actually it does...Gore's mentality is to just plow ahead and take whatever yards are there even if they aren't any, when do you ever see him bounce a run to the outside or reverse field?
Dixon has happy feet because he's always looking to break off a big run...of course we're trying to coach that out of him, but that's his natural instinct. The reason our offense bogged down was because we didn't have any explosive plays, and you won't get any by running into the pile every time like Gore, unless there are actually holes there, which there weren't.
