Asking for a friend's kid, who is in the eighth grade and loves KFAN and 1500.
If Sanford had been fired last winter he wouldn't need firing every week now. Yes, he was better than last week but how could he not be? He was still poor today. The offense shows little imagination.Let's face it: someone must be fired. Every single week.
Take what they give you. If you beat them when they do that, AND execute better than the defense on some of those plays and win the game, it is a sound offensive game plan. This is Big Ten football. In the end you have to take what they want you to do AND run the ball & STOP the run. Purdue didn’t run the ball and stop the run enough in the second half and Coach Fleck and his staff took advantage of that and won that BT game on the road, in the rain when trailing at half time. It was an excellent BT road win in the rain on that grass, drenched foreign territory football field. Well played by Gopher players and coaches!!!If Sanford had been fired last winter he wouldn't need firing every week now. Yes, he was better than last week but how could he not be? He was still poor today. The offense shows little imagination.
It's good to balance out run/pass attack but he emphasized deep ball too much at expense of keeping drives going by mixing runs with more short routes.
We are still running play clock down for no good reason. Mix that up with quick snaps like all good offenses do.
A decent game for Sanford is C-. Fleck can do better.
