LOL at all the hand wringing.

I thought this was a 9 win team going into tonight. I'm more bullish now. This is a significantly better team than last year.

Utah did nothing tonight. Played a base defense. Ran a vanilla offense. They did not stunt. They did not twist. The rarely blitzed and the coverage was basic.

They did nothing offensively to give film other than show THAT THEY HAVE A DOWN FIELD THROW GAME. Now TDS has to worry about that.

The 3 disappointments..... The offensive line. The offensive line. And Joe Williams (mainly because of the o line).

The positives.... T Williams looked great. The receivers looked good. Mitch Thepunternowski had an average punt of 55 yards!!!! He almost had an all-time record average!!!!

All is well. This looked like the spring scrimmage.

Puget Ute icon NEW: We also saw some 2-back sets. That was nice. We can do a ton of damage from that set, particularly if we can set up Troy McCormick for a wheel route. That could be deadly.

PDXUtefan icon NEW: Don't listen to the Whitt post-game then, he was pretty pissed at the offense and o-line for executing poorly in critical moments.

o NEW: The offensive problems start and end with the o line. They were poor. But I don't think it's talent. I think it's mental primarily. (nm)

Puget Ute icon NEW: The difference between most players on an FCS team and an FBS team is marginal. Our players are a bit stronger, a bit faster, a bit quicker, and can probably lift a bit more than the players on SUU's team. They also have fewer scholarships available.

o NEW: A team's "vanilla" offense is a good 75+% of its offense. You might get a few sprinkles (trick plays and additional misdirection), but it doesn't turn into Chocolate with Peanut Butter Swirls.
