no they should have opened up the playbook a little more for him, i wouldn't say Percy made Tebow..Tebow handled his business against Bama last season w/o him, it's just they need to let him throw more
Yeah, the real problem is really the offensive coordinating. Missing Percy and Murphy is a big deal, and I'd say that accounts for a decent amount of lost production, but a ton of it goes on the coordinating. Going from 51 points last year to 13 this year is a joke.
Here's what I think about the situation. Meyer is a big 10, super conservative, grind out wins any way kind of dude. But he's had Mullen with him at every step of the way to counter Meyer's conservative bulls**t with some creative play-calling and a more aggressive offense. Mullen was man enough to run what he wanted and tell Urban to go f**k off, and that's why we ran trains on everyone last year. If it was up to Meyer, we'd go into an ultra conservative, dive-only offense whenever we got a 10 point lead, because he thinks he's so smart with his "we're just gonna win the game" strategy.
But now Mullen is having pretty good offensive success at MSU, and now we got this chump Steve Addazio. It's so painfully obvious that Addazio is a puppet for Urban Meyer. He's basically just running whatever conservative bulls**t that Meyer wants him to run. As long as our defense is as good as it is out there, we're never gonna see the offense play like last year. Of course it's much harder without Percy Harvin in there, but like you said, and I've been saying this too, Look at the Bama game from last year. We threw the ball all over the place on a great Bama defense. Tebow had 30+ passing attempts. Why can't we do that this year???? It's this pus*y a.ss Meyer/Addazio bulls**t. I really miss Mullen.
