Lack of the first two and extra of the third may have been our downfall, especially on D. Not just this game, but in most of our losses. As we all know but sometimes forget the magnitude of it's importance, football games are long and very exhausting. There's a reason why you have 85 guys on scholarship when all you need is 11 at a time. If you don't have enough quality players to substitute regularly throughout the game, your guys are toast by the end. This may explain why our OT records are abysmal, too. Our D looked as if it was running in quicksand from mid 3rd qtr to the end of double OT. Our OL wasn't getting nearly the push it got early, either. Why else did we struggle mightily to move the ball. When Ugag tied it up late in the 4th, all we needed was to get into field goal range and could even do that. The D needed ONE stop in the fourth qtr to win the game and couldn't get it. The 4th down play Ugag converted with 9 minutes left was a microcosm of the game and season and the identity of this team.
