It sure is good to hear some bellyachin' about the team after a WIN! This tells me that expectations are ratcheting up. Example, why can't the defense be more consistent? K-State scored 9 points. At the beginning of the game if someone said we would hold them to nine we all would have taken it. We had a gameplan that wouldn't expose our young corner to big plays and...it worked! Example 2, The offense operates in fits and bursts. There is a plan here Bruin Fans. CNC gameplans for his offense to create opportunities with a low risk/reward because A) He knows his personnel and what their strengths and limitations are, B) He knows that it is the efficiency of his offense that is important. Defense and Special teams can win games if you don't turn the ball over.
College football is an emotional game and we have a very young team. I think the coaches did a great job of getting the win against an inferior opponent after a highly emotional road game. This could have been the type of trap game that felled $UC's team. Instead were 3-0 going into a bye-week. Our next opponent will be occupied with the media and the great Jake Locker and the chance to lead the conference. If they beat Washington our team will be sky high for this game, rested and rearmed.
I would like to give a shout out to a couple of players; Nelson Rosarios' catch on the sidelines with one hand almost made me drop the binoculars. ATV was money all game and let's not forget J. Franklin; the only thing that puzzles me about him is why he hasn't got to the house with a real long gainer yet. He has that kind of speed.
In conclusion, it was a take care of business game that, in the past, may have been a problem. This year, not so much...
Why not us? Why not now?
