Completely impotent 3rd qtr by offense. Self has 188 yards passing before last completion but as announcers pointed out about 133 of them were on the two long scores.

Whoever is in charge of this broadcast is awful

Gipson's 2nd touchdown keeps us alive at 24-21. Offense a no show in 3rd qtr, then has a long 88 yard drive to stay alive. I guess bi-polar does cover it.

Agreed. Those camera angles are horrible.

Our redzone offense and play calling this season has been pitiful. Especially inside the 10.

I would've thrown on 3rd down. But Storm is automatic. I trust the decision to not go for it.

Terrible and idiotic play calling from the 1 yard line.

Another game we should have already won. First and goal from the 2? I cannot STAND having a QB in the shot gun in that situation. You don't have 1 play under center for a QB sneak? Awful.

We've used a lot of plays under center all year. It's confusing.

ACU's camera work is as bad as our redzone playcalling.

Really confused on why we only have one play on 3rd down.

I can hear it now after "we're just going to bring our lunch and hard hat and get back to work". Well you should have brought your hard hat and lunch on the 2 yard line when the game was there to win. Shotgun? Are you kidding me?

Put this loss on the coaching staff. Play calling in the red zone is predictable and awful.
Guys gave great effort and then got shot in the foot by very poor coaching decisions.
Pitiful...should have been a win.

That one stings. Very winnable in regulation and OT. Continued poor red zone execution. Ruiz missing a 27 yard field goal. What a season. I keep telling myself that it is a process. Painful.

Carthel needs to get Humphreys to teach them how to finish a game.

Guys played hard. Yeah we're playing a ton of freshmen but there's no reason to lose that game.

I didn't get to watch. Can someone recap what happened at the end of regulation and in OT?

Agree, lest we forget our coach is also a freshman, and it really showed tonight.

Had 1st and goal at the 6 to win it in regulation and settled for a FG.

Had 1st and goal at the 2 and again settled for a FG, that we missed. ACU missed theirs as well.

ACU scores in 2OT and we couldn't get a first down on our possession and lost.

Well, crap. Just can't close. We're close.

I think Trae Self could be a really good quarterback if he gets just a little better run blocking. Couple of the play calls looked like coaching foibles to me.

The Jacks will get there. I think we or at least I want them to get there sooner. The staff is building something special and I can't wait to see it all come together.

As far as the quality of the ESPN broadcast SFA is lucky because at least our production crew knows what the hell they are doing. I'd be embarrassed if our home games looked like that.

Trae Self is gonna be straight up a beast one day. Just a sophomore now so he's got potential to be not just one of the best in the conference but the best in the FCS.
Right now he has accuracy and footwork issues, both of which need to be coached in the offseason. But he's got an outstanding arm. Quick release. And incredibly athletic and allusive.
His stats this season are really skewed due to a lot of drops to go along with his sometimes bad passes but he's honestly a lot better than his stats have shown.
I agree. Once the line comes together and can give that man some time to throw, we're gonna have a potent passing game.

As far as the play calling goes, I don't like it right now but I get their mentality. If our young players had the experience and were developed enough this offense would be great to grind teams down and put together long drives, something Carthel was well known for at the D2 level and honestly something that wins championships. Alabama does it. NDSU does it. Carthel's staff is trying to get us to do it. We just aren't quite there yet.

I'd like to see the aggressive play calling we had on our last touchdown drive, but I get that they want us to grind teams down.

Best news I have heard in a long long time.. We will get Pace back on a medical RS.. Our guys are fighters and we will get this thing rolling forward I have no doubt..
