I think we all know that games are lost through those three factors. It would be very nice to find out if the inverse is true.

I'm going to research this one... but before I do I'll go out on a limb and say that in our 10-win seasons we were able to:
+Match opponents' explosive plays, and win TD turnover battle (by a lot) in 2008
+exceed our opponents' explosive plays and marginally win the turnover battle in 2013.

Focus this year was on Football, back to the format as originally conceived. I though it worked well. Bailiff did have good things to say about Pera in response to a question about bball

I bet you're right. We have never been much good at avoiding explosive plays during the Bailiff regime. To do really well, we have had to squeak by with our own explosiveness and winning the turnover battle.

With a few exceptions (1980, 1994 come to mind), our vulnerability to explosive plays has predated Coach Bailiff by decades. (2004 @ SJSU as a oft-cited example)

Losing that game still rankles me.

Three of the biggest factors, IMO:

1) Our top running back was held out due to a team infraction/discipline ... and the second fellow ran so much (successfully for quite a while) that he got physically sick on the sideline. Our potent running offense, running on only one depthless cylinder, pooped out in 4Q.

2) Hatfield continued to hand SJSU great field position with short, pooch kickoffs, of which we had many.

3) Late in 4Q, one of our DBs intercepted -- rather than batted down -- a long 4th down Hail Mary pass. This gave us terrible field position, we went 3-and-out, and the Spartans got the ball with a short field and quickly scored the winning (or tying, I forget) TD.

Grrr.

Any reports from the San Antonio Coaches' Caravan last night? Anyone ask about the QB situation heading into the fall?

We scored 63. The option offense was potent. It just got harder to stock the talent.

I was at the Austin stop. Good crowd, Andrew Sendejo and Taylor McHargue were in the building.

Bailiff mostly talked about graduating players and turning them into fine, upstanding men. The coordinators were cool, and despite my better judgment, they kinda got me pumped for the upcoming season.

Coach Lynch said the offense will rely on a lot of pre-snap "smoke and mirrors" to keep the opposition off-balance. Regarding the QB situation, Lynch said it'll sort itself out in two-a-days and that the QB will mostly be a game manager anyway. Ball protection was stressed.

Pretty jazzed about the shift to 3-4. Coach Stewart mentioned our depth on DL and in the secondary, though admitted we're thin at LB. Said there wouldn't be any explosive (25+ yard) plays given up over/through the middle.
