    Seeing Perine’s block at the 5:42 mark was all by itself worth watching this. I did not see that during the game and can’t believe it wasn’t show in a replay. Great hit. This was an interesting take. The host is lot more optimistic about FF than I and I take comfort that he’s a lot more knowledgeable than I so hopefully he’s right about FF and I’m wrong.

      cover2, your full summary was fantastic (as usual). Touching specifically on what I quoted above, the tackling...I griped about this in the game thread. Some of us saw the poor tackling clear as can be yet stunningly some posters defended and were apologists for the players in the Matador U position group. It’s refreshing to see a guy with your coaching experience discuss this issue, if for no other reason than to let us critics know that we aren’t crazy and that the tackling by the DBs really did suck. Keep up the great work.

        Turnovers matter, not percentages. If we split evenly the remaining turnovers in our games, then we will be (presumably) better off with a worse percentage (i.e., fewer total turnovers) since we will be favored in most games and turnovers lead to upsets.
        Two things about turnovers:
        1) we did well to win while negative 3 in turnovers, as your reference pointed out;
        2) and, thanks for the reference. I always suspected that they were random and it's nice to have proof.

          No problem. Hopefully, we just survived our worst turnover performance of the year. 1:4 ratio isn’t that common and winning with that ratio even less so, especially against a P5 team.

          I ran across another article that breaks down the randomness. Some fumbles are less random than others. Something like 70% of defense caused fumbles past the LOS are recovered by the defense. I’ll look for it and post if I find it again.

          Edit: Here you go. Interesting statistical analysis by MGoBlog.

              He highlighted well how FF doesn't stare down the receiver in that first clip....then I watched him make no comment later as FF stares down his receiver in later clips. :facepalm:
