Title: Kurt Anderson on Brian Wallace
Post by: WilsonHog on October 03, 2017, 08:43:11 pm
Per Jimmy Carter’s article on WholeHogSports:

“He’s having some good practices,” Anderson said. “There are some mental mistakes that are hindering him from being in there. It has nothing to do with his ability. He’s got great ability. He’s made unbelievable strides and he’s had some good practices over the last few weeks, but there’s a mental error here or there, especially late in the week on a Thursday or Friday practice, that as a coach prevents you from saying here’s a guy I trust in a critical situation that is going to make sure we’re doing things the right way.”

Wallace really must not be very good.  We essentially don't have an OT's starting on the OL, and wallace still can't crack it..

If it's mental, then it's all about reps, reps and reps until he gets it. Without moving up the 2-deep he will get less reps than if he were starting.

I'm not assuming that at all.  I think he's saying Wallace STILL isn't capable of cracking the starting line up, which is really saying something considering the play of the OL over the last year and a half or so.

BTW, coaches feed the fans BS all the time.  BS = lying.  I figured you knew.

Is there any chance the OL scheme and coaching doesn't fit the guys on the OL?

I mean you can bend the player to the scheme and get what you get or maybe bend the coaching and scheme to the player and try to make them more successful

I don't think you need to be a scientific rocket to play Tackle. This is his third year with Enos. Surely the playbook has not changed every year. Something else is wrong. Just listened to Anderson's PC. Not impressed.

Post by: lakecityhog on October 03, 2017, 09:30:02 pm
Here is the part that bothers me, we have guys making mental and physical errors in games, errors that have led to sacks and failed plays. I know that we will hear how our O'Line has graded out consistently well, but we have seen with our own eyes the issues that we have. 7 plays from inside the 5 yard line to score on NMSU as well as several other short yardage failures.

This same player started 10 games last year and is nothing but a year older and a year stronger. What has happened to that player? Did he just forget how he played last year?

We are going into the 6th week of the season (bye week) and still experimenting with O'Line combinations? Really?? Sorry guys it is just too hard for me to find fault in our players when we are facing situations like this. Now, if we were trying to shuffle people due to injury I could buy that.

How many D1 teams go into the 2nd week of the season with their O'Line in a state of flux? Much less still experimenting in week # 6. We waited until week 5 to move Gibson BACK to his natural position, a position that he played really well last year and Saturday we are going to start the game with him moved out to tackle AGAIN!

I really hate to come off negatively, but this is just the way that I feel. I honestly feel like we are not fielding our best combination of O'Linemen and it affects the way that we play, the way that we call plays and the confidence of the team.

To me it's pretty obvious. If Wallace has the ability why not simplify his reads so he can help the line?  Maybe they've simplified as much as they can and have to go with the guys that can learn it? It's baffling that we don't have a single true tackle that can see the field.

The Bills Oline wasn't bad when he was there.

IMO Kurt Anderson's NFL technical blocking is too much for our college o-lineman. Focus too much on hitting someone just right which leads to small margin for error, instead of just making sure you hit them.

Just not a good idea in general to hire an OL Coach from the NFL to coach OL at the collegiate level.

There is a tendency to try to teach the technical NFL OL garbage, but that makes things complicated for collegiate offensive linemen and makes collegiate offensive linemen think too much.

This makes no sense.  This guy was a multi game starter last year.  I have a hard time believing a college student that's been in the program 3-4 years can't learn the blocking schemes.  There's no way he's a worse pass blocker than what we've got.  At minimum he should be in there on obvious passing situations.

The Anderson hire may have been the biggest head scratcher of the CBB era. You hire a guy with almost no OL position coaching experience to replace one of the best.

CBB has had some real dud hires as position coaches.

That seems to be a recurring theme arnd RRS.  Every coach that doesn't show great production comes out with the scheme is too difficult and needs to be dumbed down.  At what point do they start with plays 11 guys on hogville could run and then work their way up to junior high, then high school plays, etc.

