How many starters did Olu lose this year to transfer......3-4 or more? I don't hear them making excuses.

I was responding to the post saying the offense was anemic. When your two best offensive players are injured, that tends to affect offensive production. Every time a fan comes on and discusses their team's performance, all you yahoos come on and whine about people making 'excuses.' I'm just making conversation amongst fans. Giving reasons for subpar performance does not mean making excuses.

And to answer your question, I haven't heard anything from OLU......about anything.

WITH Eteaki and Moore the Servite Offense will STILL struggle to move the ball. WITHOUT both of them, as we witnessed on Friday vs Edison, the offense is a JV squad playing at the "Big Boy" Level.

IMO, the only decision to be made is go go back to the QB in a shotgun/pistol formation with BOTH Eteaki and Moore in the backfield. You need both of those guys on the field at the same time to give this offense a chance to move the ball. Neither is a legitimate threat as WR so bring them both back in the backfield. Sticking with the same scheme will lead to nothing but more of the same.

Agreed. This offense is an unmitigated disaster so far. Etiaki and Moore need to get the majority of the touches. The qb needs to be in the gun and for god's sake the running backs need to be deeper so they can run downhill. They may be so entrenched into the existing scheme that it is too late to change since there are limited hours to practice. However it is painfully obvious that this offense is going nowhere and will continue to get shut down by everyone from here on out. This week the friars will get an embarrassing beat down and probably get shut out again by Gorman. I know the talent is down but to see the offense look like a frosh/soph team in terms of execution is painful to say the least.

Without a doubt they will struggle regardless. However, a healthy Eteaki and Moore would have at least been able to move the ball a little bit. Like I said in another post, without Moore, Servite is 0-3.

Just interested in accuracy. Which is why I would not say that Servite has beaten O Lu 10 times in a row, when it's only been 8 in a row. See how that works?

No, because streaks are for people living in the past.

Even with Eteaki and Moore, Servite is not a great team and comparing their respective value to that of Jordan or Brady is a quite stretch.

Servite's QB has a long way to go, before he is D1...The RB issue is not the reason they lost....Edison beats Servite by 20 if they played again. Come on not crossing the 50 until the third qt is being dominated.

Edison team foot speed is the slowest I have seen in a few years, D line is tough and active, o line big and will get into thier guys. White needs to keep it basic for the QB, does not look as good as he did in passing league. Some said he was as good as Chase last year, of course White got that one right, Chase is alot better than him right now. Hopefully he gets hot and on a roll into the playoffs, I would love to see Edy take the Division.

I have seen MD and they are very tough, I would have them 10 point favorites over Edy, Edy must play perfect and grind out a 13-10 win. Ball control and field position with the D will be keys...Real basic football..

I didn't compare them. I used Jordan and Brady to illustrate how stupid your comment was. Based on your opinion, the Bulls were not a great team, nor were the Patriots.

If servite ran this offense or the current offense with more running plays they would be just fine. They average almost 5 yards a carry

I am amazed to hear they average 5 yards per carry. Most of the yards I've seen have come on QB scrambles. I've haven't seen a handoff run go for more than 10 yards. In any event, anyone who watches film can see that they have zero passing game so everyone will just stack the front 7 and not let them run. The offense needs to change or they will have zero chance for the next several weeks and might even lose to St. Paul.

Having seen St. Paul play against Mater Dei, I don't see any way Servite can lose that game.

According to the O.C. Register, Servite has run 113 times for 436 yards (3.86 average).

Or should I say Moore almost averages 5 yards a carry.
