I'm suspect of his mash calculator because I ran his recipe through BeerSmith and got way different strike and sparge volumes. I'm not saying that crush isn't a contributing factor, but too much water = low OG.
Not if his final volume is correct.

I can tell that you 90+% of the time that efficiency problems are directly related to poor crush.
My efficiency never seemed to get out of the sixties when I was having my LHBS crush....since I got a mill I'm usually mid seventies. Although as a side note occasionally I do, no sparge batches, with efficiency in the mid fifties to sixties. However, these beers seem to taste fantastic, with more body and mouthfeel. Just an observation. So maybe sometimes we get too tied up with trying to push our efficiency to the limit....