When D-line runs through R side OL like a jailbreak any time they run a simple stunt, gotta fix that.

AA getting his a.ss handed to him, holding ball too long or not. Any OL apologists want a piece of that?

this is the kind of coach BS that would make it better if they would  just shut up and coach.............Brian Wallace was a starter last year and is MAKING GREAT STRIDES but cant start over a grey shirt freshman and a walk on  playing tackle
for the first time..........that makes no sense, so again just shut up.

also, cant start because late in the week he makes a mental error here or there............guess what on
Saturday you have starters making errors in every quarter......you have maybe the worst line in the SEC so it doesn't take a perfect  player to beat out the guys you have starting.

I am not saying Wallace should be starting but I am saying just shut up and stop with the lame explanations as to why he isn't, obviously he is worse than terrible and isn't making strides from last year when he was a starter , cause if he was he would be starting now on this line,  so just shut up and coach him.

Been saying this the whole time. Basically put him at a further disadvantage of developing.

Also I felt the same way about Brandon Martin. If he ever gets healthy he is so buried on the depth chart now he will never get to rise due to limited practice reps.

This staff is awesome at mismanagement of thier roster.

Gibson played some tackle his sophomore? year, I remember Skipper or Kirkland getting hurt and he went in for a series. There's a reason they had the speaker in the helmet for Wallace in the fall practices, it wasn't to listen to music. Now, does he deserve a chance, I think so, but I don't watch the practices.

Sorry but im gonna go ahead and call B.S on this. We watched as Froholdt got his lunch ate play after play last season but never got pulled. He made mistake after mistake but they allowed him to stay on the field. We've seen more of the same this season with Clary and at times with Ramirez. Why isn't Wallace getting the same opportunity? What is the REAL reason he isn't getting on the field? Is it off the field issues or something not football related? I hate to say it, but at this point it is starting to look like the coaches are playing favorites

Umm.....really? Does he not watch game film because nearly every OLineman has a mental mistake here and there. I mean it literally happens nearly every down. If he's not playing because he has a mental error here or there, then what makes him different than the guys playing right now?

You want a public berating?  They are trying to find an OL that can work.  Sounds like he understands that Clary isn't the answer at this time.

The media is asking specific questions about Wallace. Sounded to me like he was being overly cautious in his comments and not throwing Wallace under the bus. Sounds like Wallace doesn't have it upstairs and that's why he isn't playing.
So out of all the best offensive linemen that came out that year we just so happened to get the one that doesn't have it upstairs? Come on man. Stop drinking the Kool-Aid.

I want someone to call these things out. If you say Wallace isn't playing bc he makes a mental mistake here and there, then you play a freshman and say well he just can't handle a full game. Then what the heck is the difference? Wallace deserves a chance, no way you continue to play Froholdt like we did last year when he was making mental mistake nearly every snap and then say this guy is practicing well but he makes a mistake every thursday or friday that keeps us from being okay with playing him.......really? What about the three or four other days where apparently he is impressing you......

Big difference between dominating over-matched HS competition in a simple "block the guy in front of you" HS offense and understanding the concepts of a complex pro scheme offense and being able to apply those concepts in the heat of the game with a shifting, stunting defense. When was he recruited? By whom? For which offense?

Not saying this is the problem, just saying that HS dominance doesn't always project to college.

This thread is full of comedy.

Did any of guys actually play football ? Maybe, just maybe BW doesn't want to be the star player that you guys want him to be. Did you not ever play with somebody that just didn't have the drive inside them to live up to their potential ? Maybe he is one of those guys, likes being on the team, does just enough to get by, and has tremendous natural ability but really doesn't care enough to get better. Or anyone of a hundred other possibilities.

You guys can manage a roster full of players better without going to a single practice, and now you know how to handle coaching interviews, without ever having done that. Haha

You should all give yourselves a huge raise.

