What grade would you give Gophers coaches in OSU game?
Yeah, but failure to execute on both sides of the ball, horribly tackling, receivers not open and dropping balls, poor blocking,horrible QB decision making….Blah, blah, blah.
I completely agree that we were way outmatched but it is the total lack of any semblance of improvement in ANY area of the offense that gives me so much cause for concern. What area of offense are we better in now than we were in week 1? It seems that our passing game has regressed massively, and Kaliakmanis seems to have regressed more than anyone.
When in a David vs Goliath game the coach communicates early to the team, while it is still a close game, that he isn’t interested in pulling out all stops to go for a win, it has got to be hard to keep playing full bore.Players tried to make plays. This is actually first time where I would say the effort of the coaches and the staff was a huge let down. To me they looked at the film and decided they couldn't win without even trying anything creative or new from a playcalling perspective. Yeah we expected to lose but seeing the guys trying in the first half and seeing the head coach play for a punt, that was deflating and very disappointing.
Not surprised at all. The loss was expected.
