Did you include the Knox drop on the two-point attempt at Auburn in that game analysis? Because as a two-point play it’s not an official pass attempt. Just curious and too lazy to go look it up :stuck_out_tongue:

Franks QBR for the Ole Miss game was 26.9; his lowest of the season and really dragged his average down. Still, a lot better than Corral’s at 9.0.

I felt our Hogs just didn’t execute well on offense on Saturday. Too many movement penalties in the second half, too many drops, too many poor throws – the offense just didn’t work consistently. We could have won this one by 25 points, but didn’t.

I wonder what percent of the categories “inaccurate and interceptable passes” might actually be wrong routes run or miscommunication between receiver and QB? You seem to hear that a lot from TV commentators.

And the worst part of the Worst Pass, was that Warren was in single coverage, slant route, and was an easy pass to complete-safety was outside on the wheel route. Would have been a foot race to the end zone.

He threw to the wrong receiver the next drive also, in a similar fashion.

Oh well, as someone else said here, “a lesson learned cheap”.

Seems like our O REALLY missed spring practice. also just emphasizes what an incredible job our defensive staff has done, without spring practice.


We have some athletes on the defensive side; I think we’re missing some athletes in the OLine.

Could it be one thing we’re forgetting in the Franks analysis is that there was a 20-30 MPH wind blowing during this game. I think I saw somewhere that there was at least one 40 MPH gust recorded. Winds that strong make throwing a football with any kind of consistent accuracy very difficult. Just ask Corral; that had to have been one factor contributing to his poor performance Saturday, not to mention our amazing defense!! WPS!
