Last week we got more of the former, but the redzone woes continue to be mystifying. It's not just Lee making bad decisions, or RBs and WRs fumbling (all of which are happening in spades). The o-line gets in the act too, with game changing penalties at the very worst moments. I will never forget a 1st and goal against VT turning into a punt on 4th down.
Anyway, still looking forward to the game. Hopefully we can continue to clean things up, get a win, and come into Texas with our health and momentum.
I don't think the turnover machine will come back again. Knock on wood lol. I think it was because Helu was hurt and so was the O-line. If Burkhead doesn't get hurt in practice I don't think we lose to Iowa State. Clearly Helu couldn't hold onto the football but because we didn't have anyone else besides Robinson we had to go with Helu with a bad arm.
