I know its an old song, but it seems that when we are in close games we go away from using them.

I know Wiliams and Ford were out.

But when you look at the stats and see

THREE RBS carrying 22- 98 yds

and Grothe 20 for 54 yds.

I gotta say Grothe was running too much. Also we need to run with the spread, stop taking the WRS out and trying to run in bunch formation our OLine is not strong enough to move the opponents if they are all stacked at the line.

I hope we use the RBS a lot more vs Kansas, we need to control the clock

agreed... we had success in the first drive with Plancher... and then went to the passing game after that... it was baffling.

The run was working, and it was opening up the passing game.

I don't know why we took out R. Kelly at the end of the game when we were running out the clock.

When I saw Richard Kelly I was so confuzed. I said holy sh** its Mike Ford. Hes Huge. I was like Oh my God this guy is a beast. We need to use this guy more. Explosive power and sneeky speed. I think we tried to run more than we should of. The defense was keying on the running game it was obvious. We had every deep pass for the taking. We can't be afraid to go there if thats what they want to give us. We could of done it all the time on those weak corners.

Personally, I think Jamar Taylor would be the best back in the bunch if he was given consistent carries.

...we did have 500 yards of offense. My only complaint was the play calling in the last 4 minutes.

and on the goal line.

no reason to not give it to Kelly and let him plow through for a couple of yards.

Remember that anytime Grothe scrambles that counts as a rush. So while he may have had 20 rushes, maybe only 10 were called runs. So you have to consider that running Grothe less might not even raise the carries by RBs any.

I agree we need to keep their offense off the field and our D rested. they will not be able to run on us and will be throwing a lot of passes

Good point, he was sacked what, 4 times? Plus just scrambling on busted plays at least 5 times.
