What teams average less than 5 yards per attempt? I think even Charlotte averages that. I would be surprised if there were a handful of teams that average less than a first down every 2 passing attempts. When you throw the ball 50 times, it is hard not to throw for 300 yards, it would take true ineptness. FWIW, we averaged 10 yards per pass attempt vs. FIU.

We gave up 23 points until a garbage time TD got it to 27. That is good enough to win with a competent offense.

I agree that if we eliminate all the good things we did, we probably lose.

Look at the play-by-play.

The game was still on the line. There was no garbage time. 07-coffee3

Truth. I was pretty darn nervous we were going to choke it away when we didnt recover the onside kick.

How did that work out for them? Up 14 with 20 seconds left is garbage time.
