It lights our eyes up to see Cover 1," Daniel said. "We haven't seen that very often. A lot of (teams) just play Cover 4 and say, 'Hey, dink and dunk us,' which we have been doing.
"That's why we haven't thrown for many yards in the last two weeks. You look at (CU), there's some big plays to be made down the field if we can make them."
Can't wait until we slap him around Saturday with his high school chuck and duck offense..
Any chance this clown is related to Mark Kiszla?.. I think we should start a rumor..
In his defense, he did add the qualifier "if we can make them." I would agree with what he says in that great receivers and QB's eat up Cover 1 if there are average corners. If you have a great corner like we do (Wheatley) and a good corner on the other side it comes down to whether we can get some guys in his face and protect the middle and flats from the TE's. If we can get some heat on him and put a hat on the TE's when they come through the middle, we will crush these guys. If we give him too much time and the TE's start hurting us we'll have to switch to some more zone and he could dink and dunk us to death. I'm betting we get the pressure we need and shut them down.

I like Daniel (booger eating aside). He called out Nebraska for using a high school level defense. He is challenging the CU defense. That's what I want to see in a QB. He called out the Buff defense, now it's time for the Buff defense to shut him up.
yeah, and so far nobody has really shut him down. Now OU did score more than his team did, but he has put up pretty big numbers this year, so it's 'put up or shut up' time for CU. And since I have seen CU hold many teams to well below their average, I am looking forward to seeing what CU can do against him.
Reading Tigerboard.com, they don't think CU can hang, don't think Cu can hold them to 20 points, and have already said (in many posts) that CU can't beat them, they can only beat themselves. Pretty stupid, if they play perfect, they will win. That's any team on any day. And if you **** up due to pressure, then it usually is because the other team put the pressure on yourself, not because all of a sudden you got stupid. Well, except for Pinkle. He does just go suddenly stupid every November. Can't wait to see if it happens again!!
Just hope the Buffs can knock the snot out of him...as opposed to him digging it out on the sideline.
The comment doesn't really bother me too much
In the same article in which he was quoted, the CU guys said something to the effect that Daniel's must not have paid much attention to the defenses CU runs. They said that the vary their coverages quite a bit and disguise them quite a bit. They don't just run cover 1 all the time. The took it as Daniels not showing them any respect.
How many times have we've been beat with big passes this year? I can't remember that many..
Hawk knows these kind of offenses and how to stop or slow them down..
Confident we'll get the job done on Sat..
I hope the Buff defense shuts him down. Is he cocky? Yes he is, but I guess he has a reason to be. He plays well, but if you guys can get some pressure on him I'm willing to bet that he will crack.
