Title: How will Arkansas beat South Carolina?
Post by: Tarheelhawg on October 01, 2017, 09:01:20 pm
Arkansas may be favored to win by two to three points.  After watching some of the game between A&M and South Carolina, it looks like their passing game can be a strength which matches well for them.  The Carolina defense appears a little stronger overall.  However, Arkansas appears to have a more balanced offense with a better ground game.  If Arkansas can pressure Bentley and contain the receivers (S. Carolina is without their best receiver), a win is v. possible.  A&M sacked Bentley about 6 - 7 times.
What would be the best path to victory?

Maybe the Hogs could make their grand entrance to the field dressed in pink tutus and ballet slippers; it's feasible that South Carolina might die laughing, and be incapacitated long enough for the Hogs to establish a comfortable lead.

It's a shot.

Arkansas needs to run the ball. The Hogs are averaging over 200 ypg rushing and SC is allowing over 200 ypg. Run the ball ball and run the clock. Most of the stats favor Arkansas.  Everyone is complaining but the Hogs are converting 50% of their third downs. Keeping the other team's offense on the sideline is the Hogs best defense.

A friend of mine is a Gamecock fan; he can't believe that D. Williams has already scored five touchdowns.  He is also feeling that without DEEBO SAMUEL they aren't the same team.  The gamecocks are not overly confident. It is definitely a winnable game.

Enos needs to insert a true West Coast style offense that will allow AA to get rid of the ball much faster by having the WR's running shorter routes. This will spread out the defense to allow Hayden, Whaley and Williams to have some lanes to run the ball. You take the pressure off of the OL and it saves your QB from getting brutalized by the oppossing defense. We have the TE's to get it done and the Receivers looked solid against NMSU. I like any of our RB's in free space and think that they all have the ability to take it to the house once they get into the 2nd level of the defense. Just dink them to death all the way down the field and keep their offense sitting on the sideline.

I'd be so happy for that guy if this happened. He didn't get much of a chance at South Carolina. He never even really got carries in conference games. Seems weird because he was a pretty decent 4 star recruit with really good offers and looks great here.

West coast like 90s Niners depends on great OL play. Don't know about variations.

According to ESPN, they have only given up 200 yards rushing to an opponent once all season and that was the aggies 239. Twice this season they didn't even give up 100 yards rushing in games with one of those being NC State.

We have been terrible on 3rd down in our 2 losses. The complaining is justified.

Starts with protecting Allen. They will start out stacking the box. If we can't pass protect we won't be able to back them off the line of scrimmage.

I don't think we will have as bad as a problem in pass pro as we did against A&M based on the fact that A&M leads the SEC in sacks with 20. Meanwhile, South Carolina is 12th in the conference with 8 sacks. We are 13th in the conference with 7.

I don't have much confidence because New Mex St got some big hits on Allen and they are much worse defensively. You can get pressure on a qb and not get the sack too.

If Allen gets some protection, and is able to throw the ball,  we should be okay.   If he is running for his life every play,  we are in trouble.
Title: Re: How will Arkansas beat South Carolina?
Post by: Tarheelhawg on October 01, 2017, 11:01:25 pm
Some quick slants , screens, and jet sweeps would help keep the defense off balance.  But will have to establish the run even if they load the box so the play action passing is effective. The o-line has to protect AA at all costs.  This will be a tough but winnable game.

That was one of the things I loved about BP's offense, the clearing routes.  He would flood a zone and then would flood an area of a zone leading into another coverage zone.  It was a thing of beauty.  Especially when LB's were involved, he'd make them dizzy.  He always kept the D off balance.

Post by: jgphillips3 on October 01, 2017, 11:26:35 pm
This comes down to our O-line.  If they keep playing like matadors and letting people run free at AA, we lose.  If they keep the sack count down to 2 or less and the hurries under 5, we can win.  Our whole season thus far has been the same tale.  If the O-line stops sucking, we could start winning.  Given the multiple combinations we seem to be trying, it seems that CBB’s sense of self preservation has finally won out over his stubbornness.  If he finds five that can protect AA, we can finish with 6-7 wins.  If protection continues to be Swiss cheese, 4-5 wins.  The defense will improve somewhat as the season progresses the longer they play this scheme.

Based upon us against A&M, and them against A&M, I would say we probably have the better offense, and they have the better defense. Maybe a toss up, with them having some advantage being at home. A winnable game, but not one I feel we are clearly the better team.

When looking at stats early in the year you have to consider who the teams have played.  Other than our common opponent...Texas A&M...South Carolina has played North Carolina State, Kentucky, Missouri, and Louisiana Tech.  I don't see a Florida A&M, or even a New Mexico State, in that group.  I guess Louisiana Tech vs. NMSU is debatable.

