  1. I was in the southwest corner of the stadium down fairly low. I remember looking over my left shoulder to the northwest...the sky was almost black and I watched the Goodyear blimp drop "below" the rim of the stadium (not really that low...but even from my viewpoint it was LOW) and then it came roaring back up into view with what sounded like absolute max power. He probably got caught in a downdraft. I wonder how close he came to treetop level. A couple minutes later, we were getting pounded by rain. It was a little scary at the time...even though my judgement may have been clouded by imported refreshments...but we damn sure didn't leave.
  2. Before then we had poor old Tahj Shamsid-Deen, but he couldn't catch a break from all those shoulder injuries. I recall he was pretty good and had potential
  3. We thought it was a catch too, but after watching the replays on the Jumbotron, it looked like his left elbow hit the ground out of bounds simultaneously with the catch.
  4. I watched the game on TV and don’t know much about the X’s and O’s like you guys, but it seemed to me that Samir was complaining a lot to the officials. His “posture” seemed like he would dwell on what he thought were bad calls. To me, I think he should let coach and the fans give an earful to the refs and he should move on, the young guys need to see positive leadership from the veterans. Just my uneducated opinion.
  5. 30-17 Auburn. They score first but we keep pounding the line until they start giving up more yardage each play and we pull away. Not a pretty win but a win.
  6. On first down after Big Kat's return, I saw what to my amateur eyes were maybe two chances that may have helped us score. First, I think had Eli not tried to juke #51, but keep full speed, he may have had a better chance to make him miss and get the corner. But that's in instinct thing for Eli in a millisecond and you can't fault him for trying according to his instincts. Second, had we not flipped ball to Eli but instead given to Worm on the QB "read", I like Worm's chances to get to the pylon even with two unblocked defenders, he had a full head of steam. I will say that watching in person, I thought Oregon had a lot more speed than I expected. Will be interesting to see how their season plays out.
  7. Jalen Harris just caught a TD for his first reception at Colorado
  8. Star plays closer to the line of scrimmage, so gotta keep the pad level lower...
  9. With all these new strategies deployed by the ducks, sure would be nice to have a couple of timely "missed assignments" that we capitalize upon...
  10. I think it’s going to be a sloppy game, offenses are going to struggle. I’m going to predict three keys that help us win the battle for field position: 1. Siposs keeps them pinned deeper, he averages 41 vs their guy’s 37. 2. Their kickers were 6 of 11 on FGs with none even attempted over 49 yds, 23 touchbacks on about 60 kickoffs. Carlson was much more accurate close in (12 of 15 inside of 50 yds) and was 51 of 70 touchbacks. 3. Nix’s legs will move the chains a few key times in the game, Herbert isn’t a huge run threat. Auburn 23 Oregon 17
  11. Still mad about the no call pass interference by FSU in the Sugar Bowl Go to 1:28:00 on the video
  12. Merriweather-Lewis is gonna end up between Washington and Oregon.
  13. A couple of minor points IMO. The play of the game was harper’s 4 point play in the first half. We were in trouble until then and at risk of getting buried. That play gave us a boost and started our comeback. Secondly, I believe there was some impact on Washington when Samir pointed out his bleeding leg at the free throw line in OT. Little thing that threw his concentration off and he missed the 2nd free throw.
