No... Dak was phenomenal.
Moore gets a C+. His pass heavy gameplan was good, but running Zeke into a pile on 3rd and short goal line yardage with a bad blocking tight end was... putrid.
Actually I would have preferred it if he DID run Zeke straight ahead on that play. The play you're referencing was an option pitch.. IMHO a toss sweep would have been a better call as it would have allowed Zeke forward momentum when receiving the ball as opposed to moving backward/sideways as the play called for. But he has to be more decisive in that situation. He took too long to recognize that the DB had inside out leverage and he was not going to be able make the edge.. By the time he realized it the guy was on him. Poor block (and I lose the term loosely) by Jarwin but also a poor read by Zeke. Poor personnel group having Jarwin in there instead of Schultz .. The one thing I WILL kill Moore for is that he never came back to the "student body left" sweep that went for 13 yards in the 2nd quarter.. Or was that the third.. He motioned Schultz in to be the lead blocker and everybody went and got a man and Zeke turned on the jets to get to the edge. We never saw that play again.. Why not? I mean the guards were not blocking them biguns anyway so why not just pull them and let them clear a path for the runners? Suh and Vea aint runnin nobody down on a sweep..
