I was thinking about the defense but more in terms of "tempo only works if you get first downs."

Honestly I am not a big fan of the home run ball as a major component.  It's a low percentage play.   I'd rather hit big plays through shorter throws that hit the playmakers on the move and allow them to use their speed and skill to create explosive plays.   Along with that the O needs better spacing.  Last year we lacked that as the pass routes sent folks into zones where they just stopped and waited for a throw and the routes also led to a lot of congestion that made the receivers much easier to cover.

Well said and agree that Franklin got lucky bringing in the new OC - he's worked out VERY well for them this last year.

I dunno.  Whenever I watched them, especially against better teams, they moved the ball more in chunks via "chuck and pray" 50/50 balls than by solid drives created by great play-calling from my perspective  Maybe the guy's good or maybe McSorely and the receivers made him look good.  I can't tell at this point.

That's what the runs for both teams have been.  The B1G is bad this year.

It would not surprise me to see this conference make it no further than the Sweet 16.
