Reports on today's scrimmage reports are rolling in the message boards one by one, and its not a pretty picture. Kevin Brown, one of our best DL went down with a high ankle sprain and will be out for 6-8 weeks. Not good for a unit which gave up most rushing yards in the Pac-10 last season.
As for the offense, the reports are not very encouraging. It sounds like the same old shit. From PaliBruin:
More on the offense from one of KD's most severe critics, MANTIS9:
BO also found Marcedes twice for tds, DO is still looking for him after 3 years...In these odd games, you can't tell if a play is made because the defense is so bad or the offense is actually good. Neither did much to knock your socks off.
Watch out in the punting game--Perez is SLOW getting the ball off..look for him to become block fodder when they come at him at real speed...and his kicks are all over the place, only one really sailing with hang time authority (this was a 5 star recruit?)Medlock hit a 49 yarder FG, but his kick-offs fell far short of the goal-line--what gives?
London made some good sticks..Joe Cowan looked stronger (I believe that was he who made a TD out of a bad pass that was tipped (from DO) ..Kevin Brown going down a MAJOR BUMMER...there's nobody else like him...
sat there marveling how little a dent 640 pounds of 6'7" Cleary and 6'9" Blanton seems to make at the line of scrimmage..or is the defense that good-----nah....this should have been a coming out party for Derrick Williams, who instead was under indefinite suspension, and the receivers in general seem to be in receivership...(like bankrupt)
As we have said over and over here before ... WE ARE NOT IN THE MOOD FOR ANY EXCUSES FROM DORRELL ... HE HAS TO WIN 9 GAMES (INCLUDING ENDING THE STREAK AGAINST USC). IF DORRELL CANNOT PRODUCE A 9 WIN SEASON THIS YEAR, HE NEEDS TO GET OUT OF WESTWOOD. NO EXCUSES.
