    Tampa (Fla.) Berkeley Prep three-star quarterback Brad Mayes committed to Lehigh on Wednesday.Press Release

    Mayes also had offers from Akron, FIU, and UMass
    in Jr year. Numerous other BCS teams expressed interest as well as Ivy’s and Patriot League prior to his early commit. Chose Lehigh because it resembled his HS,Berkley Prep.
    He played in Blue Gray Game etc. Check his Bio on team roster.

    1) I overheard a defensive players saying that Yale knew our defense better than we did. They knew who was blitzing and how to block it. They pointed it out before each play started.

    That by definition means our scheme is badly in need of an overhaul.

    2) LH doesn’t have an enforcer on Defense. Our opponents are too comfortable because they are only getting twirled down and placed on the ground! #5 had a good tackle but then he was the one that stayed on the ground. I pray he’s ok.

    3) Seems like the offensive starters are complacent. I think every week should be an open competition for playing time. That does not seem to be the case at LH.

    RH does LH have any hitters on the roster?

    TrueBlue ALL the starters are complacent. Doesnt matter how many times they mess up, they arent afraid of losing their jobs, just like the coaches. The D shouldve been overhauled after last yr. Was SURPRISED they replaced Soccarras with Kelsey after his 2 drops that couldve been scores.

    Coen did something similar with another receiver last week vs. Princeton, so… which is it? Kids are getting benched for not stepping up or starters are complacent? Can’t be both.

    I know I’m dreaming here, but how much do you want to bet that if we rehired Dave Checcini as OC, he would look around, send Shafnisky to the bench (ala JB Clark in 2010) and rework the offense around a real QB like Mayes?

    Disarray is everywhere; an offensive coordinator who is is clueless as the guy who preceded Checcini, a third straight year of “no defense”. Note, I did not say “poor defense”, or “lousy” defense…a 450 yards a game, 40+ points a game defense…DB’s who seem lost…allowing a team’s second team RB to gain 200 + yards…an offense that is as imaginative as a junior high team…special teams that are less than special…never any adjustments at halftime…

    I see Andy Coen as Frank Tavani west. Nice guy and all, but when he is not surrounded by great coaches, he is an abysmal failure. Andy is 26-32 without Checcini… Is anyone else aware? Joe Sterrett? Please tell us Andy’s is still here because it is the final year of a contract and that you will move forward without him.

    LFN its the latter. The coaches dont make changes where needed….THE DEFENSE! Coen cares about the O. Thats why they play alot of youth on the O. Did it last yr as well. Our Dbs, especially the cbs are laughable. Hated to see #1 get hurt, was glad #25 got a chance and thought he played well. I like #31 as well. #90 needs to play DT. Put the speed rushers on outside! We need to get out of the 3 lineman. Base D should be 4 lineman

    Hardest hitter. La
    Lambert by far. Caslow,Harvey
    Little doubt that opponents know our O and tendencies. Not to hard to sort thru 1 set and a half dozen plays.
    D
    A dilemma sceme wise.3-3-5 is geared to be aggressive with varied blitzes,create pressure and TOs. At the same time,staff wants to stop big plays. Not mutually exclusive but not easy to do. Sutyak got his 2ndary to play aggressively at Yale. Unfortunately DL blown away. Botts calls a very conservative game focusing on big plays. Didn’t work last year,not working this. His blitz package is a wideside CB blitz,which Roberts read every time. He has to seel out on scheme,if not agree with LG go to 4 down LM. TC GP at DT,Johnson and Stubbs at DE.
    A lot of overreacting so far. Much of the anger well deserved.
    Ovdr the years LU has been outmanndd numerous times. Our successful coaches have acceptdd the fact and schemed around it Folmar does not. His idea is to run same plays and rely on individual talent to win the day. Well,abundantly clear that was not true vs JMU or Yale. He has no plan B. No adjustments.
    Context is important here. Our Ls to unddfeated teams with more talent and experience. Not to excuse our performance by staff or players.
    Injuries have hurt on D but we weren’t good bfore them.
    Dont expect much to change by Bison,except hopefully more consistency.
    Andy has to step back and question the games called by OC and DC. He has to address that and correct it.

    I’m not taking sides on Mayes vs. Shaf, but keep in mind Mayes’ school played other tiny schools.

    I don’t want to say tiny schools don’t produce elite athletes — they do (didn’t Stambaugh go to tiny school?)– but holyloch61 may not be all that off base.

    You’re right Sunday, Stambaugh was the product of a school maybe half the size of Berkeley Prep.

    61, Brag is from a small school and many said he was not much………..before you saw him play. Mayes was a 3star and had great numbers. Stars are not given because of your team, they are usually assigned to kids as they do camps and after film is evaluated. I think Marco has a point. Clark won the mvp of the Laffy game and was king of the hill….until a brighter football mind had other ideas of winning rings and moving forward. 7 wins and 12 loses/ 26tds and 22 ints are not the future.

    [quote=22337]I agree everyone has great points but whats being left out is the defense coordinator leaves the same 11 kids on the field the whole game. Where they do that at??? Again,,,, no packages for 3rd and long 2nd and short no packages at all.. it’s pathetic… 3-3-5 the whole game. Yale 3 WRs majority of the game with a H-Back why we needed 5 DBs on the field. 4 down lineman would have slowed up the run. The defense we play allows the Guards to get to our undersized LBs..

    Coaching change is needed PERIOD

    [/quote]

    They rotate various DL throughout the game. The LBs and DBs are very thin right now. There is not much to substitute with

    So much hyperbole,but lets get the facts correct. Berkely is a Class 3 of 6 in Fla. School may be small level of competition is not.
    Players are rotated on D on all levels. Apparently,a lot of bodies not much depth.
    The performance of the DC and OC are ,I concur, ripe for hyperbolic censure :)

    I dunno, Nelson Agholor was an OK athlete that came from a Class 3 school in Florida.
