From my view of watching the game at the coliseum bestlakersfan Junior Member Joined: Aug 24, 2017 Messages: 757 Likes Received: 1,746 Sep 24, 2018 #1 Keeping it brief and bullet-pointed, but here is what I saw from my seats. 1. The new structure is huge, huge. It does seem to make the stadium more intimate and in your face. Also seems to really help with the noise generated. It was getting LOUD. 2. I have never seen a QB have so many perfect pockets to through out of ever. 3. We generated absolutely zero rush in that game 4. What's up with our DL stances? I swear from end to end, they are about 10 yards away from each other. I've seen OL being spread, but our DL is SOOOO spread away from each other 5. Talanoa Hufanga is going to be very, very special. The kid was flying and has a nose for the ball. 6. Iman Marshall is amazing. He is one of the best CBs in the nation this year. He is also probably one of the best sure tacklers we have. 7. Remind me why John Houston is playing? The only time he does anything is if there are two defenders next to him who can bring down a runner. 8. Same question for Ajene. Lockett can't be worse and deserves a shot. 9. Amon-Ra, Tyler and Michael are fantastic. They don't get a ton of separation, but they each have a LOT of heart and fight in them. 10. An 18 year-old kid kept us from going 1-3. 18 years old. He won the game, IN SPITE OF several men over 40 on million dollar contracts. The kid is and will be amazing. 11. Stephen Carr doesn't seem right. I just feel like he's lost a little burst and wiggle. Looked much more electric last year. 12. Polar Bear is a very accurate name for Pili. Kid is mammoth in size and has gotten bigger. 13. Vavae is the real deal and I hope we use him more. I've been a huge fan of his since the Army game in his senior year of high school. He is tough, has great lateral moves and is hard to bring down. 14. Clancy is not doing us any favors. The scheme is awful and we are playing a passive type of defense. We need to let loose and get some pressure on the QB. I have yet to see it this year. 15. Tee Martin and the offensive (pun intended) coaches seem to do well when the plays are scripted, but outside of that they are not good at their jobs. 16. Hey coach KU, we give you tons of credit, but that DL is not playing anywhere near where they should be. 17. Porter Gustin is a difference maker. He is strong, crazy strong and has a heart and motor that very few can match. He saved us in the second half. He doesn't play the whole game, we lose. 18. Said this in another thread, but kudos to the student section. They were rocking the whole game. Outside of "big games" they usually aren't that spirited, but this group was all about it. Maybe because it was a Friday night game it helped getting the students into the game? Whatever it was, they were awesome. 19. Can we please use Trevon Sidney more? He is a play maker. SC93er, USCFAM, Cardinal&Gold and 4 others like this.
