BruinVol tries so hard to be negative, but the thing about it, is if he wanted to be critical of our defense for our opponent's 3rd down conversion success .... I would agree with the guy. That is a legitimate area of concern. We used to talk about 3rd and Chavis. 3rd and Banks makes me long for those days.Other than scoring only 13 on the road (and in the rain) against the best defense in the country (a team that hasn't been beaten in three years), we scored no fewer than 31 points in any game (no fewer than 38 in SEC play).
If we're looking to close a gap, our 3rd-and-long conversion rate just isn't where it's at.
