BTI’s Rants and Ramblings: Monday Morning Offensive Playcalling Breakdown (Vanderbilt)

The breakdown of the offensive production in various situations against Vanderbilt, as well as the combined season statistics through 10 games in each of those situations:

1ST DOWN
Run: 13 rushes for 87 yards (6.7 ypc)
Pass: 6-14, 74 yards, 2 sacks for -5 yards

Combined Season Statistics
Run: 146 rushes for 787 yards (5.4 ypc), 3 TD
Pass: 81-136, 940 yards, 6 TD, 6 INT, 8 sacks for -50 yards

RECAP: Those rushing numbers don’t look too bad, right?  Well if you take out the 66-yard run by Boom, you had 12 rushes for 21 yards.  The running game was basically ineffective.  The passing stats were pretty poor too, taking out Barker’s first 2 throws.

2ND DOWN AND LONG (6 yards or more)
Run: 10 rushes for 64 yards (6.4 ypc)
Pass: 6-7, 36 yards, 1 TD

Combined Season Statistics
Run: 71 rushes for 363 yards (5.1 ypc), 1 TD
Pass: 44-80, 447 yards, 1 TD, 2 INT, 4 sacks for -25 yards

RECAP: The rushing game wasn’t terrible here although a couple of the better rushes were QB scrambles after protection broke down.  The passing game was efficient but had no deep gains.  I think a lack of confidence in the QB’s was showing up here.

2ND DOWN AND SHORT (5 yards or less)
Run: 3 rushes for 24 yards, 1 TD
Pass: 0-4, 1 INT

Combined Season Statistics
Run: 38 rushes for 134 yards (3.5 ypc), 6 TD
Pass: 15-20, 108 yards, 1 INT

RECAP: The horrendous INT by Towles is highlighted here.  Just an overall ineptitude from the passing game.

3RD DOWN AND LONG (6 yards or more)
Run: 2 rushes for 21 yards (10.5 ypc) (converted 1 of 2)
Pass: 1-4, 8 yards, 1 INT (converted 0 of 4)

Combined Season Statistics
Run: 14 rushes for 156 yards (11.1 ypc), 1 TD (converted 8 of 14)
Pass: 38-69, 551 yards, 2 TD, 3 INT, 7 sacks for -47 yards (converted 23 of 76)

RECAP: Pathetic pathetic pathetic.  No breaking news here but the passing game was completely inept, including the horrible Barker Pick-6.  The one conversion was a Barker scramble.

3RD DOWN AND SHORT (5 yards or less)
Run: 4 rushes for 10 yards (2.5 ypc) (converted 1 of 4)
Pass: 1-3, 8 yards (converted 1 of 3)

Combined Season Statistics
Run: 25 rushes for 93 yards (3.7 ypc) (converted 14 of 25)
Pass: 8-23, 86 yards, 4 sacks for -33 yards (converted 7 of 27)

RECAP: Not much to say.  7 plays run, 18 yards gained, 2 out of 7 conversions made on 3rd and short.  Offense just couldn’t keep itself on the field.  Hurts the defense too.

    Remember the good old days when Matt Roark had only 3 plays and we still beat Tennessee?