Sorry but im gonna go ahead and call B.S on this. We watched as Froholdt got his lunch ate play after play last season but never got pulled. He made mistake after mistake but they allowed him to stay on the field. We've seen more of the same this season with Clary and at times with Ramirez. Why isn't Wallace getting the same opportunity? What is the REAL reason he isn't getting on the field? Is it off the field issues or something not football related? I hate to say it, but at this point it is starting to look like the coaches are playing favorites

These experts we have could fix any of that, they know what it takes every time, just need more reps, first team reps, game reps, they have it all figured out. Funny you mention the yips.

I just can’t shake the suspicion that Brian’s mistakes are held against him much more than other player’s mistakes are held against them because Coach(es) believe that Brian, because he is an upperclassmen in program for this long, should not be making those mistakes.

The problem is that if you choose to play a less talented player to punish a better player for making mistakes and that choice becomes a notable factor in two important losses (i.e. cutting your nose off to spite your face) you have kind of painted yourself into a corner haven’t you?

Here is the part that bothers me, we have guys making mental and physical errors in games, errors that have led to sacks and failed plays. I know that we will hear how our O'Line has graded out consistently well, but we have seen with our own eyes the issues that we have. 7 plays from inside the 5 yard line to score on NMSU as well as several other short yardage failures.

This same player started 10 games last year and is nothing but a year older and a year stronger. What has happened to that player? Did he just forget how he played last year?

We are going into the 6th week of the season (bye week) and still experimenting with O'Line combinations? Really?? Sorry guys it is just too hard for me to find fault in our players when we are facing situations like this. Now, if we were trying to shuffle people due to injury I could buy that.

How many D1 teams go into the 2nd week of the season with their O'Line in a state of flux? Much less still experimenting in week # 6. We waited until week 5 to move Gibson BACK to his natural position, a position that he played really well last year and Saturday we are going to start the game with him moved out to tackle AGAIN!

I really hate to come off negatively, but this is just the way that I feel. I honestly feel like we are not fielding our best combination of O'Linemen and it affects the way that we play, the way that we call plays and the confidence of the team.

yes.

i think this reveals the epitome of game preparation and results, unfortunately.

Well something is not right about the coaches statement and about how the OL is being developed. I know the grading system used shows these guys doing their job. ::)  But this OL is getting beat making mistakes and at the point of attack! Have yet shown they can handle faster players no matter what size. Also any kind of blitz and it's like Walmart on Black Friday everybody rushes in. Maybe more is and should be expected from Wallace because he's in year 3 but with all that is going wrong not sure how his mistakes equal a seat on the bench.

The Bills Oline wasn't bad when he was there.

IMO Kurt Anderson's NFL technical blocking is too much for our college o-lineman. Focus too much on hitting someone just right which leads to small margin for error, instead of just making sure you hit them.

Anderson wasn't the OL Coach. He carried clipboards and charted plays.  Also when you have Richie Incognito you're not doing a lot of real coaching. Richie runs the show and he keeps the guys in line and focused or else.

First I never said he was the Oline coach. However, he was the Oline for like 6 games or so. When the real coach was suspended. As far as Incognito's coaching see Miami.

Second I only talked about his time with the Bills because some poster wanted to rewrite history.

Umm.....really? Does he not watch game film because nearly every OLineman has a mental mistake here and there. I mean it literally happens nearly every down. If he's not playing because he has a mental error here or there, then what makes him different than the guys playing right now?
makes me think he is playing favorites, or not playing his not favorites or something to that effect.

Bielema not retaining Steve Caldwell was probably a bigger mistake than hiring Kurt "garbage NFL OL technique" Anderson.

Caldwell recruited and landed Trey Flowers and Darius Philon.

