This is for all of the Run the Damn Ball folks......I'm tired of hearing Frog fans complain about needing to run the ball more. TCU has run the ball an unprecedented amount over the last 4 years and only once in those years, 2017, has it lead to actual wins. This year Gary got the exact "run heavy" offense he's always dreamed about,. Yup, what's been lost in all the ineptitude of this offense is GP got the offense he always wanted....... and it stinks....Would you be surprised to know that 1. TCU has ran the ball 56.5% of the time in 2020 (43.5% passing? So much for balance) 2. TCU is in the top 15 of FBS schools in run attempts per game 40+ 3. TCU on paper is actually running the ball better than anyone in the conference outside of Iowa St...Yah that includes Oklahoma...(TCU Sits 3rd in conference Run Yrds per Game and 2nd in Run Yards per Att). Some of you are going to try and make the point that we are only so imbalanced because we can't throw the ball....Well yah your absolutely right! So lets dive deeper. Why can't we throw the ball when the data shows your so effective on the ground? That effectiveness in the ground game should be opening up all kinds of passing right? Nope... there's a bigger problem that we all keep pretending isn't the problem.......Max.....TCU doesn't need to run the ball more...It needs to find a QB that can make the throws necessary to open up the offense. -But But,,,we have a crappy Offensive Line? Run game would indicate that its not as bad as people are making it out to be -But But..Max is running for his life on every pass play..If your OL is talented enough to be the second best rush offense in the league, even with teams selling out to stop the run, than its talented enough to be better in pass protection. Bottom Line is Max hasn't progressed this year as a passer. Defenses don't respect him at all. They man us up and put 6-7 in the box and Max can't hurt them. This team will not compete for a title until the can show a balanced run/pass game that can take what the defense is giving. Right now defenses are giving us the down field passing game and we aren't good enough to take it....We just keep RTDB.
