It’s time to get the answers to the questions Bruin fans have had for a long time.
What effect will the new coaches have on the offense? Can a different offensive line coach get better performances out of the offensive line? Can the offensive line keep Josh Rosen upright? Can the running backs do a better job running the football? Can Rosen’s arm deliver a better performance than his mouth? Will the offense be good, just passable or as bad as last year? Can the Bruins win with a solid defense and passable offense? How long will it take before Jim Mora gets testy with the media?
We may not get answers to all of these questions today or the answers that we do get may not be complete answers, but today is the day when we will finally start to get the answers we’ve waited for since the end of last season.
Of course, the team could end up generating a whole new set of questions that we can’t yet anticipate. But that’s why they play the games and it’s why we tailgate. After all, as one of my friends is fond of saying, “I’ve been to a lot of bad football games, but I’ve never been to a bad tailgate.”
Let’s look at the weather conditions that teams will deal with.
Game Time Weather Forecast
According to Weather.com, it should be partly to mostly cloudy in Pasadena all day today. At game time, look for it to be mostly cloudy and about 87 degrees at kickoff with a 15% chance of precipitation and 48% humidity.
As the game goes on, look for the temperature to drop and the humidity to rise. It should be about 82 degrees at halftime with the humidity climbing to 57%, but still a 15% chance of rain.
By the end of the game, the temperature will have dropped into the upper 70s with 64% humidity and still a 15% chance of precipitation.
So, it appears that the more than 50% chance of rain has dissipated and it’s now likely that my rule will still apply: It doesn’t rain inside the Rose Bowl.
