Ding ding ding....
The MAIN takeaway coming out of the UNC game was that our defense was gassed. That was the absolutely main takeaway that everyone in the world came away with.
So what do you think would have happened if we had run a hurry up offense???
We won very comfortably and the game was never in question.
We go hurry up in that game and you are much more likely to have injuries and to get beat late in the game. Our defense could barely make it out of the game as it was already.
But then vs Vandy, we did run a tempo offense on a few occasions (It wasn't just when Dylan was in the game).
Spurrier plans each game to give us the best chance to win that game.
That is much more effective than a team like UNC who can only go one style regardless of the opponent.
