In spite of WT3's muff and the blocked punt, special teams were special. Good job to them.
Walter played a fantastic game. His muffed punt was his only mistake all day. Great job by him in coverage. Wish he could've had that pick-six that they called back due to false start (bullshit, might I add.)
As frustrated and disappointed in my man Masoli, the receivers were having their time of the month or something. They can be held accountable as well.
If I were Ed Dickson I would have declared jihad on Jeremiah Masoli by now.
LaMichael was in business today. And business was booming.
The Andre Crenshaw era never arrived and I can't say I'm disappointed we missed the bus on that one.
Masoli's running ability is still intact, which is a plus.
Weird uni combo today. What did you think about it, Tako?
I've already gotten word that Nick disagrees with me on this, but I was impressed with Cain. His game was very similar to Joey Elliott's in that his numbers may have been skewed by his interceptions and his having to throw the ball (and in Cain's case only, play from behind) for most of the game. He looked poised and ready to face the Autzen crowd. His parents did a good job of raising Cain, if you will. They also indeed had a similar HB-screen gameplan, like Purdue's. Purdue executed it more efficiently.
I liked their tailback, Asiata. Cool name too. Maybe it's just that I like linguistics.
Those bullshit timeout-prior-to-snap occurrences got me hopping mad. Kyle Whittingham is a bag of gonorrhea. Yeah, you heard me.
Those consecutive personal fouls on Utah were getting me mad as well. Not good sportsmen. Obvious frustration fouls that I think could have led to more serious action taken - but maybe it was just my angle.
Utah fans are annoying. Except for the ones on SBN.
- I'll get straight to the point here. We won this game in spite of Jeremiah Masoli. Everyone knows I'm a Masoli homer and entirely against seeing a backup QB this early - but Christ, get it together man. I think it is indeed time to drop the gloves and expect much more of him. It's not asking for a Civil War performance day in and day out. It's asking for him to get more accurate now. He's had his preparation games - and today there was no improvement as we'd hoped. His reads were sometimes questionable, and his passes were very inaccurate. The fumble was a bummer but I must say it's not the kind of thing that I think will turn out as a huge problem. The huge problem is his passing game, and it must be dealt with in the coming week.
As always, feel free to tell me exactly where I'm wrong. I'm aware that my judgment is impaired for the timebeing with frustration at a certain polynesian quarterback.
