That is certainly not the whole story. His receivers were terrible last year. Only one could catch anything. He over fifty drops from receivers last year—one of the worst in the nation. If they catch half of those his season is much better. Compare his first half to his second half last year. Because of drops he just forced things to the receiver who could catch. He also didn’t start three full seasons. And he has had three head coaches and thus three different offensive systems. This will be the first year with the same offense back to back years. Much of this explains the struggle you have noted. The raw talent is there. And to say no drop off from him to Shough is ridiculous. Just read an article yesterday where many players were saying he was the best player in camp. And doesn’t show up in big games? Arguably two of the biggest games last year were Washington and Stanford...he played lights outs. I would say the team didn’t show up on the road...that is a coaching issue not a Herbert issue. I you still have the same assessment after this year, I will be surprised.
