        Other good things include:

        Great D in the 1st half.

        Sacks were great.

        Rising looked sharp in the first half.

        Bad things:

        Kuithe injury is a huge blow to this team.  Very sad for him.

        Special teams kickoff coverage is terrible.

        Red zone offense was a joke.

        Too many dropped balls by the receivers.

        Rushing offense against a terrible D did not look good.  It really hasn’t looked good all season.

        Backup defenders are just not good.

        I am not pleased overall with our play.  We need to play better if we want to win next week.  We have a lot of issues that OSU can exploit.

        I particularly share your opinion of the rushing offense. The O’line did not open the holes I expected tonight. I don’t remember more than a handful of rushes where the runningback didn’t have to deal with the first level. Perhaps I’ve expected too much. It’s been hard not to compare with last season and expect a prolific offense. I have to keep reminding myself that every season is a new team but I still think there’s so much to build upon – even without Kuithe.

        I hope this group continues to improve – especially the rushing offense and red zone offense.

        On to Oregon State. It’s going to be a good one.

          We lead the pac 12 in rushing yards per game. “Hasn’t looked good all season” I’m sorry 208 rushing yards is not good enough for you 😂

            The statistics look good but I’m just not seeing the gashing runs we saw frequently last season. I may be expecting too much. Of course, there is plenty of time for context to settle in.

            All I can write in my defense is the old Majerus quote – “statistics are like bikinis, they reveal as much as they conceal.”

        What kind of an assessment is that?

        205 yards rushing on 45 attempts with a 4.6 yard averge (with the#1 RB sitting for a half+).


        Pretty sure the coaches will take that any day of the week.
