Just when you think Dorvell couldn’t sound more absurd, they give us more gem to work with. In the latest round of Dorrell’s incompetent coaching staff throwing their players under the bus, Norvell steps in. In Dohn’s report, Norvell pretty much throws his entire offensive unit under the bus (emphasis mine throughout):
In fact, Norvell said the play on which Olson was sacked and suffered a torn knee ligament against Notre Dame could have been avoided.
"It was something that we practiced a lot," Norvell said. "It was their No. 1 thing that they did, and he didn't get out of the play and he wasn't able to protect himself.
"We just have to do a better job. We're going to see pressure from people. We're going to see pressure, and you've got to be able to handle it."
But hey, Coach Karl has some comforting thoughts for all of you! From the same report:
Anyways, moving on here is an update from Coach Karl on our quarterback situation:
"Pat looked good, there were no setbacks with him," Dorrell said.
Asked if Cowan would start, Dorrell said, "We'll see."
Asked who would be next in line, Dorrell said, "We'll see."
Our friends at California Golden Blogs have thrown a bone to all the cultists who have supported this doofus for last few years:
Only if they stepped in few years back and launched a campaign to save Steve Lavin. I am sure at the pace Lavo was going (with his 5 Steve-16s!) he was going to hang banner number 12 sometime by 2010. After all it took Coach Wooden himself 15 somewhat years to bring home number 1!
See its not as bad as we all think.
