just imagine if the team had practised throwing the ball for 4 weeks before the BCSNCG
yes, I'm sure, not one time in the 4 weeks before they game, they didn't practice a single pass.
I mean it couldn't have hurt in any way. Maybe we would have even moved the ball some and given the rest of the team some confidence instead of sticking with JJ and the horrible run and option plays not even crossing midfield
either you are trolling, not very bright or didn't watch the game. The called pass plays, the longest play of the night was a 19 yd pass. On that play Peterson was wide open down the middle of the field. That play was on 2nd down, on first they ran the same play, on the pass was incomplete.
It was a different game, played with many players on both sides that did not play in 1/9, under different circumstances. It is posible that in the time since that game Mettenberger has gotten better. He is after all a 21-22 y/old kid with limited expirience. To expect that he could have just come in, after not playing all year and beaten one of the best college defenses ever is just fantasy. But if that's what you want to believe, go ahead.
ETA: The ultimatel irony is, this week in Tuscaloosa, they are questioning their God/Coach for passing TOO MUCH. That's right, they would have beaten A&M if only their stubborn coach and incompent OC had tried to ram the ball down A&M's throat on the last drive.
