I believe our only chance to beat OM was to outscore them. Before you roll your eyes at the obvious, let me explain. Anyone can see that our defense can’t stop a good offensive team enough to keep the score reasonable. Last night we had the firepower and game plan to score a lot in the second half but the injuries to Devwah and Boyd killed any chance at the running game. Hayden has the speed but lacks the ability to hit the hole correctly. I’ve notice several runs where he had a hole and either ran past the hole or cut before hitting the hole. And his pass pro (IMO) is lacking. Those 2 RB losses were killers.
When Ty went down our chances to win went from good to really bad. Cole cannot run the offense and has that ability to throw to the wrong team. I wish we had tried Connor. The result may have been the same but maybe not.
So my theory is that the game was our until those three injuries.
Tough loss for the kids. They fought hard.
