    I agree.. Its ****ing horse**** Arky offense.. I think it kills momenteum.. Yeah, it works against crap teams like Miami of Ohio, but it doesn't vs better teams..

    I wasn't happy at all with the offensive playcalling today, but that wasn't the reason we lost the game, so I won't bitch about it too much..

    From my seats outside of section 107, that direct snap play isn't something I'd call more than a few times a season. Maybe it is a set-up for the 2008 playbook. Sure hasn't done much for the Buffs in 2007. I kinda thought Hawkins and Helfrich would have a bigger bag of trick plays up their sleeves. But that direct snap is turning out to be a one-trick pony.

    What's up with whoppers, they're like chocolates with the sweet sweet texture of chalk?

    I was wondering the exact same thing after I saw that play for about the 3rd time tonight. As stated above, maybe a few times per season and that's about it. And it's not like there's any doubt what we're gonna do on that play.

    That's the type of play that might work once a game, not four times in a half. And it sure as hell doesn't work if you don't snap the ball for 5-6 seconds after your QB goes in motion. The defense has time to adjust.

    Agree Boulder Buff, It would look good once or twice a year, but not 4 or 5 times a half. I was frustrated with it and the crowd started booing a little when they did it.