The key is to continue to get Allen time to skip around on the routes. Offensive line coach Kurt Anderson said the key might be to continue to play more than his starting five.
“I think it is,” he said. “I think playing six or seven might be the right approach. We've learned that what we need to compete in the SEC is to be fresh up front in the fourth quarter. We might make that our advantage.”
One of the assets is versatility in Johnny Gibson. He starts at right tackle, but has slid over to right guard to give true freshman Ty Clary some rest.
“I don't see that as unusual,” Anderson said. “Johnny cross trained there last year. He even has played on the left side. I think he's ambidextrous.”
Some have suggested that's a difficult transition, but Anderson doesn't see it that way.
“I don't think the terminology between guard and tackle is that different,” Anderson said. “It's not like one position is Mandarin Chinese and the other is French. It's the same language.
“I've always thought you need to cross train. We do that in the normal course of practice. I did that in the NFL.”
Was New Mexico State was the best game for the O-line?
“I'm not sure I'd say that,” he said. “I thought we did well in a lot of areas against Texas A&M. We aren't perfect, but we definitely have made some progress. I think you are probably doing a lot of good things if you are leading the SEC in third down conversions.”

The best I have seen our OL play this year is the 4th quarter against TA$M. That was after CBB had a face to face talk to the OL at the end of the 3rd quarter. I simply don’t understand why CBB doesn’t stay more involved directly with the players and coaches during the games. If the assistants don’t like that then they need to do a better job.

I don’t think it’s simply a coincidence that Saban and Kirby Smart are the only coaches remaining undefeated in the SEC. These two coaches are constantly coaching during the games and talking directly to their assistants and players. It’s a team effort, meaning all coaches and players interact during the game.   

Another point, Saban’s teams never seem to fall off in any aspect even though he also has turnovers in staff. Could in be that Saban also coaches up his staff when he sees their weaknesses?  I know someone will come on here and say but he has 4 and 5 star players. That’s true but those players have to be coached and coached well to perform at that level.

I think there is more to it than the coaches being more strict in evaluating Wallace's performance.

He played last year and is in the same system so it is not as if he is new to the scheme. He has experience and familiarity that Clary doesn't have yet Clary starts before hum . Something doesn't add up.

Personally, I wonder if Wallace said or did something that rubbed the coaches the wrong way and that is why they don't play him. If anything, the "mental mistakes" are half-truths used as the full truth. Small screw ups are used as excuse to bench him while the real reason is that they may not like him as much as other players.

Regardless,  I think there is more to the story.

Years do matter in that the staff has had that amount of time to recruit quality players, build depth, and develop average players into good upper class players. Who you have on campus is true and they have had 4 recruiting years to have players on campus better than a walk on OL player.  Furthermore, the mistakes the OL made last year can continued throughout the year and still continue.  Football isn't too complicated at its roots and fundamental mistakes that continue is a coaching issue and not a talent issue. KA is directly coaching that position.

The OL has not played as poorly though as I see written on here. The opponents are sending 5 and 6 players at times and the QB holds the ball waiting for a receiver to be open. The QB has no confidence in himself or his teammates and shows the emotion on the field of spoiled 7th grader.

Also sometimes not too bright, he stays with a slide protection and a naked bootleg when a LB shows blitz on the boot side. Blitzing LBs haven't been chasing RBs from behind the play all day, you can bootleg a DE, not a LB that has rarely blitzed. They have eyes for the QB mostly and he almost got himself killed on that one.

What I get from Gibson is that coaches can put him in and he won't make any glaring mental errors and play to his limits physically. That's the greatest thing you can ever ask of a walk-on.

Whether people agree with Wallace starting or not starting to this point, I bet most people can agree that Wallace has probably pushed himself harder in practice over the last couple months after losing his starting job that at any other point during his time here.  I would like to think him losing his job will make him a much better player when he does come back and stops having the mental errors, hopefully that happens sooner than later though.

The Anderson hire may have been the biggest head scratcher of the CBB era. You hire a guy with almost no OL position coaching experience to replace one of the best.

CBB has had some real dud hires as position coaches.

One of the reasons CBB came here was so he would have money to pay assistant coaches.

They keep leaving.

Question for you social media gurus. Is BW's family going after Anderson.  Heard mention of this on Sports Talk.
Where did you hear this? I listen to sports talk in little rock everyday from the moment it comes on to the moment it goes off and I haven't heard ANYTHING like this. Would love to hear more details!

