Play calling has been close to the vest. Opened up when D'Eriq made his debut today as a receiver. (Collective breath of fresh air) Opened up again when Postma came in in relief. (Great flurry of action making one nostalgic of times past, but just too late to overcome the hand dealt.)
Is this another moment where the skill set of the field general is a mismatch with the offense as previously conceived? Reminds of the O'Korn situation.
I understand the crowd wanting to go 1-0 EVERY week. I also understand the perceived concern of the coaching staff (past/present) to withhold certain capabilities until the bigger games.
Was this game today a bigger game? Yes and no. For those of us who yearn for parity with the Power Five, yes. For those of us who remember the long gone SWC as youngsters, yes. For winning the current conference of residence, no.
Aggravating? yes. But that's why we don't mail it in. On to the next challenge...
