The #1 Key to Jones' success at UT

will begin with his willingness to slow down his offense

Here is why

If any of you have ever did Crossfit or did the Murph, you know what an intense physical and mental workout those can be. Multiple reps with minimal to no rest in between reps. Its designed to build strength as well as stamina. You will also know that these workouts are usually designed for under 30 minutes. Its because the body can only maintain such physical demands on it for short times without a period of rest for the body to repair itself. Without this, the body can't repair what it has broke down, i.e muscles.

This leads to this comparison. Jones' offense is designed to run at a high tempo. They snap the ball within 15 seconds of ref setting the ball. Sure, this can play havoc on an opposing defense(which is what its designed for) but it can also play havoc on your own team. When you run a HUNH, you must maintain some sort of drive. If you do not and you go 3 and out you put your defense on the field after only about 1 minute of rest

So imagine playing a great ball control offense. One that eats up 3 to 4 minutes of clock, even on a drive they don't score on. That is 3 to 4 minutes that your defense is pounding away at another player, digging, scrapping, and falling on top of each other. That's a lot of abuse a body takes on one 5 minute drive.

Now imagine, you get to the sideline and your HUNH offense goes 3 and out and you get 1 minutes rest. Back on the field, this time the offense opposing offense runs a longer, more punishing drive.

After a game of this, the body gets worn. Your defense gets tired and the body begins to break down. This means more chances of injury

Even if a HUNH offense scores, its usually fast and still doesn't give your defense the advantage later in games

This is a reason most HUNH offenses give up tons of points on the defense. Their defenses are worn down from being on the field for so long. Even if you are in top shape, a body can only take so much before it has to rest.

People blame Strength coaches for most of the injury issues, but the Offensive Scheme has a much to do with those injuries. Its the reason we saw a majority of our injuries on defense.

Jones' would be wise to slow down the tempo, especially against teams that are more physical. Just like they say, the longer your offense is on the field, the less likely their offense has a chance to score. Plus, it allows your defense to be fresh in the later stages of the game when and if the game is on the line and demands the defense to make a stop

Control the ball and control the clock is a fundamental strategy to a good football team

Another good idea is him learning how to not be one of the worst gameday coaches in the Power Five.

IMO, the #1 key is for Butch just to get out of his own way and let his assistants do their job.

Is your opinion based of inside info or just what we all see on TV?

3 and out by our offense hurts our defense. Not getting stops on 3rd down hurts too.

Dome sound like CBJ talking about complementary football.

The performance of the O-Line going forward will make, or break, CBJ.

Is it lack of talent, bad coaching, or scheme?

Better hope it was just bad coaching.

Predictable play calling seems to be our worst enemy. Too many times it looked like they knew what was coming and jumped the play. When we would throw on 1st down it caught them off guard.

We all knew.

Hurd up the gut, starting from a dead standstill, 2 seconds after the snap, from 9 yards deep in the backfield.

Injury was biggest factor in oline play last year. Hall hurt most of season and missed 7 games. Thomas playing on one leg and then missing time. Our best lineman, Wiesman, missed 3 games. Kendrick missed most of AL game and SC game. Jones hurt.
A healthy line would have resulted in two more wins last year IMO. I believe we would have beaten Vandy and SC if Kendrick, Robertson, Thomas, Wiesman, and Hall had been able to play together healthy in those games.

Can't argue w/ the theory...there are times for the HUNH and times to slow it down. Agree , for the most part, they should try to control the clock and give the D some rest.
