Yeah, i doubt Harrington (of the first quarter) would of over thrown and missed the corner to Robinson, however he was that flustered proir to being taken out that i dont think he would of had the guts to throw it long. He was taken out cause he was hit ALL DAY LONG and started missing 5 yard passes.
Harrington's weak throw across his body cost us a TD earlier to Roddy, if he leads him there we score. He didnt have to throw it across his body, for once (on the boot) he had no pressure, he should of straighted his body up first then thrown. If white doesnt have to come back at the ball he scores.
While that was the only unforced mistake i saw from Harrington it was still completed pass. Im not ready to say the QB is to blame for this game and havent changed focus from last week when Harrington played well. Peyton Manning wouldnt of done any better today, the pressure was everywhere. We need a LT come draft day and for Petrino to have a close look at tapes of Michael Bush to see if the way his scheme opened lanes for him even translate to the NFL. Im really starting to question the translation to NFL success of Petrinos blocking scheme. All i can look at is the proof, we have guys who fit every criteria in terms of eligability for them to adopt it and it isnt working.
1. We have a rookie BUILT for a scheme like ours who is struggling big time week in week out.
2. We have vet's who should have seen every scheme under the sun and have had months of adopt this scheme, by week 5 it should well and truly be 2nd nature. These guys arent idiots, it scares me to think that it is 2nd nature now and the guys are doing everything right, (at least everything Louisville did to open lanes for Bush) the stuff just isnt translating to this level
3. We have Renardo Forster who played in it last year, he doesnt look any better
