How you have one back averaging over 7 yards a carry, another averaging over 5 yards a carry and you still throw the ball with a QB who is throwing below 50% for the day boggles my mind.
Yes, but at sometime in the game it is the job of the HC to take that over. I remember when we played SC and Urban said he believed that Mullen was trying to outsmart Spurrier and he had to take control for a bit and stop running those trick plays Mullen was trying. In the end it falls on the HC and I think that will be Fulmer's downfall. i think he was comfortable with Cutcliff in the past and he needs a more active role in the decisions.
