Because I asked about the defense missing assignments, not the offense. Since you asked though, Venables and Brewer, in the video above, said there were missed assignments in the game against the #####. Venables even said that on 3rd and 16 he dropped 8 and Ace Sanders was wide open for a 34 yard TD. That's 8 covering 5 and he was wide open. Guess why. That's right... missed assignment. There was another play you may remember. On 3rd and 19 Shaw ran 20 yards. He was able to do this because we were in man coverage. I don't know for sure, but I'm willing to bet Venables called man because it's the only way he could guarantee there wouldn't be a man running down the middle of the field wide open. I believe Venables and Brewer pointed out that if they had done their job they might have gotten USuC off the field and our offense could have possibly gotten in a rythm. No, it wasn't entirely the defenses fault, but USuC had the ball almost 20 minutes longer than we did and missed assigments was a big reason why.
