I am not going to try to give any possible explanation as a fan who was only able to listen to the game and also because there are so many variables that could have taken place and any comments bashing any particular person would be premature. So what I will say is what a Crazy week! Texas getting clobbered by UCLA? Oklahoma and Alabama hold on in the last seconds. Tressel scoring in the 70s? Like all fans this game was very unsettling to me. I am gonna hope it was a fluke (which will hopefully help us from looking past future teams that could beat us when we are playing with 1% effort) and get ready to cheer for my huskers against Kansas st in a week and a half.
I was watching the highlights from the game. On that INT that went for a TD (called back), Martinez had the back wide open. That will show up on film. He has to understand that he has a huge advantage if he does not find a receiver open: RUN! I know other teams are going to watch this film. We need to get ready. Panic button: not yet. Concerned button: definitely
And why the hell are we in 3rd and 5+ yards all of the time against this team?!
We were in 3rd and long the entire game because the OL was getting pushed back on every play and the SDSU penetration was leading to a lot of tackles behind the line of scrimage. Oh yeah, T-Mart also kept throwing the ball at everyone's feet.
