Can happen when you pass. Old adage now should be "there are 4 things that can happen when you pass - 3 of them bad". QB sack/fumble now needs to be added. All pass plays that resulted in turnovers.

incontrovertible facts: you need field turf to win and you don't need a running game.


Wasn't UNC similar this year as well? *

Kelly's offensive philosophy invites chaos.

Therefore, shit like this falls outside the bounds of randomness and squarely within the bounds of the probable. In other words, he consistently invites bad things to happen.

However, his passing in the 98 SoCal game on the first 2 drives should be mentioned here.

you can add USC '14 and the common denominator was....

.....throwing the ball like crazy to start the game rather than establishing a running attack.

My final plea to Kelly on my favorite DCE of the year: play McGlinchey in a 2-TE set and run the ball.


Maybe add to that Oklahoma 2013

Same common denominator


2007 UM: ND managed -19 yards and 2 TO in 1st 4 "drives"
by kmurphy173  (2014-12-19 16:53:24)     cannot delete  |  Edit  |  Return to Board  |  Ignore Poster   |   Highlight Poster  |   Reply to Post

On the flipside was 2008 at ND: Michigan had 51 yards, 2 turnovers and a failed 4th down attempt before getting the ball back down 21-0 with 4:50 remaining in the 1st.

2007 GT was similarly awful yardage wise but at least ND managed to get out of the 1st quarter before turning the ball over.


UM 2007 will always be the worst game ever played.

We will never touch that again. There were exactly zero good things that happened in that game.


Wasn't USC 07 the game with no first downs into 3rd Q?

I don't care how badly Ty recruited. I have to imagine that if Weis had decided, "We are going to run right, run left, run middle, in random order, over and over and over," we could have managed one first down in the first half.

That was the worst football I have ever seen at any level.


Worse - it was actually the 2008 USC game..

.. not that the 2007 USC game was much prettier.


Everybody forgets UM 2003 (exact same score as UM 07)

I have seen a couple of people mention FSU 03 (0-37), and that was not a good FSU team..

38-0 loss to USC in 2007, and 37-0 loss to FSU in 2003.

That SC loss in 2007 was so demoralizing, in part because I drove 3.5 hours from MadTown, to meet my sister and her husband, and their son for the game -- but needed to get back right after the game.

Got their just in time for kickoff, and ND was so pathetic. Sanchez started in place of an injured starter JD Booty for USC, and we were still down 31-0 with 9 minutes left, I got a jump on traffic and got home.

7+ hours of driving alone for literally 2.5 hours of football and didn't even have any time for a pregame tailgate. I was saying WTF to myself all the way back to Madison.


Yes but did you like the "throwbacks"? *
