It was more than just turnovers, our defense refused to leave the field while they built that 31-7 lead. Saying we are as good as them because we made it close is the same as saying Tampa is as good as us because they made it close.
We didn't start shutting them down until the 4th quarter. Apparently we need a full half to overcome a 24 point deficit.
That was also when Joe Mays was starting. Lots has changed since then for the better
