It's The Playcalling Stupid!

I post this in the vain hope that someone will poke their head into Tedford's cocoon long enough to tell him to run the damn ball, and possibly save his job. We are on track to be more pass heavy than any team in his tenure when you adjust the statistics so that sacks count as passing plays and affect passing yardage (as they should) rather than affecting rushing yardage.

I'd like Tedford to save himself by not losing another game all season, and winning in dominant fashion to give hope for improvement, but without this advice he has no chance. Some will call this an oversimplification, but those people overthink things.

And the tailbacks will get tired enough that he will finally play Bigelow. I don't care if the opposition knows we are running. It didn't help Ohio State stop him. Plus we should be running 57% of the time like we did in 2004-5. What's that Cal fan, you say you liked those seasons?

Me too!

Yes, we had Aaron Rodgers and his 66% completion percentage, but we still ran way more than we passed. In 2012 we average 4.74 yards per pass attempt and 6.67 yards per rush attempt adjusted for sacks. Yet we pass 54.52% and rush 45.58% of the time. The worst ratio in the Tedford era (worst meaning fewest rushes and fewest wins).

We also have more sacks than most entire seasons, and have lost more yardage than any season but one from sacks, but all these facts are related and they all say the same thing, "Run the damn ball!".

That is all.
