    There’s no secret sauce here, Ian.

    They’ve been undersized in the triangle the last two years. In 2015 they had a very productive offense and that problem didn’t matter so much [against non-Oklahoma teams at any rate]. In 2016 they didn’t have that offensive crutch, and got worn down against more physical offenses [they were basically tied at half against OSU and K State, but got rolled afterwards, for example].

    Hope springs eternal; Ross Blacklock might be the Andrew Billings we never had.


    PS: Your ‘2nd Theorem of Bad Frog Defense’ sounds like it came from a coach whose name rhymes with ‘Mad Plasgow’.

    PPS: Mad Plasgow is a drunk poker game I invented in Las Vegas.

      Well there’s also stuff like the failure to nail down run fits that doesn’t relate to the DL play or being undersized. And K-State had some success right off the bat running on TCU although I think size was a factor there as well. There was also confusion on run fits. The cover 1 stuff really makes me think along these lines.

      It wasn’t Chad Glasgow, haha.

    OK, but it can be hard to disentangle confusion on run fits from taking too dang long to get the pre-snap plays called.

    If I ever turn into one of those ‘Get Off My Lawn’ guys, it will most certainly be due to Gary Patterson’s late pre-snap signals.
