It is shocking how little talent is on this offense. Whether it is throwing, catching, blocking or running; it is all being performed at a less than Pac-10 level. If you have seen any of the other Pac-10 games this weekend, you can see clearly that other than Franklin, these kids don't play on a Pac-10 level. Why are there so may penalties? It's because they know their overmatched. Mostly it's the fact that were shockingly slow. We can't make the blocks and execute the plays. Let's face it, we have guys on schlarship that would be walk-ons at SC. If you are waiting for this group to win games in this conference, you are waiting in vain.
I'm not going to absolve the coaching in this either. Some of these guys played last year and appeared to have potential. Many (the receiving corps) seem to have actually regressed. These people aren't making junior high plays. Some have been calling out the defense. 5 turnovers = 0 offensive touchdowns. That's not a defensive issue. They are average but at least they are Pac-10 worthy.
Once again we are treated to the airshow crash, that is our once again bowl-less season. It's not entertaining, it's not progressing, and it is not winning. Maybe these guys just can't be coached up, but Neuheisel's got to know that this seasons pass expires after we get worked over in the Coliseum. Bruin Nation will not take this abuse of our athletic tradition next season. The pressure is on.
