Now, some of this has to do with the fact that Van Dyke lost his favorite receiver following week-two, after Xavier Restrepo went down with an injury. Follow that with an injury to Jacolby George against Texas A&M, and Van Dyke’s weapons are not what we all thought they’d be.
Going off of that, Van Dyke lost both leading receivers from 2021, Charleston Rambo and Mike Harley.
Another reason is the fact that Van Dyke worked much better in Rhett Lashlee’s up-tempo, spread attack. It’s very easy to tell, Van Dyke does not look comfortable operating and running Gattis’ offensive scheme.
