Watching the game, I knew in the second quarter it was over. Why do we try and run sideways against a team our O coordinator said had great team speed on defense? That only allows them the time to catch up. You must run at the speed and have blocking schemes to get the consistent 4 yards and the occasional game changer. Our offense needs a complete change.
Everyone talked all year long about how good our bend but don't break defense was. We held teams under there average scoring and yardage. But we did not get off the field. How many 3 and outs did Tulsa have? I know we had too many and our defense got tired, but if we held them to more 3 and outs, we would get to rest sooner. A defense will never out condition an offense and we must figure out how to get off the field before an 8 play drive.
We need new schemes. Especially on offense. We have some talent, but I would really like to see us be able to line up and get 4 yards in a cloud of dust most of the time. Where was Woody last night? I only remember him carrying the ball a couple of times. When we were up 14 to 10 and needed to sustain a drive, why not Woody for a few plays with straight up the field runs? I am really questioning the play calling.
Friends don't let friends wear black & gold. Build a man a fire, you keep him warm for a day. Set a man on fire, you keep him warm for the rest of his life. Set a hawkeye fan on fire, you make Iowa a better place to live.
