Iíd like a reporter to ask Dabo two questions. First, who decided to run the ball in the last series after we took over on downs? Second, why run the ball when we havenít been able to do it all night?

Games have a flow to them and who knows what happens without the scoop and score but to me it never felt like Clemson was the better team. The in ability to run the ball is a tremendous issue.

I thought Elliot called a tremendous game to mitigate our inability to run the ball. He effectively figured out a way to use the pass an an extension of the run, and then DJ was simply tremendous at executing.

Either he or Dabo ignored that we could not run on them as we ran the ball three times rather than trying to get a first down by passing.

Agree. Our dline is either young or on the sideline injured. Our oline is a mess and now Brockhorst is injured. We had some veterans step up and almost bring home a win but overall ND played and coached a better game. Losing this game might actually help wake up this team that they must improve to be considered worthy of a CFP selection.

It MAY have been Daboís call to force ND to use timeouts, leaving it up to Elliot to determine how to do so.

Running to the edge and out of bounds kind of blew up that plan. Frustrating, and same result as a dropped pass. Atleast the passing game was moving the chains most of the game. Still waiting for Galloway to be used in these types of game situations.

Those who play not to lose end up doing exactly that.
