Hey, let's keep talking about the Wisconsin game. Two weeks after the fact that Northern Illinois played a Top-10 team so miserably at Soldier Field, the Badgers game still scorns the Huskies for good reason. The offense before then against Kansas and just this past week against Cal Poly scored 42 and 47 points respectively.
Nathan Palmer says "I really, firmly still believe that that wasn’t us at all." He said that Wisconsin slowed down the tempo just enough for the Huskies to lose their focus and rhythm. That sounds a lot like basketball and a lot like how Oregon struggled against LSU early on in the season. This lack of focus can be attributed to any number of things including a "hangover" from the Kansas game we were so close to winning or the expectations and excitement of playing in Soldier Field. Huskie Stadium might have been a little more comforting to the team, but what are you going to do?
K Matthew Sims is hard on himself, but where are the articles on kickoff specialist Tyler Wedel? I'm glad that Sims was able to get some work in Saturday at the expense of the offense scoring touchdowns, but we'll need him to perform greatly come the conference season. The main concern I have right now is with position that has been so important all across the board in college football this year.
Kill is back at Minnesota practice.
