People underestimate the impact of losing Short in the Yale game. The center calls the plays for the line, but he foremost must get the ball to the QB consistently. We had more fumbled snaps this year than I can ever remember–high, low, left, right. With a young QB, having to worry where the ball will be has an impact, as well as messing up the timing with the RBs. For that reason, and the problems experienced earlier in the season, I don’t know why we didn’t have Shaf go under center. It cost us the Holy Cross game, imo, by not being able to hit the quick opener at the goal line. Holes opened, but the backs couldn’t get there quick enough. If you don’t have a rock solid center, you have problems at the get-go.
