I am a muttering mass of protoplasm at the moment; I don’t know how to feel. But I did not want to wait until Monday for my article–we have such a great group here that likes to discuss things–let’s talk about this win!
I’ll have my usual opinion/analysis piece on Monday, but tell me what you are feeling, the impact and all that is cascading through right now…
One thing I will touch on to begin with? In the post-game interview … Coach Mario Cristobal was asked why he called a time-out before the final play? The answer was that he saw Washington lining up in the rush-three, and drop eight defense. That would foil passing plays, but it was vulnerable to the run and that was a great call by Arroyo and approved by Cristobal.
Willie would not have won that game, as he would not let the coaches loose last year; but enough of that..
What an epic game!
Were you as sick as I to see the damn Huskies line up for the field goal for the final play in regulation? I knew they were going to make it, yet I commented to the Duck-Buddy with me about how, when I was in Seattle in 1995, the Huskies were poised to win the game the same way. And they missed…
And they choked again.
Let’s start discussing in the comments as I want the feedback of this very erudite, very focused group of Oregon fans.
You will love this video above–listen and savor this short tune…
