Applewhite shut down this offense much better than Temple did.
We were actually running the read-option well in the first half.
Postma had some good runs. Birden had some good plays.
Postma was challenging the DBs down the field when they thought they could go man-to-man coverage (tough OPI calls, deleted one TD).
We take the 2nd half KO, drive the field and go up 20-3. THEN we decide to call every play so that the pass is on or behind the LOS. We killed them when we threw it down the field. And it opened up the run.
But then back to the sideline to sideline pass game. Terrible, horrible conservative play calling.
