I think there were unique factors this year...

In trying to rebuild a culture of physical and mental toughness, it was probably necessary for Kelly to keep his foot on the gas early (all the "domination" talk) more than usual.

It was also necessary to win early in order to rebuild program credibility, particularly for recruiting.

And then we had the toughest November schedule I can remember in quite a while, with particularly bad timing of the Navy game.

How all this translates to slamming into a wall in the second half against Wake and never recovering, I don't know. But to the extent pacing was an issue, I think it just wasn't an option this year.
