Mid-season assessment

Last weekend's Cal game was a microcosm of this season. Everything good and bad, all in one game.

You know we'll be able to count on these guys:


Jeff Locke is key to field position strategy

For the season, Jeff Locke has a long of 77 (ranked 1st) while averaging 46.1 yards per punt (ranked 12th), with 10 of 29 inside the 20. 14 of 33 kickoffs have resulted in touchbacks.


Kai Forbath knocks in another field goal

Meanwhile, while we really hate to see him so often, Kai Forbath leads the nation with 17 field goals made and percentage (94.4%).

Unfortunately, we haven't made the plays we've needed to make.


Nelson Rosario has a TD slip through his fingers

 


Randall Carroll ties to make a tough catch

 


Terrence Austin stretches in vain

We need to see more of these kinds of plays on a consistent basis:


Johnathan Franklin blasts through a hole for a TD

 


No catching Johnathan Franklin as he runs 74 yards for a TD

No need for photos regarding our defense; that would be too painful.

Let's take a deep breath and look for second half of the season improvements starting with the Wildcats.

Go Bruins!
