UCLA at Cal - Animated Drive Chart

The team that makes the fewest mistakes will win.

I thought it appropriate to go with Neyland’s first maxim since this game was nothing, if not a giant mistake. After a start that lived up to our #SoundsLikeBOOM hype, we finish up with two fumbles, four (four?!) interceptions and 12 penalties for 100 yards. o_0

Apparently we’ve never read Neyland’s seven maxims, or if we have they weren’t in our minds last night. Cal tried their best to give the game to us, racking up 100 yards in penalties and 3 turnovers, but we could not capitalize. I mean, c’mon, it’s right there in maxim #2 "Play for and make the breaks and when one comes your way – SCORE."

Anyway, Neyland was also pertinent as the animated drive chart below is from GameDay Depot, which was started by a Tennessee grad, who I think also runs BN's SBN sister site, Rocky Top Talk. Here, in living color, the Shellacking in Strawberry Canyon:

Solid lines are drives, dashed lines are punts. Cal's end zone is lined with with TDs, ours is lined with mistakes. It would be comical if it wasn't so depressing. Pretty damning indictment of our "culture change".

I’ll be at the Utah game, and we should win. Big. And when we do, even if it’s a big win, I won’t be able to take much from it as I know we’ll have a tenacious ASU team (that beat Cal, away) the very next weekend, followed by a tough Arizona team. We sweep the ‘Zona’s? Then maybe I’ll start to believe again. Right now, after that performance, it just looks like the mistakes we’ve tragically come to anticipate from our Bruins.
