I believe you are correct. 4 penalties on the 1st drive and we still kicked a FG. The reason for our somewhat dismal performance was the O-line and Special Teams, specifically the kicker. It says a lot when a true FR tackle (Teddy) is pushing his way up the depth chart towards other 2-3 year FR. Patience is what is needed just not sure how much patience is left for Frost from the administration. I actually like the way Frost is calling the offense this year. More TE, moving Teddy to a blocking TE, trying to establish a running game, throwing more downfield, etc. Only took him until his 4th year but he finally swallowed some pride and realized Oregon/UCF offense wouldn't work 100% in the B1G.Might I add that I do not believe penalties stalled a single drive (there may have been one drive stalled but not important enough for me to do the research). Now I am not saying that we don't need to clean them up but it bewilders me when I see people say that penalties costed us that game. Yes, I understand more plays were needed but we were not halted by penalties.
