  1. He stared down the WR on that pick 6, but it’s not all on Guarantano.
    The UT play calling is terrible. Chaney asks for too many LONG throws horizontally. That not only makes your QB have to wait in the pocket longer, but if you’re throwing across the field you’re leaving yourself open to picks. The balls in the air too long on those throws. Cut those out. That’s asking a QB to make pinpoint throws 35-40 yards to WR for 15 yard gains, who may or may not run good routes.
    Guarantano, on top of that, doesn’t anticipate WR coming open, but waits until they appear open then decides to throw. You can’t do that against SEC defenses. It’s the coaching staff’s job to adjust play calling to their players’ strengths and they’re not doing it. They have to get smarter than they’re coaching. That was one of the worst efforts I’ve seen from a UT team and staff in a while.
