Exactly, and how really stooopid is Ariens ?
well, smash-mouth football is physically hard and tiring on both "O" and opposing "D"..., and since we had a comfortable lead the 1st-half, predictably Ariens', decided to relax and go-to-the-AIR. :)
Ummmmm, and of course, any opposing high-school football team would have figured that out. -Lol
Hence why we almost FAILED. !
Now, where was TOMLIN !!!, to force any re-adjusments onto Ariens/Ben ??? -mix it up again. , short-jab routes mixed with runs, ...., ...
and this was the REAL problem here. Instead, they "fallback" on our "D", yet again, to save the day.
it's the same crap week-in, and week out.
But hey, I'm just a fumbling Observer.
