Franklin and Yurcich have been scheming Dotson out of the offense. They all but ignored him for the final 2.5 quarters against Iowa and he might as well have stayed on the sideline for most of the Illinois game — and ALL of the overtimes. Instead of getting the ball in the hands of your best player, putting the game in the hands of your inept backup QB (Iowa) a crippled QB, third string tight end, and “I fall down on contact” RB (Cain, Illinois) is a recipe for . . . Well, for two losses to inferior opponents. The one play that went to Dotson late in the game had him isolated on the left. He is the quickest player on the field, so do we run a slant? Of course not. Instead, we take “advantage” of his short stature and throw up a prayer fade (a recent staple of Franklin’s offenses). Barf inducing.Talk about a glass half full?
What exactly leads you to believe this? Hope?
The O$U offense is rolling. O$U will scheme Dotson out of the offense (assuming Cliff is even able to play). We have no running game.
It will be an AW to the tune where maybe Franklin will demonstrate some needed humility and grace.
