Twelve quarters now against Division 1/BCS programs without an offensive TD - dating back to last season. Awesome!

Same old UConn - no passing attack whatsoever. The 3 QB experiment was cute against 1-AA Fordham. Michael Box was too impatient, perhaps. He might have been starting by next week.

Possible bright spots for UConn WRs: T Jones, G Davis & I Moore. All others . . . Nothing!

L McCombs looks like he can be a special runner, but geez. . . Catch the ball. How many hundred guys in that stadium could make catches on the balls that were dropped.

Please, please throw out that pass play to 94. That play is always thrown 2 or 3 yards short of the first down and sorry he's way to slow afoot to pick up the needed yardage. Just stop calling that play.

UConn needs to review the concept of a vertical game. Throw the ball, first down once in a while.

It's the same players. Why would anyone think we're going to see something revolutionary?

Edsall left us with no proven playmakers anywhere at the skill positions, a JR walk-on QB, a RS freshman QB who seems to only be able to run, and a true freshman who just isn't ready.

Are people really shocked by this?

I think the only people who would be shocked are those who believe that by merely throwing more often you will have a quality passing game.

Throw less that way you encourage high school playmakers that UConn is the place to go as prep for the next level. Randy never really utilized the passing game and obviously couldn't recruit it.

I said the same thing today to my Dad and friends.

Take the numbers off the jerseys and you wouldn't know a difference in the UConn offense since Dan-O left town.

So we attract recruits by throwing 10/27 for 99 yards and 3 INTs....and losing?

If we had caught a few passes out of the backfield we win that game. McCombs was so wide open out of the backfield and we can't do anything with it.

Totally agree.

Or if Shoemate goes in on one of the first two goalline situations and punches it in, we win.

McEntee is being asked to make too many long sideline passes that he doesn't have the arm for. Those are NFL passes he is being asked to make. The only chance for McEntee to be successful is with short quick timing routes, AKA West coast offense. Unfortunately that type of offense can take years to master.

Want proof that Randy Edsall is a staunch adherent to the concept of fitting the offensive scheme to your personnel's ability to execute it? At UConn,Edsall surveyed his QB talent after DanO and coached like Woody Hayes. At Maryland, he's morphing into Don Coryell.

Randy Edsall is a hell of a football coach. The same folks that were ready to run him out of town will be ready to string Coach P up by the middle of this season. Just the way most college football fans are.

I do find it funny that the majority of the board seemed pretty enthusiastic about Coach P and it only took one game for that to swing in the other direction, lol.

Doubt that. Remember Randy is the coach that brought in all tha QB ineptness. Give him time and Maryland will soon become one dimensional with most of the stadium being able to predict the next play.
