To the article:

We need to be able to run the ball.

Royal...please explain in specific terms and in 500 words or less how you think we can run the ball better in 2018?

Terrance Sullivan

Outstanding stuff 86. Love it.

roachcane77

Three newcomers will help us run the ball better...

Lingard, Davis & George.

(Sounds like a Law firm... )

Easy.

Stop running straight into the backs of the guards/tackles.

The things I noticed were pretty bad. OL consistantly whiffing in open space, blocking the wrong assignment and getting flat out bullied. Its going to have to start in the weight room with a challenge to be the most physical unit in the ACC. RT is an issue and St. Louis is just not mean enough. We have to have someone on the right side of the line thats able to fold up DEs. If Perry is the QB I can not stress this enough, if we can not lean on the run against teams like Pitt, we will never win the ACC. We need to have a plan B for when a QB has an off game, or on short yards or when the D needs a breather.

Herbieibis

Bottom line, the inconsistent QB play also hurt the running game, as teams jammed the line of scrimage making Rosier beat them with his arm. Admittedly, we need to be more physical on the offensive line and add some more talent which we have. Clemson is not an offensive juggernaut by any means and Bryant might be their best runner. Their offensive schemes are better. We need a bigger running back, which we have addressed. We have speed and talent at WR but it’s young. I’ve said it before Clemson knows how to win the big games now, which we are still trying to figure out and we have to figure out how to play on the road, where in The Herb’s estimation we suck at. We have talent on the D-Line but Clemson has more, especially at Tackle. They have more depth of overall talent as well but it’s not as bad as it seems. They’ve had the biggest edge at QB with Boyd, Watson and now Bryant who is a better runner than passer. With an up grade at Qb, a more physical O-Line, bigger back and more depth of talent we will get their. 2 more years but be warned the one area we keep just barely keep squeaking by on, D-Tackle, can’t keep happening. Our defense has gotten better because of the tackle play of Norton and McIntosh but if they leave the depth of talent we do not have. Martin and Fines barely played Bethel is still learning the position and Ford will be good but will only be a soph and Silvera hasn’t inked yet and after him there are a few maybes, this is not good enough and has to get better.

Lingard is very much like Homer but with some more wiggle in open space. Davis is more like Walton, shifty back. I'm not sure if George will hit the ground running as a FB, but by the end of the year he could be a problem for LBs & DEs. Other than Walton coming back, only the OL can make the OL look better. I dont think we have many real tackles on the team, a bunch of guard types.

Two 4* DTs and a 3* McIntosh clone is a good start.

roachcane77

George as a lead blocker could prove essential for those short yardage situations we struggled with THIS year.

I truly believe if we had Walton this entire season, we'd be in the Final Four on Jan. 1.

If Davis is THAT (Walton), guy, and Lingard is all he's cracked up to be, we could be running a WHOLE bunch better next year.

YES, we need O-Line and D-Line FOR SURE. If we get those pieces, AND if Perry is all HE's cracked up to be, I'm thinking GREAT THINGS lie before us!

Herbieibis

My question is why do we need a FB? We never use them or unless Richt plans on running more pro-style.

We don't and we won't.

Go Canes!!

In today’s game if the other team had to respect the pass, which Wisconsin will not, it makes running the ball that much easier.

But that being said, this season we saw at UGA what a CMR recruited offensive line and full stable of RBs will do even when the other team knows it’s coming.

BEERicane

Canes ranked 348 of 351 in team FT shooting %age. OUCH!!!!!

WWIN

Merry Christmas everybody!!!

Weve seen that before at UGA under Richt. Moreno & Gurley were both forces behind mean OLs. He just never seemed to have enough to beat the top coaches like Saban or Meyer, or have enough to regularly run the SEC gauntlet. It is a bit concerning that Smart was able to come in and take them to the next level after only a season. Hopefully without the SEC roadblocks, Richt is able to stack enough talent to have his best years, more often.

Go Canes!!

Posted by: His Royal Dudeness | December 25, 2017 at 08:54 PM

When he got hired I posted your same concern.

But once I heard him speak here that went away. Imo CMR and UGA grew stale and he became more of a CEO than a coach.

Change looks like the best thing for both of them. Difference is Kirby took over a loaded roster while Richt had talented but thin team with some pretty gaping holes in it.

Two more seasons and we’ll be at that level every year.

U can’t compare Smart and UGA Richt at this point. Richt didn’t have a 4 team playoff to work with.

Go Canes!!

Hadn’t thought about that. Good point Epi.

Your PR spin game is STRONG.

Merry Christmas all of you CANESPACERS. I must be the only one watching the game on ESPNU. 5 MIN left Canes up by one.

Go Canes!!

Posted by: 86Cane | December 25, 2017 at 09:59 PM

Yeah you need a whole team of people to hype up underachievers like Knowshon Moreno, Todd Gurley, Nick Chubb and Sony Michel.

I mean what did those guys ever do at Georgia?

At least U are consistent, U always miss the point. In fact you are so arrogant and obtuse that most times U don't even understand what the point is.

Only way we beat Wisconsin is change offense up. Can’t rely on Rosier.

84 to 81 FINAL. CANES WIN!!!!

nemo2002

Canes had a much better group of players on the floor to end the game tonight compared to the NM State game the other night.
So, we finished strong.

NICE!

MLAlumni1970

My BB play by play days are severly limited, I think. But, I did my best.
Hard to type with one finger, and keep up with the fast paced scoring.
Hope all of you had a very wonderful day.

Good point. IMO, CMR knows this and will game plan accordingly. They will simplify the game for him, limit his turnovers and let the defense change field position and get scores. It's hard to win games with a QB who can't complete 55% of his throws. Typically, you want at least 60%, and in this offense, 65% should be easy. The injuries to the Canes top playmakers (Walton, Richards and Herndon) were huge, but if I could change something, I would want a higher QB completion percentage. The Canes would have scored a lot more points with some simple execution on short passes. This offense would be totally different

Canes still trying to discover who they are. IMO, the offense should run through Huell and Brown, at least for now

BigWindyCane1

Canes still have a lot to work on before the start ACC play at Pitt

BEERicane

The way the canes are looking now, 6 ACC wins would be an accomplishment. That said, the fix the TOs and FTs, their D should he enough to go be them a few more. Hopefully the get into the dance.

CoCane

Coach L is dropping the ball with Walker so far. He's not used to managing the egos of lottery talent.

Feed Brown and Huell as go to guys. Use Vasiliavic and Walker to spread the floor for them. Then, let Lawrence, Lykes, Izundu and Newton be the roll players.
