It was pretty obvious on the replay of the long back-breaking run, that the safety in the middle of the field made a late decision to run to the outside at an eligible receiver probably assuming it was a pass play. I don't think that was a called decision, but instead a bad read on the play.
However, we are applying some revisionist history when we say the same record as Graham. Graham finished 8-5 his first year and won his bowl game decisively with a sophomore quarterback. I know that Graham was 7-6 in his last season, but I think we have to compare apples to apples. Some may say Graham was given more talent from the preceding staff, but I think that is certainly debatable. I don't think he had any first round NFL talent on his first team.
That being said I do like the present recruiting trajectory and hope that can give us a year like Graham's second year next year. I just hope we can finish all four quarters of that bowl game.
