    I feel like that applied to a few games last year as well.

    Feels like we dominated them on defense except for two plays - 55% of their offensive production for the whole game came on those two snaps (BTW, whatever happened to ‘keeping everything in front of you’?)

    Shai looked good for the most part on his first 4-5 pass attempts, then he completely lost his composure.

    Offense also looked solid right up until we get into or near the red zone, whereupon the staff seems to collectively become disoriented and the players look like they’re playing in a sand pit.

    Weird game indeed.
    Sincerely,

    P.S.: Have a nice day!

    Yes. IMO, the offense was solid—especially in the first half—barring certain situations. If we get better at those situations, we’ll score more TDs and maybe get bowl eligible.

    If we don’t get better situationally, we'll continue to stink at scoring points. It’s hard to win when you don’t score points.

    I would like to see USA’s offensive numbers minus the four first down plays, all of which were pretty big.
    Thanks, Rastabot!

    Yes. The red zone is only one of a few ‘situations’ where we lose our bearings.

    I think they had about 70+/- total yards outside of those 4 plays. The box score looks like a bludgeoning everywhere other than the scoreboard.

    USA had 15 possessions and failed to get a first down on 12 of them.

    Take away the four 20+ yard plays, and USA had 0 first downs, running 35 plays for 49 yards.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen a team play that poorly on such a large percentage of its plays and still have a 90+ % win expectancy late in the fourth quarter.

    Red zone and third down are probably the two biggest. Third down is rough in both passing and running situations.

    The offense last night kinda reminded me of early 2016, when ran the ball “okay” but couldn’t generate big plays.

    Anyway, at least we have a pretty clear idea of what we need to do to get better. That’s better than nothing.

    I think they said on the broadcast that the record for lowest number of 1st downs in a game and still get a win was 5 by Arkansas. Thank goodness we didn't make it into that hall of shame.

    Agree. A conference road win is good no matter what.

    That 20 is more than 17.

    We had no turnovers correct?

    Blocked a FG.

    Forced a fumble in 2nd OT.

    Used up just enough time to tie the game in the 4th, without giving them time for a comeback
    .
    No longer eating crow for saying "The TO is gone get over it!!"
