Fixable problems on offense

Watching the games thus far this season, I have come to a few conclusions regarding our offensive difficulties

1)Forget about "establishing the run"

There was a lot of emphasis on a "downhill scheme" in the offseason.  I say quit trying to be something you're NOT.  Texas just doesn't run the ball well and hasn't for years.  We need to accept this.  When its 3rd and 3, put the ball in Colt's hands and let him hit that quick slant.  No more handoffs on anything longer than 3rd and 1.

2)Stop getting cute with the punting damnit

Left punt, pooch punt, rugby punt....just kick it normally!  Ive seen enough of the shenanigans. 

3)Ditch the wildhorn

We tried this last year.  It just throws off the rhythm of the offense, and 3/4 of the time ends in a negative play.

4)Review the WR configuration

Shipley looks great at split-end thus far, but now whos gonna get those "must-have" catches over the middle and on those hot routes?  Buckner's been okay at flex, but is what we have now an upgrade from last years setup?

 

Am I forgetting anything?
