    Momentum has shifted. We need to find a way to get it back.

    As many things that went wrong in the WSU game, they seem to be going right tonight.

    Our offensive line has been great tonight.

    There’s hope for this season yet! This was a great game.

    8 ypc for Moss is fantastic. 17/21 for Huntley? Love it.

    Beating Stanford always feels good. An 0-3 start would have been unbearable.

    To me it seems most important that the team learned that they can win, they can hold off a ranked team —on the road — that’s coming back on them, and they can execute well in those situations. It looked like Huntley was comfortable tonight too.

    Those things that went against us vs UW and WSU - turnovers, big plays, and bad calls - went our way last night. Also, no drops.

    I was fast asleep during the game, but WHAT A RESULT!!!!! Beating a top 15 team on the road by 20 points is not bad! Some thoughts after having watched 0:00 of the game:

    1. I guess Huntley is still the guy.
    2. Z Moss is the real deal. Running like that on Stanford is phenomenal (even if Stanford D-line is down this year).
    3. Kyle owns Stanford. They are probably complaining about having to play Utah too much.
    4. The Pac North needs to help us out. Arizona beating Cal yesterady is one of those games which doesn't seem to matter much but given Arizona's cushy schedule, they are still in the South race.
    5. I hope LA apologized for saying that Kyle never wins big games. That was mean!

    It was glorious. Catch the replay on Pac-12 this week sometime. One of those games that makes you think we finally have it figured out. (Don't fall for that, though!).

    We haven't had our wtf loss yet this year. I think UCLA in LA could be that team.

    I'm glad RichRod is gone. That guy had us figured out.

    I was in the stands and pleasantly surprised by the turnout of Ute fans. The stadium was mostly empty.

    Some things the Utes did well last night:
    - kick FGs
    - defend the run
    - Convert 3rd and 1 and 4th and 1.
    - score just before halftime.
    - run the ball
    - tackle

    Huntley played well overall, but he's still not really a threat to throw. The long TD to Nacua was the first passing TD this season against a team not called Weber State.

    I think this was a terrific win and I give Kyle and his staff the credit!

    It’s scary how in this conference even a 19-point victory like this is a close shave. This game was decided by two improbable plays—the 100 yard pic six and the desperation 59 yard TD pass from a scrambling blitz-evading T. Huntley who can’t throw deep.

    I would add one more play Seattle. I think Maxs Tupai's sack that preceded the drive that included the Huntley touchdown pass was enormous. Stanford had been moving the ball up and down the field for two quarters and the defense finally got a stop.

  17. #47
    Question to the X and O folks.
    What changes (if any) did TT make for the Stanford game?
    Or did it just start to click for everyone?
    Are the formations, personell packages a lot different?

    It seems the OLine was much improved. Scheme? Time together?
    The pass/run mix seemed about right.

    And SU makes a good point. Those 2 plays played a huge role in a slug fest becoming a 20 point win.

    Agreed. I give the players lots of credit for making the plays you and Seattle list. It is impressive how much difference that makes. I think the coaching staff had the players ready this time. The killer instinct was alive in the players and the coaches all 60 minutes of the game. Onward!

    Yeah, that's why most games in the Pac (that don't feature Oregon State or Washington) are tossups. Washington State is a W if not for that 86 yard pass play: if we just don't whiff on tackling the guy or it is not a perfect pass, we are 2-1 and in the birddog's seat in the South!

    We ran the ball more on 1st and second down

    I felt like the offense was more unpredictable.

    For example, on the 4th and 1 where Moss got through for the TD, I figured we were going to run the whole "TE fake blocks and runs into the flat". We ran some similar action in that we motioned the slot across the formation to Huntley's right, so I was looking for it to go there. I think Stanford was too as a bunch of guys shifted to their left. Then Moss busts through and there is nobody in the backfield.

    It just seemed like it the offense was more balanced and unpredictable overall.

    Gunther broke that play down today

    Great blocking by the left side of the line. They got to the linebackers. Moss hit the hole fast and hard and was through before Stanford knew he was there.

    Watching the first half on Pac-12 network:

    - Our pass defense is a little bit (maybe a lot) shaky. It seems that they can get a 15 yard pass whenever they want. There big TE/receivers are a load for us to handle. JJ getting lost on a few of the deep moves.
    - Our run D, on the other hand, is money.
    - The O lien has gotten SOOO much better since No. Illinois/Weber.

    - Covey is our only wideout who can get a first when we need it. He's covering every catch with a double arm bar; the coaches talked to him about his fumbles.
    - I'm kind of impressed with this freshman tide end (Kluthe). I didn't pay attention when we signed him but he's good.
    - I love Chase Hansen and Cody Barton (yes, I was wrong about him).
    - Props to Kyle for getting the fg just before the half. I would have just held the ball.
    - Lots of defensive holdings calls.
    - Are we the most penalized team for ineligible receiver downfield? Some of these calls I have no idea how the O-lineman has time to get too far downfield.
    - Was Oregon State's coach an accountant in his previous career?

    Oh, wait until you watch the 2nd half.

    Two weeks in a row our secondary has been completely shredded. Both were unique opponents, though. WSU with their air raid - passing is all they do. Stanford with their 6'6" WRs/TEs. They get a PI/holding on pretty much every series in the 2nd half.

    If Arizona also gets 350+ passing yards, it's time to panic.

  26. #56
    Second half:

    - The pass defense: . I think they are picking on Guidry (it's hard to tell; I'm watching football in 60). But JJ has his share of misreads. Blackmon has been pretty good so far (but he gets burned on one of the touchdowns in the future). Ballard is pretty good; a couple of BS pass interferences. (Our guys need to sell the no PI better; we're always looking around to see if the ref has thrown a flag. That will (and has multiple times in the game) lead to refs throwing a flag).
    - Man, they are passing at will. It's like we are playing Washington State.
    - I hate seeing Porter Gustin talking about how USC has a green campus. Look, if you had wanted a beautiful, natural campus you would not have gone to a school in south central.

    I keep thinking about this. If you're going to be aggressive with 24 seconds to go, why hand it off on 1st down? Or, maybe you hand it off on 1st down just to see if you break something. But you don't break anything big. Who then calls a time out and runs it again? Just a crazy series.

    - Are we the most penalized team for ineligible receiver downfield? Some of these calls I have no idea how the O-lineman has time to get too far downfield.
    I've seen this penalty 100 times in my life, and, so far, the penalty has never - not once - had any effect on the play itself. This is one of the dumbest rules in football. I get the intent, but the rule should change.

    On the drive where we kick a field goal to go up 30-21, how did we get down the field? Big kickoff? The football in 60 broadcast cut out all the good plays and we just started at their 30.

  29. #59
    Geez, how many TEs/big receivers can one team have? I've never heard of some of these guys.

    Great O-line play in this game, especially on our left side.
