The play that killed them was,,,,

the false start penalty. Brown made catch that set up 2nd and 2... then we had a false start, now behind the chains. I'm not sure i agree that we were gashing them w/ run game. We had some decent runs but we certainly weren't controlling the LOS. Remember the 2 running plays on first and goal at the 3? I thought their D-line got the better of our O-line for most of the day.

penalties and a defensive scheme that after 5 weeks, we still can't run is what killed this team. Just way too many easy, wide open big plays for the opposition because we have guys our there who don't know where they're supposed to be. It's was problem in week 1 vs. CSU and it's still problem in week 5. hate to say it because everyone is all in w/ Mel but he's a former DB coach, defensive minded guy... this is on him, summers and tillman. our db play is terrible. 1:50 left, you just score after trick play and you let a ho hum WR just run right past everybody to be open for a long bomb? At that point, you're number one priority as a safety is to keep the ball in front of you. Just like nebraska when we scored off flea flicker then lost outside contain(a basic football concept) and they go 80 on very next play.

Yes we had multiple injuries, don't have much depth and are playing guys who probably shouldn't. That matters but many of these mistakes happen with first teamers on the field. its maddening.

Notice how i didn't put any blame on Montez. I thought he was good yesterday. Not great, but good. on the list of reasons why we lost, he's nowhere near the top.
