What ever happened to the fade throw in the end zone?
We have some serious height at receiver

Sullivan is 6'6
Drake Davis is 6'4
Dee Anderson is 6'6

Just throw it up there and let them get under it?

Was watching YouTube of games from years ago. The slant pattern was executed to perfection by the Tigers back in the day. Bert Jones pulling the trigger at QB didn't hurt the cause.

I don't think it works as well in the P.A run for your life system

Getting closer to the redzone would help.

I'm not 100% sure Etling can make that throw easily

re: What ever happened to the fade throw in the end zone?
Whenever we get in the red zone, our coaching staff has a tendency to run the ball. I saw Canada do shovel passes in the red zone against Clemson last year.

Maybe they have a lack of confidence in Etling to aim it right. Or a lack of confidence in our receivers to win the jump ball battle. Maybe Canada doesn't like that play. Who knows.

Its not a hard throw I don't think. If you miss, miss high. Just give our boys the only chance to get it.

Not many people in the game of football can go get it as high as a Drake Davis. Dude has serious hops on a 6'4" frame and longer wing span.

Were we not 3 for 3 with 3 TDs in the red zone against Syracuse? Now we don't like the way we're scoring TDs there?

It drives me crazy that we don't run quick slants, fades, etc. They're normal football plays, which are effective, yet we can't do them.

I have been wondering this all along. Even with all the nonsense about them potentially not knowing the whole playbook. Ain't that hard to run this route. We should be throwing up some 50/50 balls for these guys. They are bigger and stronger than any DB and can just go up and get it. Doesn't even have to be fades in the end zone. Can use this strategy most places on the field. They have shown that they aren't afraid to go over the middle. Need to use them much more and stop trying to rely on guys like Gage

re: What ever happened to the fade throw in the end zone?
I think it all stems back to the coaches being paranoid about turning the ball over and Etling has said as much how they want to protect the QB.

Fades are a high risk high reward throw if you under throw it at all. They're fine with go routes but when you give that chance for the DB to really make a play on a fade in the endzone they're scared to death it'll take points off the board. You really have to have the utmost trust of your receiver if the ball is underthrown to make sure the DB doesnt catch it. My guess is they have no faith in the wide receivers, because they refuse to even go 4 wide with them.

That makes sense. They always say if a ball is underthrown your wideout has to turn into a DB and make sure it's not picked off.. not sure if our guys are at that level. But I have wondered why we haven't tried more slants. That's a good way to overcome our poor OL play and to soften up the defense.

Quick slants require pinpoint accuracy to be successful. You last saw that with Mett

Saw him badly mistime a jump against cuse that should have been a catch. He almost dropped the TD too
