It's half time in Tempe and the Bruins are up by a score 21-17 against a 5-2 Arizona State team. The game got off to a nightmarish start with another surreal mistake by Steve Manfro. The kid shouldn't return any more punt returns this season and the coaching staff bears a huge responsibility for putting him in there after all his mistakes.
All that stated we have to give a lot of credit to our Bruins for the way they have fought back after falling back 0-14 thanks to the running of Jet Ski, steady leadership of Brett Hundley, behind solid play of our young offensive line. Perhaps the absence of Will Sutton who didn't dress for the game has something to do with it. Except for Arizona State's second drive, the defense also has looked pretty solid. Here is the box score.
Lot is riding in this second half for Mora and the Bruins. Hopefully we close out strong in the remaining 30 minutes. If we can take care of business the team will be well set up for the stretch run.
