6 Passes and 5 runs. Our offense as a whole was abysmal on 3rd down and it cost us the game.
And what's most telling is that on all of these 3rd downs, it was VERY obvious what play we were going to run: Pass or Run. If I can see it well before the snap, imagine how easy it was for their defensive calls to adjust.

Yep. We should once in a while use a spread formation and runa draw. Or use a goaline and run a play-action.
We should have tried the tazer.....
