If it wasn't for special teams, this game would of had a very similar result to the Oregon State game.
The tempo was excellent for all but 2-3 series (not counting the last one ad we were trying to run out the clock of course).
Cool it sounded much quicker. Tell you what, Mark on Koa needs to chill a bit. He was going nuts over like 4 yard gains lol. Dude is gonna have a heart attack.
It was must faster...that's all on Sefo and his leadership and experience. Tempo is a big reason we look subpar against USC.
I heard that, too. He was very excited and talking loud & I thought someone had broken a 30 yard run. Nope. Three yards.
Yep Sefo was Sefo again last night. Proud of him.
I felt like the officials were having difficulty keeping up with the buffs tempo last night.
and I'm pretty sure they were gassed at the end of the game too...
true it was must faster....
Mark has always been that way for 3-4 yard runs - nothing new there.
One problem with the tempo is that it's hard to milk the clock. Halfway through the fourth quarter and we were still hiking the ball with 20 seconds left on the play clock. Otherwise, it's a great tool, especially at altitude. ASU was completely gassed in that last drive.
That up-tempo thing really works at home, especially when the o-line is getting off and dominating, or at least just doing their jobs. The line has some true and quiet swagger built up.
I'm just wondering if it can be an on and off type deal. You see teams play balls to the wall all game, then need to kill clock. Seems like it would be difficult.
I too would like to see if they can mix in full speed and half speed. I would imagine varying the tempo on a single drive would be akin to getting a steady diet of fastballs, then all of a sudden getting a change up.
I always thought Zimmer did this a lot too.
What's interesting about our offense is that we have a positive time of possession...we average around 33 minutes.
Time of possession is a highly overrated statistic. I'm not concerned with TOP, but I do want to have the ability to run the play clock down to 4 seconds before hiking the ball while remaining effective at running the offense.
