You see it in school football match-ups each Saturday - missed tasks, missed handles, players giving themselves wholeheartedly to sprinters and trusting they will tumble down.
Prepare to have your mind blown. The sprinters don't tumble down so much any longer. They are greater, a lot greater, quicker, more grounded and more subtle.
So for what reason don't more school players square up and tackle sprinters? The appropriate response is basic - such a large number of them are too sluggish or too distracted in filling their hole task and additionally they are terrified to handle.
The net consequence of the entirety of this is the thing that we saw last end of the week. The 7 most noteworthy scoring games delivered 703 absolute focuses, or a normal of 100 or more focuses per game. This might be invigorating, however it is terrible football.
So how awful would it be able to get? This awful:

So you saw a great deal of offense, inferior guard, and not a ton decent, strong football. Tension? There was basically none. It was simply a question of who had the ball dropping down the field with little obstruction.
Not to exhaust you, but rather to come to a meaningful conclusion:
The best 5 scoring offenses in the nation are Oregon (54+ focuses per game), Boise State (47+), Oklahoma State (46+), Nevada (44+), and Stanford (42+).
The most noticeably awful 5 scoring protections in the nation are Eastern Michigan (surrenders 43+ focuses per game), Memphis (42+), New Mexico (42+), East Carolina (41+), and Louisiana-Lafayette (40+).
This is only a tad of an issue for a terrible group like the Eastern Michigan Eagles, who surrender 43+ focuses per game and just score a normal of 19+ focuses per game. No big surprise they are just 1-8 on the season. They figured out how to beat Ball State 41-38 in additional time.
