After Saturday's less-than-perfect (understatement) performance against an over-performing Cal team, I found this nugget in the re-caps:
"It was ripe for the upset," Cal safety Chris Conte said. "We knew that if we came out and executed, this team was very beatable. Watching film,we saw their people making mistakes. We knew if we held them to no big plays, we'd be right in this game. We should have won."
The is a perfect assessment from a player getting ready to play the Ducks. "Watching film, we saw their people making mistakes". WOW, wait until they see the film of yesterdays performance!
The Ducks are making toooooooo many mistakes; missed blocks, penalties, missed tackles, missed assignments.
Don't get me wrong, I Love My Ducks, but this team has plenty of room available to reach their potential and if they continue to make mistakes they are ripe for a capable AZ team (if you thought Tedford was playing dirty wait until a Stoops comes to town!) or a hopped-up-ready-to-play-at-home Beaver team upset.
I loved K's post-game comment when Jorgey told him to enjoy his week off, "we don't have a week off we have lots of work to do!"
Get to work. The NC is in sight but only if we eliminate the mistakes.
