Two turnovers

When you put the ball on the dirt and have it returned for a TD, that's how you end up in overtime against a team you should beat by 20. Add in a fumble inside the ten and that's all you need to know.

And before you go all 'but it's Georgia Southern,' don't mistake them for the DI-AA team we saw last. They played very strong defense. With our offensive philosophy, those two mistakes can make a swing. Even with their muffed punt, we are not equipped to sling the ball around.

The disappearance of our South Carolina offense if baffling to me. We ran a few of those plays, and it looked like they were open much of the night. And the dropped passes.

As you can tell, this is more of a stream of consciousness rant than anything. I'm happy for the win. Do not misunderstand that. The defense played really well. The offense looked good for long stretches. I just don't get why it isn't sustained. I suspect some of that is offensive line play, combined with whatever limitations we have placed on us by the QB situation, compounded by guys dropping drive extending passes.