One of the reasons CBB came here was so he would have money to pay assistant coaches.

They keep leaving.

What's the common thread?

CBB
He was having coaches leave for monetary reasons at Wiscy.  He is not having that same issue here.  They don't appear to be leaving at the same rate that they were in Wiscy.

I just can’t shake the suspicion that Brian’s mistakes are held against him much more than other player’s mistakes are held against them because Coach(es) believe that Brian, because he is an upperclassmen in program for this long, should not be making those mistakes.

The problem is that if you choose to play a less talented player to punish a better player for making mistakes and that choice becomes a notable factor in two important losses (i.e. cutting your nose off to spite your face) you have kind of painted yourself into a corner haven’t you?

I've been told there are, ah, favorites and non-favorites - which was defined as solid starters and everyone else, and the 2 groups are treated differently.  Supposedly came from a former, but recent starter who has graduated.  Wasn't there so didn't personally hear what was said.  Take it however you wish.

CBB
He wanted more money to keep assistants that he liked from making lateral moves for the reason of more money.

Thomas and Singleton left for NFL teams.
Partridge left for a head coaching job.
Johnson, Segrest, Smith, and Chaney were all ousted.
Pittman followed Chaney, that always seemed to be a package deal.
Shannon left to be co-DC in his native Florida.
Ash left to be the co-DC for Ohio State and actually took a pay cut to get the hell out of here.
Might be missing a couple.

None of the coaches above fit the criteria for making lateral moves for the reason of money like they were doing at Wisconsin.

Now maybe when Bielema said "I left Wisconsin because I couldn't pay assistant coaches enough to stay" he was giving a half-assed excuse instead of saying "I wanted to get out of Alvarez' shadow" but the point still stands.

Pittman is the only one that Bielema was openly upset about losing. It got a little ugly before it was all said and done. Bielema stated that replacing pittman would be easy, firing Anderson would be admitting that he was wrong.

Florida State's offensive line has given up more sacks then we have.

ADD:  Stats -

Florida State has allowed up 12 sacks in 3 games (4 sacks per game)  Only 3 of those were by Alabama.  They gave up 5 sacks to Wake Forest

Arkansas has allowed 11 sacks in 4 games (2.75 sacks per game)

AND believe it or not Florida State actually gave up more sacks then we did last season.

I hear you man. they are going to get A.Allen killed if they don't get 66 and 76,out of there.Austin has not played as well this year in my opinion. but i think it's because he has been hit so much that he is looking at the rush.and who could blame him.Anderson OL is going to get this young man hurt if they don't get a lot better.

We haven't had a good tackle since Brey Cook.

Skipper was OK but got beat often.  No reason for a 6'10" tackle to let anyone get into his chest.

I been watching football over 50 years now. i don't have to be a coach to know a bad OL when i see it.my eyes are not lying to me when i see 66 and 76,being throw around and missing blocks.this OL is going to get Austin killed.and the question from some fans like myself is why is he a back up? based on what we are seeing in games,why is Wallace a back up?

I trust Treys observations. He calls a lot of stuff before it happens. Sosa being moved to starting line last year, he questioned Hedlund being ahead of mcfain before he became starter, etc. The guy has a good eye and knows what he's talking about

I'm not arguing that our offensive line is good.  It's not.  I'm informing/educating you that Florida State's offensive line is not good either.  They were bad last season and they look to be just as bad - if not worse- this season.  Without Deondre Francois' ability to make plays - they will struggle.

Sorry but im gonna go ahead and call B.S on this. We watched as Froholdt got his lunch ate play after play last season but never got pulled. He made mistake after mistake but they allowed him to stay on the field. We've seen more of the same this season with Clary and at times with Ramirez. Why isn't Wallace getting the same opportunity? What is the REAL reason he isn't getting on the field? Is it off the field issues or something not football related? I hate to say it, but at this point it is starting to look like the coaches are playing favorites
