    I was very pleased with the offense and the game plan they used last night. Guiton looked like a seasoned vet... Hall looked solid and has earned that RB spot... WRs looked very good all night... Wilson is so dynamic and I really thought he was taking that first sweep in the game!

    Defense is concerning. I am very happy for the win but we can't be giving up 30+ pts a game. That side of the ball needs more work.

    I am tired of seeing this. This is not tressel ball where we bleed the clock and control the clock....

    A couple of things:

    - We are starting 9 new defensive starters

    - On offense we are scoring very quickly

    - Are quick pace on offense has increased the time our defense is on the field

    - Give credit to Cal. That freshman quarterback is very good.

    - Finally, look at the great Bama defense which gave up 42 points yesterday. College football has changed. There are no more 10-7 games and more 31-28 games. Get used to it and quit complaining.

    We are in the era of fast break offenses and they can score.

    Cal has a very good offense. They were not leading the nation in passing for no reason.

    Bama gave up 500 plus yards to one player yesterday. It is a new era in college football. SEC does not even play defense anymore.

    Whats the difference between winning 10-7 or 31-28?

    Definitely need to give credit to Cal. Their freshman QB is very good and they have some solid skill players.

    Bigelow only had 39 yds on 11 carries :thumb:

    Cal could easily put up over 500 yrds of total offense on majority of teams in the top 25. it's just too bad they don't have a defense. i can wait to watch them play oregon.

    There's only 1 football and we have a stable of horses.

    Smith got a few carries last night and he'll probably be the 3rd RB now... Elliott is just a freshman but his time will certainly come in the next couple years.

    i don't think it will! Wisconsin will play us hard because it's one way to save their season and they are still in it for the Big10 championship. they are still playing for their 4th rose bowl runner up trophy.

    Going to be hard to get Hall to take less carries. He's the 5th in most yards run by a Back in the country. 91 yards behind the leader. :suprised: Not enough room in the Stable. 2 probably gone. And more coming, so no sense in redshirting. :smile:

    I can live with giving up points but when we do not make adjustments and let them gash us on the SAME PLAY all game something needs to be done

    I really do not think it is as simple as our defense sucks as most will comment.........

    Combination of things last night and one was they have a very good young quarterback with a system that fits him perfectly...

    Our defense by no mean sucks, and yes cal has a young QB in right system and older he gets he'll be stupid good. But at least 5 time they went 3x1 and ran that screen. They didn't adjust to it and every time went for big plays. They played soft to it and didn't put a LB or End to the hook curl where the screen alley is

    Any injury updates from the game?

    Bennett?

    They are keeping this pretty quiet.

    Go Bucks!
