Recruiting. It’s improved but not enough to provide needed depth

especially in a year where there have been so many injuries. Oline recruiting has been bad (some bad luck with the likes of Morretti and Polley). They’ve been able to get JC recruits to help on DL. I do like Antwine though.

I think you’re misreading people calling out players (in most cases anyway). Generally players go and and play hard and seem to be in positions to make plays, but sometimes they don’t. Sometimes at key times. Number of potential momentum plays yesterday weren’t finished. Is it coaching? If it was a bunch of heralded 4 stars out there not finishing, I’d be more likely to agree. I think it’s more likely they’re playing to who they are, 3 star recruits who flash at times but are inconsistent. Doesn’t mean they suck, doesn’t mean they’re weak, just means they likely have a lower ceiling.

I’ve brought up Montez a number of times. QB is the most important position on O. Has the OL been bad? Yes. Has the play calling been bad at times? Yes. Have receivers dropped passes? Yes. All factors. But Montez has missed seeing open receivers or completing open passes when they are there at times, a lot of them key momentum shifting times. He hasn’t been the same since the USC game. I think DC’s know they can rattle him. Doesn’t mean he’s a bad QB or that he’s responsible for the 5 game slide, just means he hasn’t been a player that made enough plays to win the last 5 games. He’s been a 3 star player. As QB, he’s going to get the most chances.

And back to recruiting, there aren’t enough other players to take the team up.