The lack of a field goal kicker may bite us in the tush this game. First real road test so I have no idea how the hogs will respond. One thing that concerns me is when I looked in on some of the SEC games this weekend (missed SC game) I was amazed at the difference in size and body shape of our DL vs other SEC DL! They may look like Tarzan and play like Jane but I would take my chances with them. I'm not talking about Bama and LSU heck both Ol Pee and MisState had some good looking players. We need some SERIOUS upgrades on both OL and DL.

Even though our offense—and offensive line—has been dysfunctional this year, I think it can do enough. No matter what AA does, our running game needs to be solid. And it will set up play action passing.

Our defense has to take a big step. Against the Ags, giving up those big plays killed us. We saw big pass completions last Saturday too. We gotta tighten up.

Most of your modern day air raid offenses are basically west coast offense.

They are actually versions of the West Coast offense. Bill Walsh developed the West Coast offense. It's designed around short to intermediate passing.

I'm just suggesting an offensive scheme that is designed to get the ball out of the QB's hands as quickly as possible and into the hands of our playmakers.

If you are talking more balanced based of the NMSU game, I'd take another look.  Many of the throws Allen made were all due to the weaker defensive front of NMSU that allowed him to take the 5 - 6 seconds he usually needs to throw the ball.  He won't get that luxury any more this year.  The defenses are too quick.

Arkansas was able to get to the edges, which is what Coach B. has been trying to do since game one with these backs, but has been unable to do very often.  Chalk this up to a slower NMSU defense as well.  That will not happen against SEC competition.

I won't believe we have turned the corner concerning offensive balance until we line up against SEC competition and show the balance we had against NMSU.  I think Sunbelt is about our speed right now.   My opinion of course.

Arkansas may be favored to win by two to three points.  After watching some of the game between A&M and South Carolina, it looks like their passing game can be a strength which matches well for them.  The Carolina defense appears a little stronger overall.  However, Arkansas appears to have a more balanced offense with a better ground game.  If Arkansas can pressure Bentley and contain the receivers (S. Carolina is without their best receiver), a win is v. possible.  A&M sacked Bentley about 6 - 7 times.
What would be the best path to victory?

S. Carolina is not good in the RZ. Their sweet spot is scoring from 30 to 40 yards out. Take this away and it will help us win this game.

Arkansas needs to run the ball. The Hogs are averaging over 200 ypg rushing and SC is allowing over 200 ypg. Run the ball ball and run the clock. Most of the stats favor Arkansas. 

You are right: SC rushing defense ranked 78th / hogs Rushing O ranked 46th.

S. Carolina is not good in the RZ. Their sweet spot is scoring from 30 to 40 yards out. Take this away and it will help us win this game.
So, more really bend and try not to break?

I copy what you are saying but I would like to see us mix in some blitzes. Maybe some zone blitzes or something.

Talked with my Gamecock friend today.  He says that there defense is pretty good but tends to wear down in the second half because their offense can't sustain drives.  He laments the injuries in their o-line and the absence of a running game.  He says what really beat them against A&M was the running of Mond the QB.  So
Hayden in the Wildhog , Kelly in the steamboat,or J. Jones in the jet sweep along with David Williams pounding the rock in the red zone might get us a win.

I don't have much confidence because New Mex St got some big hits on Allen and they are much worse defensively. You can get pressure on a qb and not get the sack too.

Quit the 7 step drop and go to a 3 step. Their asking the linemen to hold these faster guys for 5 seconds and Allen holds the ball for 7 seconds. Establish a run game and quit being predictable on the play calling. And defense needs to be a lot more aggressive but Brett will not let them. Its against his philosophy.

Arkansas may be favored to win by two to three points.  After watching some of the game between A&M and South Carolina, it looks like their passing game can be a strength which matches well for them.  The Carolina defense appears a little stronger overall.  However, Arkansas appears to have a more balanced offense with a better ground game.  If Arkansas can pressure Bentley and contain the receivers (S. Carolina is without their best receiver), a win is v. possible.  A&M sacked Bentley about 6 - 7 times.
What would be the best path to victory?

We haven 't gotten quarterback pressure so far- what makes you think that will change? Arkansas, as I have said before, will need Allen and the wide receivers to play at their optimum in order to win. The defense is what it is- unreliable. The running game only works if the passing game is working, without the pressure on the back seven of a passing threat they will shut down the running attack. Arkansas needs Allen, Nance, Jones and Stewart (and O'Grady) to be effective and score points in order to win.

redneckfriend has the game figured out except.  In the end, the team that refuses to be denied and fire in their belly will win.  Attitude, attitude, attitude and mental toughness and more mental toughness and then about the same talent as the competition will win.  And I will say what the all knowers say, BOOK IT.
