After rewatching the Memphis game, these are the biggest plays to me:
KO return for a TD. It was a fast answer to a long drive that kept things from getting out of hand. And Memphis started to believe.
Postma fumble on n the blind-side sack. He had Bonner wide open out of the break, but he double hitched. He never saw the blitzed. It allowed Memphis to get back to within 10 when we could have knocked the, out.
Dropped Interception/Unsportsmanlike Conduct Penalty: not only did Winchester drop a gimme, but the penalty change it from 3rd and goal from the 5 to 1st and Goal from the 2.
In the end, UH choked. With 1:30 left in the third Q we pooch kicked. They scored in under a minute.
We scored again to go up 17 and choked.
Our DBs gave a ton of cushion. Safeties were 15 yards deep often and back pedaling at the snap.
Memphis Gave up on running and we gave them 12 years passing per attempt.
Memphis also played everyone in the box and run blitzed and pass blitzed most of the second half. They forces bad decisions. And we could not stop them.
Time to get USF…Go Coogs!
