Steckel's Thinking

Conventional wisdom going into the game: Auburn lives and dies by the run. The way to beat Auburn is to make them throw. Sell out to stop to the run.

Missouri never stacked the box. They didn't sell out to stop the run, despite getting repeatedly gashed.

In my opinion, Steckel's decision to defy conventional wisdom and stick with a balanced defense (don't divert defensive assets from pass defense) single-handedly cost Missouri a spot in the BCS Championship game.

I am not an X&O mastermind. I could easily be wrong. Explain why.
