How did we get worked over by BYU? Please explain. They were in our backfield all game? 1 sack and we averaged 6.3 yards per carry running for nearly 270 yards? A team can't dominate winning 17-14, but we controlled the trenches in that game. Same for BC.
Nobody claimed that we dominated in the trenches in every game. You are blowing one safety struggling on one workout in the Combine way out of proportion. Going toe-to-toe with Stanford is to me the most important thing we did all season. I think that Alabama showed that there is still another step to take, but ND did well in the trenches in '12.
EDIT: I also didn't see the post including the word "dominate" before See's edit. I would definitely not agree that we have consistently dominated in the trenches since 2011.
