29.Oct.2011 What was the Game Plan?
"I cant believe they didn't stuff the box. They used the same defensive sets they've used all year" –Kyle Wittingham
Given that Utah's coach basically laughed at OSU's staff, I think it's fair that mere mortal fans ask some questions. Such as…what was the offensive game plan tonight? It looked like, "Let's try a pass. Hm. Let's try a run. Screw it, let's flip a coin."
I mean, I didn't see the running game established, and I didn't see the passing game established to open up the run. So, what was the plan? I didn't see the edge tested. Didn't see misdirection. Didn't see an effort to get players in space. Didn't see Utah tested vertically but once (the dropped TD). So what was the strategy?
And what was the plan on defense? It should have been to stop the run since Utah is starting a DII quarterback, but I didn't see eight men in the box. So, what was the plan? Will the Oregon media ask these questions?
Finally, how are these coaches jobs' safe? Answer: a kidney, nepotism, and a lifetime contract.
