First, Utah is good. They arenít the 1985 bears though and they embarrased our offense. I am all too familiar w that bears team as I grew up in Boston and they destroyed the patriots in Super Bowl when I was 11.
I realize west, Ladarius and Daniels are young. That said we also played cote and Helmsley at times giving us 5
Seniors on line.
Youth was a factor for sure but coaching more so innmy opinion. Didnít see any adjustments by likens. No tight end to help Ladarius. No screen passes. No full back , and he kept throwing or trying to throw the ball w awful weather and Daniels and line struggling.
That was as inept an offensive performance as I can recall by asu in a long time. We couldnít even compete. Several series my group I was watching with suggested we kick a field goal on first down as we were going backwards.
Youth was a factor but so was coaching which was brutal. If we are going to play the young o line excuse card now we might as well write off next year as we will have 3 new ones. That is the Tracy smith model. Use the youth excise every year, which in tracys case gets old as he runs off half the team and then blames youth.
You mentioned that 38 to 0 Utah game. I was at that game. First game of my freshman year. I had the game t shirt until a few years ago and the old lady made me get rid of it!
