Mickey said this morning that the 11 man coverage play

was likely a busted Zone blitz where the LB's did not pick up the call.(I assume the LB's get the call from somebody separate from the DL.)

Has that been confirmed by Venables or was that just speculation?

### does it matter. it was obviously a bust by someone or just a missed or screwed up call. god forbid our coaches would make a mistake.

Well, that is what I'd like confirmed.

Carlos Watkins is quoted as saying that there was supposed to be a blitz by whoever was "uncovered". They were unassuming someone would be free with so confusion by their OL and whoever had opening was to blitz.

think just a little outthinking ourselves.

But man, that would've been pretty had it been a screen

Bad miss because it wasn't, but it would've made a screen play look silly.

It was a great call, I think it was going to be a screen or short pass over the middle. When QB realized all routes were covered, he threw it up for grabs in a one on one situation. We just missed the play.

but most importantly, he completed the pass...

and it gave VT new life because it helped to set up a touchdown... that really could have been a game changer but still yet, we RISE!!

GO TIGERS!!

I doubt they missed that call: it looked designed to me.

If that was by design, I hope they've burned and buried...

those plans by now. One of the worst plays I've EVER seen.
However, our coaches know more about football than I want to know,just looked bad to me.
Go Tigers!!

Because of that play it allowed Virgina tech to get back in the game. Wasn't that 3rd and 9?

I felt the same during the game but

It took more than one play.

I assume it was a zone blitz

Now either the LB's missed the call, or they all read screen immediately and bailed.

It was odd to see for sure

Watkins said that someone was supposed to come blitz, but also said that Coach V apologized (I assume to the players).

Not sure if that clears anything up.

Good to hear there was some accountability from the coaches on this call. It looked horrible. Our coaches, especially on the offensive side, have made some "strange" calls this year.

Carlos Watkins is quoted as saying, it was a zone blitz and I won't call out what linebacker missed the call.
