In the event that Washington’s football program was Southern California’s football program, it very well may be accurate to say the Huskies got right where they left off last year.
All Southern Cal has done the previous two years is go 10-2 twice in the customary season and afterward beat Michigan 32-18 in the 2006 Rose Bowl and beat Illinois 49-17 in the 2007 Rose Bowl. The Trojans made a trip to Virginia for their opener out and about this year and won effectively, 52-7.
Shockingly for the Washington Huskies, they got right where they left off last season, just it was losing big time by and by in their opener at Oregon. The Ducks dismissed all of Washington’s months-long planning (or absence of groundwork) for the game, winning 44-10 while stacking up 496 yards of offense.
So what would it be a good idea for us to have anticipated? Last year Oregon beat Washington 55-34, and the Ducks won 34-14, 45-21 and 31-6 in the earlier three trips, giving Oregon a 5-match dominate streak over Washington, the longest sequential butt-kicking in a series that began in 1900.
So what were the significant positives for Washington Huskies Saturday night? Indeed, they discovered Eugene, the displayed for the game as expected, and they had their regalia on accurately.
When they hit the Autzen Stadium turf, Washington’s vaunted hostile line was obviously missing, influencing their new-look running match-up as evident rookie starter Chris Polk acquired 19 yards on 14 conveys, and sophomore Brandon Johnson acquired 13 yards on 7 conveys.
Polk might be quick, Polk might be tricky, however the Duck protectors had positively no issue finding and handling him. Chris Polk took in a great deal about the genuine experience contrast between secondary school football and Pac 10 football out and about against a quality group in an antagonistic arena. Basically Duck Nation was not tossing bottles at the Huskies. ป๊อกเด้ง เรียง
Redshirt sophomore quarterback Jake Locker, Washington’s significant hostile danger, was kept under control by Oregon’s guard. At the point when it got evident that there would be no Husky passing assault in light of a ton of dropped balls and freshness, Oregon had the option to stack the crate with a bigger number of players than chocolates in a See’s treats box. The Duck protective auxiliary is so acceptable they can play one man to another inclusion, permitting now and again 8 protectors close to the line of scrimmage.
Poor Jake Locker. He must be glancing near and seeing that he had less help around him than last year when the Huskies went 4-9 and were dead rearward in the Pac 10.
The Huskies have 24 valid or redshirt rookies in the group, two of them-5-foot-11, 200-pound running back Chris Polk and 6-foot-4, 260-pound protective lineman Senio Kelemete-began against Oregon.
Polk and Kelemete were among 8 genuine rookies who played their first school football match-up Saturday night. The others were 6-foot, 185-pound wide beneficiary Devin Aguilar, 6-foot-1, 180-pound wide collector Jermaine Kearse, 5-foot-8, 161-pound wide recipient Jordan Polk (no evident connection to Chris Polk), 6-foot-5, 255-pound tight end Kavario Middleton (he got 4 passes for 35 yards), 6-foot-2, 348-pound protective lineman Alameda Ta’amu, and 6-foot-6, 255-pound cautious end Everette Thompson.
The reality to the game: Oregon’s players were more capable, significantly more gifted and a whole lot all the more quicker. As Washington’s previous, incredible mentor Don James used to say, “Speed kills.”
What’s more, don’t you simply love mentor Ty Willingham’s remark after the calamity, “This was one that we didn’t expect.” This, following 4 years of beatings and 9 months to get ready for the Ducks. Willingham has the character of an ashtray and the feeling to coordinate.
You can generally depend on Ty to give you a shocker of a statement after a game. Different top choices are “We played truly hard” or “We thought we got an opportunity to dominate this football match” or “We thought we were in this game.”
Washington’s next rival? I figured you needed more interest to inquire. Take a stab at facilitating No. 16-positioned Brigham Young (BYU), the double cross shielding Mountain West Conference champions and proprietors of the country’s longest series of wins (11 games after its initial game 41-17 triumph more than 1-AA Northern Iowa).
Washington should disturb Brigham Young, accepting that pigs fly. After the Huskies lose to BYU and Oklahoma, they will be 0-3 when they start their Pac 10 gathering play against Stanford.
