Not HCPP's fault.... I can't wait to see his recruits

Watching this game it’s clear that Deleone and HCPP tried to go down field and mix things up ... they tried to make lemonade from lemons. Louisville did not impress me at all, and what I saw today was a talent gap on offense. I see UL WR's making diving catches, I switch over to RU and see a WR jump over 3 players and catch the ball ... I switch back to UConn and see wide open drops and QB passes that are not even close to WR's (not that it would matter). It is not Pasqualoni's fault that our quarterback and wide receivers are below average. They are Edsall’s legacy, who has moved on to destroy Maryland’s passing game.

I look forward to seeing Cochran with Nelly from Florida, the BC WR transfer next year. Hopefully we can fill the RB spot with Dobbs likely not eligible. Bottom line I want to see this offense with players cable of making it run. We might be surprised.

There's no talent gap, that absurd. L'ville was awful, we were worse.

I agree with a Forte post, yay!

At WR there was certainly a talent gap. And QB. And RB. But other than that - we were equal!

Agreed. We have no one to blame for this loss other than the UCONN team. Worst game of ALL TIME by a receiving group, and our turnover that occurred when for some reason our 300 # DT tried to block a punt and gave them a 1st down with running into the punter....I would have bet eleventy bujillion dollars that UL was going to score after that play by Reyes. And I would have won that bet unfortunately.

How can you say it's not the fault of the coaching staff with missed tackles all over the place and dropped passes galore? Teach these kids how to tackle and teach them how to catch a ball. These coaches are not doing that.

lololololololololol

You're so right, I'm sure catching and tackling have NEVER been worked on in practice.

Christ. Do these thoughts really go through peoples' heads?

You don't think they teach them how to tackle or catch? Really? Poor tackling is a function of not playing with heart. It comes from within. Catching footballs is no different.

Didn't coach P pick the starting QB? At some point, a good coaching staff gets their team to play better than their individual talent. Not happening here through 10 games. Stupid TV blacked out ESPN3 here in NOLA so had to listen on 1080, announcer made every pass seem like caught, should have been intercepted, drop or waaaaaaaay off target. Will get chance to watch rerun later but whatever the real story on passing, didn't get it done.

Or don't put a QB out there that is throwing the ball 3/4 speed. These guys are tentative about getting popped, sorry the dropsies don't exist, being concerned about getting light up does. Disagree, decision on who is throwing that ball is the coaches. Isiah had some bad drops, but some if those were guys concerned and turning early.

Listen wise @ss, when you see dropped passes like today and missed tackles like today resulting in an opening kickoff score, and slumping shoulders on the sidelines it points to coaching failures on several fronts.

We're talking WIDE open receivers (like Kash, Isaiah, and Griffen) dropping balls that would have gone for 20 and 30 yards. Many on 3rd downs too.

I just completely disagree. Players have to play with passion and heart. That isn't something you coach. It comes from within. There were many moments today where the players didn't play with everything they had.

Were we distracted by any newly released video games? It does happen.

These players, mostly offense, have no focus or discipline. Let's just say they haven't bought into the new offense. Or the OC.

I know we are missing our best corner but at times you could drive a truck through the holes UL's OL was creating.

Missed tackles, penalties and dropped passes falls into the focus and effort department.

I think PP and his coaches have lost some of the players. I would look for more than a few players leaving after this year, which is not unusual with a new coach, but I think there will more than usual.

Clearly you never played organized sports. Or never had a coach for anything.

You are really on your high horse today.

And you think they've been stressing that in practice? I don't. Has this coaching staff done a good job trying to get this team up for the game during this week? IMO, nope. If you think these kids don't have heart then ask yourself why? COACHING.

I'm not sure how much blame HCPP deserves.

I do know that last year our special teams were so rock solid that they pretty much led us to a BCS birth.

Today our special teams lost us the game IMO. We are not good enough to be able to give away 14 points on specials. The kick off unit looked woefully slow to react on that opening kick off. The Louisville kick off returner was slowed several times (due to missed tackles by us) and still there were not enough UConn players near him to bring him down. And the Reyes penalty cannot happen...EVER. That changed the entire game.

We can wait for HCPP to bring in his own players especially on offense to make a better judgement. But in the meantime we have to know that we cannot give up 14 points on special teams and expect to win a game. We didn't seem to know that today.

Just like penalties, a couple drops or missed tackles is on the player, but 8+ dropped passes and a ton of missed tackles is on the coaches, just like a ton of penalties would be. That goes for any level of football. It is about a lack of preparation and mental toughness. That is extremely common knowledge.

I don't remember not seeing Randy's team play with everything they had.

When you "buy" what the coaches are selling you play disciplined and focused football.

Last years run by this team was proof of that. I really think PP dumped too much too fast on these guys and he doesn't have enough guys made for his system, on offense and defense.

Sad to say but we need young and hungry, and I'm not talking about players or recruiting. Say what you want about FHCRE but that was one of his strong points, getting his kids up for a game.

So what do they do at practice, if tackling and catching are not a part of it? You seem to know it all, after all YOU (and only you on this board) have played organized sports, and YOU have had a coach.

I don't know how you guys think the coaches can "make" these players more focused and play with passion. Just because it happens in large quantities, doesn't shift the blame to the coaches. I'll just agree to disagree.
