Default Why did I miss my OG?

My newbie question of the day:

A recipe building site indicated my barleywine would have an OG of 1.126, actual was 1.106. Boil of 6 gallons.

What was most likely cause of being that far off? Lack of boil off? I have missed before, but understood why (topping off).

This brew went really well, chilled to around 70-71 and took reading directly from brew pot via spigot.

Full boil? If it was it's a lack of boil off/to high a pre boil volume thing.
