This year, we are striving for better yards after contact. I think that ISU's previous coach downplayed YAC because it was an opportunity for turnovers - and we did have a lot of fumbles after contact. Even in the NFL, you see guys like Jerry Rice who catch and fall down before getting hit. Is there a double-edged sword involved with YAC? How does someone know when an extra defender might go for a strip? Is there judgement involved by the ball carrier (mainly one-on-one situations)? Or is a safer technique taught for holding on after contact?
