“I am sure there are some really good efforts in there, and I’m sure there are some really good things in there, but that’s all masked by the turnovers”. Addazio’s post game interview seems to focus solely on the turnovers, as he tries to convince us that the offense was fine other than that. I hate to break it to you Steve, but the turnovers weren’t the problem. Turnovers are flukey, they happen. We could have lived with that and written off all the fumbles as a fluke if the offense was still clicking the rest of the game. The problem was that even if you take away the turnovers, that doesn’t change the fact that we had 26 yards of total offense through three quarters against one of the worst teams in D1 college football. That doesn’t change the fact that through three quarters of play we were averaging 1.1 yards gained per snap. THAT is the problem, and THAT is your fault, not the turnover’s fault.
If you can bear to have flashbacks of Ron Zook telling us everything is going to be ok, go ahead and watch the video up above where Addazio promises us that they’re going to get back to work and everything is going to be fine. The problem is, the only issue that he acknowledges is the turnovers, and there is a lot more to be fixed in this offense than turnovers. A good start would be the playcalling, and only one guy needs to get to work on that. Urban Meyer, by finding a new guy to do it, by finding someone that will use all our talented players properly.
