My quick thoughts on Loeffler...

  • Forgive the grammar...it's late for me. 1 game is hardly enough to fairly judge anyone, but here are some things I noticed.

    From a schematic standpoint, he is everything I want at Auburn. He is very formation oriented and uses motions, shifts, and multiple TE's to try and outflank the defense. He uses the tight ends every way imaginable. He will use them as attached, split out, at the H back, or all of the above in certain formations. He showed the ability to line up in gun, pistol, and under center.

    His M.O. seems to include 2 WR's, boxed or split TE, and some combination of a 2 back set with a TB and H back.

    He runs some inside zone and designed QB runs, but he is heavy on the Gap Scheme(thank you Jesus). Counters, bases, isos, and powers, are the bread and butter of his running game. It is no coincedence that Temple finished
    7th in the country in rushing, because he flat out knows how to run the ball. The unknown (as there are many) is whether he will stay comitted to the run when its tough sledding early in a game.

    I did not watch the throw game as much, but picked up 3 things that I really like. 1) He attacks you vertically. He took several shots down the field, and seems to like to stretch a defense. 2) On 3rd downs, he throws to the marker. I cant stand people who make it a regular practice to throw short of the marker. 3) He involves the TE's in the passing game from the boxed and flexed positions. Any DC will tell you that when you have to truly account for 1 or more TE's in the passing game, it limits some things you can do on that side of the ball. Throwing to the TE is an underutilized weapon in college football these days IMO.

    He had a terrible QB trying to lead his offense. He looked much different than Addazio did in his final year at Florida, and a heck of a lot better to.

    Only time will tell if he can recruit, prepare effective gameplans, and keep a defense off balance with his play calling ability, but I certainly like what I have seen to this point.(which is 1 game)

    I am convinced Auburn is a championship calliber QB from being back in the title hunt. Development of QB's seems to be his strongsuit. At the end of the day, Auburn might not have gotten who they wanted, but we might of gotten who we needed IMO.

  • Good analysis, I'm not concerned one bit. This will prove to be an effective hire maybe even a great hire, time will tell - WDE

    I do not own the rights so that would be a bad idea. I can tell you that there are torrent files of it out there. I think it would be ok to post some stills so I will try and include those when I post tomorrow.
