Jimmy Lake has already gone on record for saying he wants to be more aggressive in all phases of the game. That’s what we need to hear because in three of our losses it was almost like our team took Nyquil before the game. They have to play with more fire. Football is about being a warrior. You have to have the belief that you can dominate your competition.
The UW has done an ok job recruiting. We have a lot of good kids …just need a few more guys like Dick Newton who goes all out.
Let’s get to the topic. Oregon barely beat the Dawgs. We replaced 9 starters. We started Wellington and Manu. Love those guys but you couldn’t do worse with LB play if you tried. I still tip my hat because Welly and Manu took the reps and that this allowed the younger guys to learn.
Next season. Cam is 10lbs heavier, Asa is 10lbs heavier, McDuffie is stronger. Dom Hampton will probably get out there more. Julius Irvin may finally see the field.
We have a lot of talent and haven’t even marketed the school like it should be. What fool wants to live in Autzen vs Seattle? Jimmy knows he’s sitting on a gold mine. He knows that some players come with more risk but deliver more reward.
