As long as we keep moving the ball, we are winning. My concern isn't that we stopped moving the ball late in the game. The problem was that we couldn't stop Tennessee from getting the ball back when we needed to eat some clock. IF we don't fumble or throw the ball away or run the ball out of bounds at our own 1, all of those things are hidden.
The concern I have is what happens when we can't move the ball, as we saw in the 4th quarter. Having broken long plays in all the games isn't a predictor of future ability to do so. You can bet South Carolina and Florida have looked at what Tennessee did defensively to hold us to 16 yards in the last 1/3 of the ball game.
Despite what we saw Saturday in the conference, there will come a game this season that we'll have to win without breaking 60+ yard plays offensively. I'm not sure it'll be this weekend, but it will happen. My concern is that we'll end up having to rely on Bobo to figure out how to get production out of an offense that the other team, either through scheme or match ups, has figured out, especially figured out how to stop the home run play. That is my concern.
I have loved what I've seen out of Bobo this season. He's shown the ability to adjust and get his players to preform extremely well. I just worry that we'll be in a position where we have a two point lead and 4 minutes on the clock and become unable to matriculate the ball down the field because someone has sold out to stop our running game and we become afraid to do the things that has put us in the lead.
To that end, here's hoping that we get the ball outside our own 20 if that is the case.
