We’ll be making a simple post from the weekly press availability by Coach Wilcox, coaches, and players of their press conferences. Also, highlighting any quotes, moments, points that are of interest to the fans. Notes DL Stanley McKenzie will be out for the remainder of the season (Lower Body Injury).
Honestly the roster isnt that different from 2019. It just goes to show how the main takers and God like linebacker play from Weaver boosted everyone else. The DL has been horrendous, even Cam Goode was struggling and no we have a lack of NG again with Mckenzie down and Maldonado regressing. Man the DL is brutal, and that doesnt even count Bequette who has just been around.
Clearly we can see Tatersall even with the 2019 seasoning isnt up to par, and frankly doesnt help the interpretation of the development of players. Why the coaches moved Elijah Hicks to safety I'll never know and how Chigi Anusiem turned into a bench warmer after almost getting 3 INT's by himself in the Redbox Bowl. Just a lot of confusion with this roster, and thats not even counting the offense, who either runs for 10 yards, passes for 50 yards, gets pressured every other play, or forgets that downfield passing exists as issues that occur weekly.
I also think that Deng is done for the season.
Thanks for this.
A comment for the WFC writers that attend and presumably can ask questions during the presser (not sure I've heard anyone here mentioned during a presser). Can someone ask meaningful questions? For example when asked what happened to the OL, coach responded "we didn't block". No shit, but why didn't you block? Was the OL calling the wrong blocking scheme? Did they not know what to call? And why weren't half time or in game adjustments made to handle Wazzu's DL? Were the adjustments not available, no coaching for Wazzu's scheme? Also, ask if the competition is open at QB and at what point in the season would the staff "consider" using another QB be it Millner or other?
OK @Rob Hwang here's a possible question: "At times it benefits a player to sit out a series or two to allow a different perspective of the game, has the staff considered using that with CG?"
Does he plan on being very active in the transfer portal this year? Especially if we start to lose a lot of recruits due to the lack of on the field success?
Winning games, that would be a welcome change. I hope they can figure it out.
