Problem: our Defense practices against a RUNLESS Offense

Reasons our defense has had problems this season:

  1. relatively short fields for opponents (31 yardline on avg for key scoring drives. Example: 4 of K State's drives were from 30 yards or less) due to poor play by our offense and special teams.... Excellent post by ElusiveShadow: http://www.burntorangenation.com/2010/11/9/1802336/identifying-the-root-problem-what-muschamp-critics-are-missing
  2. having to clean up after our too-many offensive turnovers (WTH do you when expect our QB throws 5 interceptions in a game?!)
  3. too much time on the field for defense, leading to both physical and psychological fatigue,
  4. their daily practice and gameplanning are against a RUNLESS offense

The strengths that Muschamp brought over from the SEC have been diminishing over the past 2 years, as he has had to play/practice his defense against a Texas offense whose OC has a playbook that is shallow (especially when it comes to rushing) and incompetent o-line coaching, and hence a nearly non-existent tight-end gameplan and awful run game.

As a result, our defensive gameplanning/coaching and players are NOT getting enough exposure and practice in defending the run.

As for why our rush offense has been so pathetic, that's a whole other story (which we've commented about numerous times), but most notably: inept o-line block scheming (lack of strategy and/or bad teaching), no REAL/strong RB coach, a shallow playbook, poor gameplanning, simply stupid playcalling much of the time, and a lack of adjustments during games.
