A lot of people seemed to have thought this year would be like Shockley taking over after Greene. The problem with that is that entering his senior year Shockley had already played in 26 games and it wasn't just mop up duty....not to mention he was a superior athlete.
Amen again Tyler. I counted at least 6 times where 10 defenders were inside of 7 yards on plays not 3rd or 4th and 1. He's a DGD, but Mason is not even executing game management now. I saw the lack of arm strength in the spring game and the Nebraska game. I'm not sure he's regressed at all. The opponents just have it figured out. I perceive a growing lack of patience in the bulldawg nation over many things. We need our staff to go with our best chance to grow and win a championship. With that performance against a young physically talented team we better be more ready to take risks on younger more physically talented players and get them experience in live game situations. (i.e. Ramsey, Park or Fauta). I'm not saying bench Mason; just have an active plan to phase a better talent in before it costs you a chance to win the conference.
Hutson Mason seems more like Joe Cox or Joe T III than he does Shockley. I think we ride Gurley as far as we can and hope Mason can make a play or two and, more to the point, avoid mistakes.
We are going to be in this same spot next year if Brice Ramsey or Bauta don't get on the field now..
