the ball when we at most had half our defense on the field. Both times they went for 30+ yards and on one of them it was a small miracle we made a play at all given how far out of position we were at the start of the play.
That happened apparently again against NW -- I didn't watch that game. I know UL and USC caught us in transition multiple times.
We would have been better to run a base defense and/or just stay in nickel and only sub on overt opportunities to do that.
