Mo(o)re running, please.
Edit: wanted to acknowledge that the 2nd down call at the 11-yard line was not a designed pass play. It was a QB draw. Still a questionable decision, but not as egregious as I originally thought.
Forgot how awesome that Williams INT was, dude was FLYING
Nice title! I think your summary is now the dominant viewpoint by Cal fans. Had we kept running the ball I think we would have won by at least ten points.
I'm still hopeful about the TCU game. But I'm really im;pressed with Patterson's overall coaching record at TCU. Actually, pretty phwnomL. Wonder where he ranks versus coaches who have coached at their current FBS school for five or more years, counting al years coached at the current school (low total years to get lots of potential coaches considered ). I guess Patterson should easily be in the top ten. The only coach in the Pac 12 that I think qualifies at coaching at their current school is Kyle Whittington, from Utah, who is 135–66, not very near Patterson's 179–74. Maybe the Oregon St. coach, but did not check. Did jusT check Clay Helton at USC. He has been there six yearS and his record is 46–23.
Oh man. I remember that Nevada game ball/scholarship vid. It hadn't clicked with me that it was *that* kicker. Wonder if Wilcox had seen that clip... he tried to played the numbers and lost. Next time, bet on your defense, Wilcox...
The one thing I didn't like about that goal-to-go series where we went backwards is I think we had empty sets on those plays (definitely the 2nd down play where Garbers ran for minimal gain). We weren't even threatening the thing that had gotten us down the field in the first place (handoffs to the RBs).
Baffling...when Musgrave is asked whether UN did anything differently after the 1st Qt. to alter what Cal did Offensively! Also, a question why the tight-ends were barely used! Doesn't instill a lot of confidence in our OC!
A reply comment to an "observation" by Coach Wilcox on another website.
"We only ran nine plays in the second quarter. We didn't really run many plays at all, whether it's run or pass," noted Wilcox."
Very poor logic and very deceiving because Wilcox (purposely) did not say what the nine plays were. The reason we only ran nine plays in the second quarter is because most of them were ;probably pass plays. If we have had six or seven run plays in Q2 we might have had run at least twenty plays in the second quarter BECAUSE WE WOULD HAVE MADE A LOT OF FIRST DOWNS! Probably would have scored at least one TD.
