My Biggest Concern...

A QB isn't going to even get a chance if our Center can't even snap the ball…so far this is my biggest concern and it NEEDS to be addressed otherwise it will lead to not just to turnovers, but to injuries. Anyone else alarmed?

Re: My Biggest Concern...

For the SECOND friggin year in a row - YES!

Our local H.S. teams (all five of 'em) can snap the ball why can't COLLEGIATE level players? Why do we recruit players who can't master a simple snap (either regular or especially shotgun)? What do we pay COACHES for? Their PRIMARY job is to TEACH! As a former Coach myself, bad snap - RUN A MILE, 2 bad snaps RUN 2 MILES, etc…

They WILL improve!

Same for fumbles and drops (receptions AND pics), missed blocks, missed reads, PENALTIES - THE SAME!

How many centers are on the roster?? 2 or 3 and not a single one can make consistently good snaps. What about moving a G to C and benching the centers.

Hate to say it but they have tried that. Chris Chappell has tried center - not good so far. And I would LOVE to get his size and strength on that line - we are still too small!

Technically, or legitimately?

1. 2

2. 0

Good one Rick!  ;D

How that is possible I will NEVER understand - to me it is THE most important position on the line! Don't have to be as big, but more technical and mental ability.

Re: My Biggest Concern...

Have to get better with those snaps! shotgun snap over the head against uf will either be 6 or a hurt qb scrambling for the ball. I know while watching one of our qbs in highschool this never happened.

Re: My Biggest Concern...

It would be nice to get Chappell on the line due to his size. I cannot believe that there isn't a G on the roster that can make the move with an offseason of practice.

Re: My Biggest Concern...

my concern is recruiting this year, this was suppose to be the year with the new stadium, but now we do not have a head coach in place so how is a recruit suppose to make an educated decision. We need to get the coach in order SOON, so when recruits start coming to the games in the new stadium, they know who the leader will be.... Mike Leach!!!
