Does kalil being hurt change Chuds read option?

9 posts in this topic

Kalil is a very good blocker in open space and gets to the 2nd level. Hangartner cannot....at all. Hell, he's the one of the ground every play. Could Chud actually use the I formation more?

If we don't change it up, the next player on IR will be Cam.

It might force Chud to be more traditional and simplify the offense..which I think may be a positive at this point.

if the exuberant amount of failures running the option doesnt make him get rid of it, then losing our center should be the last straw.

The read option based offense has not been working all year and we kept beating our heads into it. I don't think Kalil going out is going to change that.

I still think the only chance we have during the year for a slight schematic change is the bye week - so if we're going to adjust a little this will be when we do it. But I don't think it will have a thing to do with the OLine shakeup.

Didn't think about it that way. Not that it's good that Kalil is hurt, or that I will watch any more games until it's worth the time to do so, but maybe Kalil being out will kill the read-option.

we'll have to call some shorter routes, for sure. expect quicker pressure in the middle.

    • I would be more than happy with a battle of the Carolinas for the title (if for no other reason than it means we got by UK and KU). Please beat Florida for me.  I am sick of hearing about them.
    • Ross for me. Davis is good, but the same way Ross' previous injuries give people pause, so should Davis' competition. You can only play who's on your schedule, but Davis played against inferior talent and, for the most part, got shutdown against good schools (Wisconsin, OSU). He did dominate the other schools so I'm not saying he won't be a good pro. I just think this T.O. talk and saying he's going to beast out could be premature.  Davis last game he was shut down by Wisconsin and then, due to injury, hasn't run at the combine or his pro day. For me, that's a little risky too at #8.  I wouldn't take Ross at 8, but what we need based off of our roster is a player of Ross' abilities and strengths, IMO. I wouldn't be mad with Davis, but I prefer Ross and would not want either at #8.
