“I go back and say again, we talked about it the other day, it’s simple: Don’t turn the ball over, be more explosive, and win two-minute, all right?” Smart said. “Those are three really critical factors. We’ve got to be more explosive.”
“The runs that we have, there were about six or seven runs in there that were over 10 yards that I would argue could be home runs if one more guy gives a little more effort and gives a little more blocking,” Smart said.
“You’ve got to be able to be more explosive when you get an opportunity to do that. And you’ve got to win two-minute in games. And you can’t turn it over.”
It’s simple, indeed. When receivers blocking downfield gets a mention and getting receivers open downfield doesn’t, that should tell you all you need to know about what he thinks needs fixing.
Manball can’t fail; it can only be failed. Win those battles, boys!
