And it's 100% bad playcalling on 1st and 2nd downs putting us in bad situations in later downs.
I don't agree. Here was our play sequence when we had first-and-goal at the beginning of the fourth quarter (the drive where we ended up kicking to go up 9-7):
First and goal, at the 10: zone handoff to Toussaint which picked up seven yards.
Second and goal, at the 3: fade to Funchess that was broken up by the MSU linebacker.
Third and goal, at the 3: pass to a wide-open Gallon that is thrown behind him and dropped.
What was bad about that set of playcalls? First down worked very well, second down got Funchess isolated on a linebacker, and third down got Gallon all alone in the middle of the endzone. I guess you could argue that Fitz should have had another carry after first down, but the next two calls weren't bad by any means.
