    If Tech stole one thing from FAU's playbook...

    For me it would be the up tempo offense inside the 10 yard line. If you look at FAU's conference games they've gone up tempo inside the opponents 10-yard line and have had enormous success with it. They don't allow defenses the chance to adjust or in some cases get set properly.

    Tech's conversion rate in the red zone has now fallen to around 50%. And as others have pointed out we now lead the nation in FG attempts. At this point, anything is worth a try.

    Play uptempo the who GAME!

    If we scored a TD on every FG attempt in the first half, the score could have been tied at 42. I know that's not how it works in real life, but playing Kiffin, you can't kick FGs.

    We used to when Skip first arrived. What happened???????? Is it our youth, recruiting or coaching or yes to all? It seems like potentially yes to all.

    They have also perfected the block-by-tackle scheme. How many holding calls did they get? any? (Not that it mattered)
    We need to learn the art. We look like we are playing by 1950's rules. Apparently, our D-line hasn't been coached how to shed such either.

    I liked how they scored touchdowns... Haven't seen many of those this year. I would definitely take the touchdowns!
