    Looking at advanced stats from 2015 alone (cause the profile doesn't exist for 2014), the line was doing their job 42% of the time in giving him opportunities (and an opportunity means ~5 yards rushing on a play). For each one of those opportunities, he was averaging 10.9 YPP. We were at the same opportunity rate for our leading rushers that year. That means just shy of half the time, we were getting AT LEAST 5 YPP. So no, your assumption is incorrect.

    Go back and watch Klak's Quick Cuts from 2014 and 2015 and you'll see a LOT of good running plays out of the gun. You'll also see a lot of great blocking from the OL and H-backs. I know for certain you loved a certain play in the 2015 Idaho game.

    It's not all his speed that did it, it was the OL creating the holes for him to do it. We were damn good up front in 14/15. That's the reason we were good on offense.
    Thank you for doing the research, eaglewraith. I guess it must be the loss of those O linemen & H backs along with coaching that's responsible for our lack of production on O since the 2015 season after all.

    And you are right, there were a lot of good plays the O made in 2015 that I really liked. And they all started with that O line unit, as it always does.

    Well as half has pointed out, 3 of the guys that played on the OL in 2015 are starting for us this year.

    Andy Kwon, Darien Foreman, James Dean, Jeff Ward, and Matt Breida, are all missed. And I'm not sure how healthy Boynton & Culbreth have been this year. The O line unit is totally different than it was in 2015.

    When Coach Summers' staff took over in 2016 & the O line coaching changed, a noticeable difference in our ability to run the ball between the tackles became evident. Scheme changes? Technique changes? Changes in play design & execution?

    And it's gotta be mentioned that not having Kevin Ellison & Favian Upshaw at the quarterback position this year has hurt the run game timing, & the pass game execution that's necessary to keep the D from overplaying the run. Much has changed since the years before 2016 when our inside running game was efficient, & powerful, eaglewraith.
