I was there for every second of the game, and the only time I heard booing, it was directed at the refs (Terrell Williams ejection and no call on targeting Chance Allen). However, I can admit I was extremely frustrated with the play calling. I had forgotten about that series right before the half, but we did the exact same thing late in the game that resulted in a punt. That was the drive where Davis stripped the ball and Egbule returned it for a TD. But the game was tied and we ran 3 times and punted giving them an eternity to go down and win the game. Given Ward’s passing and scrambling successes the entire game, I can’t come up with a single good reason we would run up the middle 3 times in that situation. Applewhite sometimes seems obsessed with establishing an inside run game when it clearly is not there. I just don’t get it. Sometimes you just have to ditch the game plan and go with what has worked.
On that note, did we run a single jet sweep with D’Eriq King this week? We were having decent success running on the outside, but seems like we didn’t use King much at all. Not sure I understand that.
