    Run Game Indicator

    Maybe no big surprise as we've always seen the emphasis on the run game with Ferentz but this team wins when they outperform their opponents on the ground. Every game they've won this year they gained more yards on the ground than the opponent and in each loss the opponent gained more on the...

    Offensive ineptness - is this where it starts?

    "At that moment, Davis was in the middle of his 38th year as a football coach, the last 13 of them at Texas with Brown. Until that moment, I had never seen so much as a flicker of his temper. But when I asked him about his fundamental football truths — those principles embedded in the heart of...
