What we need is to continue to improve every week and get Pettway (et al) well.  I have had this problem that Pettway has.  It hurts like sin.  It is caused by microscopic tears in the plantar tendon.  My cure was stretching exercises and anti-inflammatories.

The biggest monkey on Malzahn's back is the fact that he has no answers when the game goes off script.  So far, obviously, he was shut down at Clemson and kept trying to run long developing pass patterns and got our QB sacked 11 times.  He made no adjustments.  There were no cut blocks and quick passes and hot reads or anything to try to beat the defense Clemson was using.  Instead, we did what Malzahn has always done: take more time and try to throw deep and mix in some trick plays.

Truly, I think execution in that game, and our first three games, was so lousy that it wouldn't have mattered, but Malzahn/Lindsey have still showed no ability to adjust when the game goes off script.  So, if a team proves they can pressure the QB and still contain the running game, Malzahn is going to have to adjust to plays he hasn't run at Auburn since the last decade, and didn't run many of them then.  He has never demonstrated an ability to do that very well.  Don't give me that "this is Lindsey's offense" crap either.  This is the same problem we've had.

We won the turnover battles and the penalty battles against the M teams of the SEC.  Will we get those calls in Tiger Stadium?

Also, he passes to the speed sweep guy once or twice a game.

Remember, we only pass about 20-25 times a game, there are only so many places to pass, and 5-8 will be down the field.
Passes less than 5 yards and over 40 yards, yes we target the middle of the field.  There is a void between 5 and 40 inside the numbers that we have zero completions.  But, I'm sure you're right and we are saving those to screw up Georgia and Alabama when we really need them.

17 quick ones but now the offense has started to fade. LSU tried to hand us the game early but we can't catch a ball thrown right to a DB. We're playing a program that is so close to death this year Hospice is calling, but we're trying to make their season. So tired of this crap. Hate to be the glass is half full but the past few weeks seemed like a mirage. Same disturbing trends (dropped passes, holding the ball too long in the pocket), but thankfully opponents that have destroyed their programs completely. This is not a top 10 team and definitely not a top 10 offense or offensive scheme. Georgia and Alabama are going to wipe this team out and we'll be listening to another year of CGM talking about how close the program is. Groundhog Day.

Do we not a have 1 damned pass play less than 40 yds in our f'n playbook. WTF. This s&%t is on Gus and Chip. How the F do you blow a 20 pt lead and then proceed to get outscored and outcoached by a lame duck, due to be fired, full time interim coach.
Unbelievable

Gary (announcer) said something like Stidham was 3-10 in the 2nd half and 8 of those passes were over 35 yards....

Yes, but they had him split out and threw to the sideline.  We only use the middle on the deep post.
