With the last two games for The Cougars I has become more apparent for the new coach that he is not playing in the Big 12 anymore. Teams in the Pac 12 are faster and thus score quickly. Now granted he has a quick score offense but it requires experience like any complex offense. Lack of familiarity proved key in this weeks loss to Oregon State. And t he WSU schedule of Cal, @Stanford, @Utah, UCLA, @ASU, and WASH doesn’t allow for many more growing pains.
The Beavers defense caused 5 turn overs 3 if which were interceptions made by Jordan Poyer. Poyer second interception actually forced Coach Leach to sub in his back up QB, Jeff Tuel. I can’t say whether or not that was the bestbcall to make as I didn’t see the game but I know it is better to keep faith in yor starter unless your going to switch starters all together.
Next week Mike Leach must face the struggling Golden Bears of Cal who are coming off an impressive upset victory over an exciting looking UCLA Bruins team. If this was Mike Leach’s Texas Tech team I would say get ready for a possible offensive explosion but its not and I think if he doesn’t stick with a QB Cal can easily make it two in a row.
