The only thing that concerns me is that our RUNNING game may score too quickly and Goff & co. will get back on the field too often.
Also I predict at least 1 pick six or scoop and score, and I predict it happens in the first half.
At the end of the season we will look back at this game as one of our easier tests. This from a guy who had the Ducks by 21 two weeks ago. And sure, the Oregon result has changed my thinking somewhat, but mostly I base this post on the fact that I've seen a lot of Cal this season.
This week I sit-in protest with my Dirty Hippy comrades! I will not shower or brush my teeth until next week, demand other people's money, and slap Bernie Sanders bumper stickers on my 12 year old Toyota Corolla.
Conferences pulling this nonsense are just trying to pretend their schedules are harder than they really are. Any day now the SEC is going to formally announce that the two FCS teams they each play per year are 'D1 Equivalent'.
Second, Wilson threw for over 70% and 200 yards vs Mich. Not too shabby.
Third, go back to last year when KT was hurt and Wilson had no shot of losing his job. He was a completely different QB. If you'd read my posts all summer, you'd see this isn't that shocking. All Wilson needed was a OC who would call plays that complimented him, not expose him.
Travis Wilson and our offense put up 17 points against Michigan, and probably should have had more.
Since that game against us, Michigan's defense has allowed a total of 14 points in four full games.
Michigan's defense is one of the best in the country. I'm really excited to watch their next two games to see if they can back up my belief. Northwestern and Michigan State will certainly be tests.
Our offense was stagnant in the Utah State game, but I truly believe that had Travis played in the second quarter we would have put up another TD or two.
Fresno, we were without Travis.
Oregon, we saw what a Travis Wilson lead offense did to the Ducks.
It's not that I think that the throw game is unbelievable now, but what I do believe is that when Travis is running our offense, it is pretty good and that's all we need.
We've been saying for the last two years, if we only had a "good" offense to complement our ferocious defense and our awesome special teams, we would be a really good team.
Guess what, as long as Travis is running the show, we have that this year. A good offense with a great defense and top-notch special teams. Therefore we have a really good team.
I'm stoked. I'm enjoying this ride. It's been a blast. It might end some time this season, but it also may not. I'm soaking in every article, every tweet, every mention of the Utes in the playoff. How awesome to even be mentioned, at any point of the season as a potential playoff team.
