Thread: Injuries hindering UL's receiving game

  1. UL Football Injuries hindering UL's receiving game

    Last week, UL coach Mark Hudspeth gushed over the sight of a receiving corps led by fifth-year senior Jamal Robinson and chock-full of promising true freshman.

    Guessing we should expect a heavy dose of the running game, since Robinson will most likely be double teamed all night and we don't have much experience from any other receiver. Does this mean starting a more mobile QB, who can run also, even if that QB isn't the real no. 1?????

    I don't see the strategy changing at all. We still have plenty firepower at the WR position. And if they hone in on J-Rob, even better for the other young receivers, and really, I believe that will be Robinson's biggest value to our passing attack. Just the threat of him makes us better.

    Yeah, the injuries are impacting practice, because of the number of reps, but if we don't incur anymore, we are still in good shape for gameday.

    More reps for the freshmen, learn a lot more a lot faster. A big reason freshmen usually take longer to come along is they get limited reps because of guys in front of them.

    By this time in his career, Robinson should be good enough to get 100+ yards per game in the Sun Belt regardless of the coverage.

    The problem I have seen with him in the past is that on plays where he knows he will not get the ball, he takes the play off and runs a lazy route. When he is one of the main targets, he runs a decent route. If I can pick up those tenancies from the stands, a halfway decent DB can also.

    Just in case anyone wondered where Austin ended up.

    Former Biloxi standout receiver Scott Austin transfers from Louisiana to Pearl River CC

    Not excusing lazy routes, and I also mentioned to my buddies that he did that as well.. But, with TB, we were a 1 option passing game. Had our QB gone through progressions, the entire corps would have been engaged and sharp (I believe). Hard to stay focused when you're the 3rd option on a pass play and only 5% of the time does the QB even get to the 2nd option, much less the 3rd.

    I hope they single cover Gabe Fuselier. Trust me he will go off.

    Agreed, but I don't see him as a downfield threat. I see screens and quick passes to him and the other freshmen. With Robinson as our only (IMO) downfield threat, UK can take that away. So, why not focus on our strength, the running game, just for this game! If we can win time of possession and keep it a close game going to Q4, we gotta real shot at winning. If we fall behind by a couple of scores and HAVE to throw, I think we're in trouble, especially with inexperienced (I didn't say not talented) WR's. So, starting our most mobile QB (whomever that is) gives us our best shot. (Again, IMO)

    Yes re: Gabe, which is why I like getting him the ball EARLY in the play and let him do his thing! Is Scott a downfield threat? Idk. Can we get him the ball? All unknowns at this point, I suspect.

    A downfield threat is someone who is fast enough to get over the top of the defense, we have that. We have a QB who Hud said might throw the best deep ball he has ever seen. Haack has a very strong arm. I know one thing that isn't an unknown...every time we tried to do what you are saying early against a P5.... We get destroyed.

    Scott is a downfield threat! Broadway couldn't throw a deep ball for ____. We have talented guys at wr. That is not a position of concern.

    More of a legitimate concern would be if we have the o-line to provide adequate protection for a downfield passing game.

    I promise you there is not a defense in the country that can stop Devin Scott from beating them over the top at least 3-4 times per game. Our WR corps will be fine. I'm not worried at all about the WR corps.

    If that's the way the coaches wanted to use Gabe they would have left him at the slot receiver and not moved him outside. With the projected starters today he will be the fastest person on the field. I don't understand why you don't see him as a down field threat? Before Brasil came on the team Gabe was in the top 2 fastest on the team now he's in the top 3.

    Um hello? White guy = possession receiver. Please get your stereotypes right. I bet sometime during this year an announcer will say Fuse has deceptive speed.
