We need to throw some on first down. Move the chains so we can run the ball. We aren't winning any shutout.

Really absurd pass interference call. So glad the universe took care of it with that INT.

Agreed. Why do they keep running in different OL's. How are they supposed to gain any continuity?

Pass blocking has been ok, but run blocking has been pretty weak. A few holes, but many more plays stuffed.

These announcers are killing me...what happened to being objective, or slightly objective for that matter. Did anybody get a good look at the fumble by Nwoko? Couldn't get a decent replay angle...it looked like it was out before he hit the ground.

If anything that should have been offensive PI. Hagan clearly had a play on the ball.

I get a feeling that the heat worries the coaches a bit. They are trying to rotate the O-line to keep them from getting tired and to help tire out the 'Zona D-line. From what I remember 'Zona doesn't have the deepest D-line in the Pac-10 so wearing them out might not be a bad move, and Tedford does like to try to wear down defenses so that he can run on them at will in the second half.

Would be nice to see more runs for 1st downs though.

Who gets the ball (receives kick off) at the start of the third?

That not one guy told Shane to "Run and get me some coffee"





Good bit though... Kind of fun to see him like that.

it was the most blatant example of offensive interference I've ever seen. I thought that the flag was against Criner until the Ref called it defensive.

Hagan definitely has Criner blanketed if they try to go deep on that side.

His left knee did hit before the ball was stripped out, it was definitely not a fumble.

In other news, ASU is holding their own against Oregon. 14-14 halfway through 2nd Qtr. I'm glad we have UCLA and ASU at home this year.

Might have been easier to see in HD with a cameraman who could follow a running play.

Yeah, I've enjoyed all his bits as Comcast Intern. He has developed a camera presence, which is not easy to do, and reminds me a little of Nnamdi.
