Your take + and -
« on: April 07, 2018, 03:16:23 pm »

What is your greatest concern and what are you most confident about after seeing the spring game?

Mine:
Greatest concern—special teams
Most confident or excited about—aggressiveness of defense.

Greatest concern -- talent and depth on both lines.

Liking -- coaches' different approaches to everything.

I'm worried about kicking and punting - again looks to be terrible.

I'm excited about the offense, defense, and how some guys being moved around can end up contributing.

Greatest concern is the QB.  They did not look comfortable in the offense. 

Defense looks much better.  They have a chance especially when Sosa returns.

And Gerald if he is the player all the schools recruiting him thought.

Except for field goal kicking and the speed between snaps, I don't think there's much more that can be construed from this spring game.

They have either 1 or 2 walkons  coming in that should cure that.

Concerns WRs, kicking game and shotgun snaps.

Like CBs, RBs and the pass rushing possibilities with Ramsey and Agim.

It's hard to tell whether the WRs were average or our CBs are good.  Plus, JC comes back.

Greatest concern is still the lack of SEC speed at alot of positions. Also lack of depth at key spots. Pretty much same concerns I have every year.

Looks like they have enough Qb's to find one that can adequately run the show next year.

Bert wrecked our program worse than he did his liver over the last five years.  Next year is likely to be rugged.  We are not very good, but at least we are thin too...oh wait...

I disagree...the speed and agility of the whole team is better....i see improvements in players been looking for and finally seeing it now.  Defense with new additions this  fall will be sick.  Offense with addition of rakeem boyd will help alot.  I think WR is probably the biggest question....but petway did show out.

+….Defensive line and defensive backfield..Liked the way Ramsey and Kurl looked
+….Whaley and O'Grady looked like they will adapt well to the offense
-….Kicking,QB's,Team Speed,..am doubting we will have a good OL.

Coaches will have to work around some deficient areas but I am confident this group will be one that adjusts and plays to our strengths. Overall it seems to my eyes there is a lot to do to be good but I like the positive approach these coaches are taking. It may take 3-4 years but I think better days are coming

I never said we'd have good o line...however it is clear they have lost weight...all you can ask of inferior talent is to give it 100%   the O line won't be any good until a whole new crew is recruited

I agree my question is whether Ramsey looked good because he was going against a subpar oline or if he is going to show out because he is that type of playmaker

Kelley is a plodder...he will get knocked on his ass by the DE's in the SEC running that "zone option read"...book that....he may have a better arm, but we don't have the O line to protect a one dimensional plodder like Cole Kelley....he may have a better arm, but if you are getting hit almost every pass play while releasing the ball what good does a strong arm do you ?

Kelly is more mobile then you give him credit for. Granted he isn't a dual threat QB but he does have some mobility.

Ryan Mallett was a plodder and Kelley is more mobile than Ryan was.

I hope this is the case as a good QB can hide a multitude of problems. Brandon Allen was great at that a few years ago. I honestly didn't see that guy today. I don't think CCM has either or he'd have named a starter by now. Storey struggles throwing…Kelley is not a true runner…it may be there for a young guy to take but there are only so many snaps in practice and true freshmen rarely get many. I hope the QB play improves between now and the fall or it's going to be a long season

Coach Morris is going to keep going and he's going change the culture at Fayetteville.   
The mindset of the fans and the players have to change in order to be considered a winner this is what it's going to take if we're going to win the SEC

Keep in mind most of the recruits are not on the team yet they won't be here till the fall.

O line still looks shakey at best.

QBs are shakey at best.

Defensive backfield looked good, but QBs were shakey so can't tell if they were actually that good. Should have a talented starting group.

Cant tell much about the D line, because of line 1.

Pettway has filled out and looks like a full grown man, Mike woods seems to be a steal for a 3 star headed to SMU. Everyone else is totally meh.

We have 4 backs, and TE's have depth. Beyond that I'm not sure what else I saw that was truly positive. We will have to recruit ourselves out of the hole bert left us in. We are just not a high level sec team at all right now.

None of it matters until they sign. The class he signed last cycle won’t cut it. However, he had a limited window.

Well, Morris was quoted as saying he couldn't see how this team only won 4 games last year. So, he obviously thinks there is some talent on the team to win more.

I thought for 12 practices it wasn't god awful . But pretty close lol.. some wide outs that can get open are gona be important ... Petway and woods only ones that showed that they can today ... Tight ends looked good , center was bad wobbly slow snaps , running backs as a group were good , secondary looked good ( or our wide outs are really bad ) hopefully a QB emerges in the fall ...

Overall concern is we still look very slow. Especially on offense at the skill positions. Still looks like a Bret Bielema team.

Positive takaways I was very impressed with the qb play of Hyatt. Nice zip on the ball, quick release, and of course he has some speed to take off and run the ball. Defense was impressive overall...linebacker play and especially d backs looked much better coached than we are used to seeing.
