VERY concerned about our offensive line and running game.

 

After barely running the football against ULM and Charleston Southern I was convinced it was gamesmanship from Jimbo Fisher, protecting our run schemes from Oklahoma's coaching staff. Surely we're holding back, protecting our looks (and our running backs) to unload on Oklahoma.

Except that, well, we didn't run tonight either. 26 carries total, half of which belonged to scrambling EJ and running-for-his-life Clint Trickett.

So what gives here? 

I realize Fahrenkrug and Stork are relatively new and need time to adjust. But now we've played two cupcakes and an elite team and haven't successfully run the football against any of them. It seems pretty obvious there is a problem.

The young receiver corps is looking outstanding, and the line did a pretty great job tonight (all things considered) protecting EJ and Clint in the pass game. Early on we did a good job using the tight ends, too.

But the run...I mean...why can't we run?
