Why is it that Nevada has been able to recover only 2 of it's 14 forced fumbles?
Well we think this actually isn't that difficult to answer. No it's not rotten luck, although often times it feels like it.
Nevada's defense in general this season has not "swarmed" to the football. There are a lot of times that the defensive front is penetrating up field past where the fumble may occur and the defensive secondary is spread out all over the field. Not a lot of gang tackling taking place this season. You have to have players (outside of the guy forcing the ball out) around the football in order for one of them to fall on it.
