Well, tonight, our Cougs put on a spirited performance in losing to the Condoms 27-6.
In spite of the fact that this USC team needs A LOT of work, I found this game to be the most entertaining and most encouraging game I've seen since the 2007 Apple Cup.
Jeff Tuel: Very green, lots of room to grow, long way to go, but the kid has TALENT. And I don't know about you all, but watching talent is SO MUCH DARN FUN. Can't wait to see us play the rest of the way now.
Linebackers: Some blown coverages and tackles here and there. But overall, the group played agressive and at times looked fast.
Mitz: I know Tardy is a leader and I know that Mitz fumbled one hand off. But Mitz is something. Power + Tuel = The future.
The Scoring Streak Continues: Where are we at now, 6 games?????
The Team: Once again, down 20-0 after USC's onside kick, the team could have folded. Yet, a great drive by Tuel and a couple of nice defensive plays, and we kept the game relatively close. And say what you want about playing against the second teamers, but the final drive was pretty nice.
So, the bottom line is that this team is improving, and at least for us die hards, darn fun to watch.
If we can add more roll-outs to keep Tuel a little more safe, who knows, we might surprise a team the rest of the way.
Congrats to our boys on a pretty nice performance.
