Learn a lesson from UMBC John

Recommended Posts

One of the reasons they won is that they stayed aggressive,

They had the lead, but they didn't sit on it or try to milk the clock.

That closed the door for Virginia's chances to slowly get back in the game.

UMBC didn't lose in the final minutes....like Ravens fans see all too often.

 

Can we go all out for 60 minutes this year?

Well, was it UMBC or was it UVA losing their best player to injury before the tourney and the fact that they, UVA, don't play well in the tourney under this head coach....

 

 

Food for thought.. I also thought it low brow to keep taking shots, slam dunks when you have a 15 pt lead with under a minute...

Yep. How long now have we said the Ravens lack the killer instinct?

Low brow is an 88-point win in the first round.

The Ravens offense that we've all come to know and love goes like this:

 

Frirst Quarter: Fiddle around in the first quarter while trying to figure out the opponents defense and what they are giving up. Punting is good. You can win field position that way. No scoring from the Ravens but they think they have discoved something that may work later on.

 

2nd Quarter: Ah! They fooled us! Thought we had something on them but it was a disguised coverage and anyway our receivers legs are just warming up.

And besides, we're only down by 10.

 

5:23 left in the half. FG! 10-3. Only down 1 score!!! But wait....they scored again.

under 2 minutes: The Ravens O actually does very good here. Situation: 17-3. "Hey! Times running out so we can't throw 3 yard dump offs or run our routes 2-3 yards short of the sticks. "Guys, I know this is asking a lot out of you but just for this series, please run farther down the field. Oh. It's time to pass protect." Score! 17-10!

3rd quarter: Damn! These halftimes go fast! No time to make any adjustments! :zzz: Anyway.... Don't make any mistakes. We're only down by 7. Don't want it to get worse. Let's fool them and not run the ball. We want to go into the 4th quarter with a chance to win the game. Besides, all that talk about how important it is to win the 3rd Quarter is overrated. Besides, we have the best kicker in the game! 2 FG's 24-16. Yea the other team got lucky and scored a TD.

 

4th Quarter: This quarter goes 2 ways. Way #1: Shit! We gotta get going guys! And they score 14 points. But the other team scored 7. 31-30. Just couldn't get Tucker in range for the game winner.

Way #2 We have a 10 point lead. Don't do anything stupid. Now we can run the ball. They'll never guess that....and go back to the 2-3 yard dump offs. We have a great defense. "OH Shit! They scored 14! What's with Carr?! And where were Jefferson and Weedle? But...Ravens score a TD. Down by 4. 2 minute offense again and it's working....at the 30...4th down...the pass goes to Wallace/Perriman/Moore/...dropped! Boy that sure was exciting. We didn't quit! :gorave:
