The I formation on the last two drives

The defense played very badly, but am I the only one who can't believe we went to the I-formation on that second to last drive?  There was still plenty of time left in the game why were we not running the offense?  We moved the ball at will in the second half!  The defense gave up the touchdown but that decision gave UMass the ball inside the 30 and almost cost us the game in my opinion.

That was close, I-Formation was a bad idea, thier line is an average 303-Pounds, they would kill us pound to pound running the I-Formation, and they did on that drive!!

I could be wrong, but I believe on 3rd and short on the last drive of the ND game, we did the I-Form and got stuffed. On 4th and 1, we went back to the shotgun and converted, the rest is history. When we absolutely needed it, we went with our bread and butter. Not sure why we EVER run out of the I-formation.
