Newsflash, Coach -- even the worst SEC school has bigger, stronger, and faster players than you do. You cannot simply match up with them and go head to head, you have to out scheme them.
The more I see of Butch Jones, the more I realize that he's absolutely not the answer for UC.
4th and short is a well known weakness of the spread. A spread team probably does need to throw on those downs but that's not generally what you want to see. Hopefully Jones will realize that he has a spread team and coach accordingly in the future
Actually, I thought UC looked pretty good and I think they'll do well in Big East competition. They were a step slow vs UT and the Vols offense was well coached and has a QB with a rocket arm, yet the UC defenders were just a step short. This Vos team is better than we've seen in many years. As the year goes on, UC's loss will not look so bad
