    That is the point the closeness of the loss is identical, the gap is identical.

    Three times the action in the space of one game.

    Either you make it your forte or you dial it back. I love the offense I would love to see it continue.

    Rarely do you see a super potent offense coupled with a shut down defense.

    There is no time for the defense to prepare in an up tempo game and it might not have mattered if they did against Tulsa. They averaged 42 last year and seem to be picking up where they left off.

    Hud was wise to go toe to toe ( UL's scoring percentage would have gone down with ball control) but in the end UL wasn't use to the quick thinking nuances of up tempo.

    I do think UL should have stacked to box and forced them to go over the top, even if they were successful I doubt they would have scored much faster and it may have rattled the new QB.

    We made like 2 stops all game. We would have lost by 3 scores to any type of offense making only 2 stops. It's not like they were throwing every down. They scored 66 point primarily RUNNING the ball. They could have huddled at the end of every play and still beat us by 3 scores, BECAUSE WE COULD NOT STOP THE RUN.

    Could not, and did not, are two different things.

    How many times did UL stack the box and force their hand?

    Would they have scored any faster? Pick-6?
