With so many Seminole fans scratching their heads this past week over the debacle in Wake Forest, I have found myself asking questions and really searching for answers from various places, friends, blogs, and websites. More than just being disgusted with the situation, but asking why are we here in this situation. I've heard a number of issues, many of them here on TN, but wondered what has to be addressed first. In other words, what are the most impacting issues in a ranked format and thought I'd try my first FanPost in order to get some feedback from others.
So, here are my thoughts and I would love to hear from others.
1. Let down from Oklahoma loss
2. Maturity/Experience (mentally and physically) of team, especially leaders.
3. Injuries- never seen this many, especially key players (EJ)
4. O-line run blocking
5. Stupid Penalties- especially personal fouls
6. 3rd down defense
7. Too much pre-season build up
8. Offensive lack of reading defense- from quaterback checks at the line to RB blitz pick up and WR blocking
9. Some coaching- Hudson sticks out to me, some Trickett but think he's trying to make the best with bad options
10. Hunger/Passion/Concern from players
5 of the 10 are fixable in the immediate future. The other 5 will take time. What are your thoughts?
