I would still say the crux of the issue

By: Wac12

is still the fact that the line just doesn't get the push it needs, when it needs it.  Same thing happened at ND and even against Western Michigan last season.  300lb guys are tougher to push back than 280lb guys. 

Until the P12 as a whole starts recruiting linemen on both sides of the ball that are on par with the SEC, they're gonna continue to get pushed around in the big games.  Every P12 team should be setting up satellite camps on the Islands and get these kids playing young.  Call it "community outreach".
