Morons On Both Sides

The Sleeping Beauty has been crowing since Saturday:

"I think our preparation was really key," Coach Karl Dorrell said of the offensive line's blocking, which helped produce 333 yards rushing. "We stepped that up, compared with the past week and previous games. The coaches did a thorough job in getting things fixed. That has to carry over week to week and it was good to see the production."
I guess Getting things "fixed" means overlooking racking up stupid penalties after stupid penalties approaching 100 yards. And, uhm it is not hard to look "prepared" against the worst defense in the Pac-10 and it is not that hard to look "prepared" against a Husky defense coached by a "moron":
UW was terrible almost the entire night on offense, but in the third quarter the Huskies intercepted a pass and returned it to the Bruin 20. Jake Locker made a strike to the end zone, and suddenly with Pat Cowen out, the Huskies were ready to deliver a knockout blow to the Bruins. UW was only down 7 at this point and had total momentum while Pat Cowan was crying on the sidelines. The Bruins were suddenly down to a non scholarship QB with no experience to finish the game.

Kent Baer who was out coached the entire evening put his team in an improper alignment that allowed the Bruins to score from their 28 on a 72 yard touchdown by Chris Markey. The alignment was beyond total stupidity because all the Huskies had to do at this point was play as they had all night, and that was 10 yards off the line because the kid couldn't make a play if he tried. Baer panicked, didn't use reason, and abandoned the game plan that had gotten him to this point. If Baer was going to get aggressive he should have done it two quarters earlier when he had a fresh defense. At this point of the game he had a fatigued defense that had been out on the field all night long....what a total moron.
Looks like we don’t have a monopoly on morons in the Pac-10. Who knew? I didn’t. I had a pretty good idea that Huskies were going to be an awful football team. But Saturday for Husky fans was beyond embarrassing. I guess they know what we have been feeling – dealing with a moron – since the Sleeping Beauty’s arrival at UCLA.
