO, any moron can figure out what to do here right????? WRONG!!!!! Our moronic offensive coordinator couldn't. Di I say they were among the WORST at defending the pass? I believe I did. SO naturally we came out RUNNING the ball!????? For real??? The guy that hosts the Final Point after the game says, "They blitzed us all night, they blitzed us when they got off of the bus." Hey Addazio, put a back in the backfield to pick up the blitz you moron!! All there was to the play calling last night was the dive play and short screen passes or swing passes. NOTHING down field. Some will say, John didn't have time to throw. Put a back or two in the backfield to pick up the blitz you moron!! Jordan Reed comes in and clicks off a 14 yard run so what do they do, bring Brantley back in. Of course you do so they can eat him up with the blitz. Look, I like John just as good as anyone else but I feel the coaching staff has messed him up so badly that he can't even throw a ball now, not accurately. And, bless his heart, he can't run. But they continue to trot him out there. Addazio simply cannot call plays or adjust to what the other team throws at him. He just sticks to what they practiced and if it works fine but if not, ehhhh, the players need to execute. How about the coaches executing once in a while. This was the biggest game of the year, chance to go to the SEC Championship but noooooooo, we played like we were from the graduated Pee Wee league. Addazio says this is the best o-line he's ever coached. REALLY??? Well either he's not coached much in the past or he hasn't coached very good players in the past. Our offensive line leaks like a screen door on a submarine and he says they are good? They couldn't block my 94 year old mama.
I hope that the pressure is so strong on Urban that he cannot help but fire Addazio. The pressure needs to be put on him. Addazio has ruined the whole deal. Even my wife can see how horrible the play calling is. i am hoping that Urban saw a lot of blue clad fans walking out early last night, includingme. But as I was walking to the bus I heard a lot of people saying the same thing....Addazio is an idiot. Perhaps those same people will be mad enough to yell it loud enough for President Machen and Foley to hear it....WHAT THE HECK WAS THAT????
Oh, one more thing....the scheme of Mr. Austins defense wasn't much better. The number one priority was to STOP that kid from running. How many times did anyone see "eight in the box" to crowd the line and stop the kid from running???? Not very many times if any. WHAT the heck was THAT????
