    The downside to uptempo.

    When an offense goes up-tempo, the defense pays the price. Not just the opposing defense, either. The defenses at Arizona and No. 2 Oregon are playing 82 and 76 plays, respectively, per game. The wear-and-tear is exacting a toll in mid-November. The Ducks are playing freshmen on their defensive line, and Arizona is playing four walk-ons and two true freshmen on its defense. They are playing because that’s who’s healthy.

    This makes a very valid point. Colorado also epitomized that. Look at time of possession in that game. A tired defense that is force to make more plays while undermanned will be an uphill challenge. As RR and Casteel get their players it will be less of an issue, but this year it is being exposed dramatically.
