    UM's defense should have been gassed midway through the third quarter. Why didn't our o-line take total control of the game and blow them off the ball?

    Perhaps because we're missing three starters now.

    Max Garcia and Tyler Moore are not as good as advertised, at least not in the run game.

    Physically they did except for,the following things:


    1. Playcalling was bad. Running game can't open up pass game and viceverse.
    2. Constant turnovers kill morale
    3. Playing from behind; see #1
    4. You give Driskel ample time but if he has no pocket presence, the pocket eventually breaks down. Any OL looks bad when that happens.
    5. Did I mention that nothing looks good on O when playcalling sucks and you cough up the pigskin?

    I was shocked to hear how many got hurt during the game.

    Harrison, Humphries, and Moore, plus Halapio and Chaz already being out... I mean... that's FIVE starters.

    Other teams do conditioning too, relying on wearing down people isn't a strategy its a gimmick, Boom's is a much bigger gimmick offense than Meyer or Spurrier's approaches ever were.
