    1. Embree's 1st and 10 QB SNEAK vs Washington.
    2. CU returner Mosley botches kick off, tackles his own player, Oregon runs it in for TD
    3. Embree sending DD Goodson to attempt full gait punt catch with 40 secs left in first half vs CSU
    4. Bienemy mouths "That's on me!" after Delay of Game after Time Out to prevent Delay of Game.
    5. 98-yard TD run by obscure Fresno State RB.
    6. Connor Wood throws a wounded duck while being sacked, intercepted by Washington DB.
    7. Webb has all day in the pocket, fires a strike to the Stanford LB in the red zone.
    8. Hirschman Read Option.

    What else? Embree is so awful.

    Lucky you. At least an old guy like yourself will forget this season because of your dementia. I have a vivid memory of every single ****ed up call this year. ****.

    11. Three CU penalties on 1 play. Including two personal fouls against Oregon?
    12. Ray Polks 11th consecutive game with a Late-Hit-Out-Of-Bounds PF.

    Yeah, what the hell is that about, does that guy not know where the sidelines are? Still think he should have been a Running Back for us. At least we know he would finish his runs with a hit instead of running out of bounds and giving up those extra 2-3 yards each play.

    I have a hard time coming up with ten good plays...so take the rest and order them randomly, what difference does it make? Loser.

    Surely some of that nonsense last year having Darragh run around, and do something like punt it off his left thigh facing backwards while in mid air would have to be up there.

    Didn't we manage a false start from the "no huddle" set against CSU? In that offense, there isn't even a snap count.

    You'd be surprised what you don't remember from your teens, at least I am. Of course the concussion rules and helmet technology are different now, so maybe it's just me that's surprised...good thing(or not) for out of focus pictures taken on a Konica 110 pocket camera.

    - 4th & 1 on own 40 during Washington game.

    Context: Late 1st quarter, tie game, field position constantly tilted in Washington's favor, a punt means first and only opportunity to flip the field.


    He decides to go for it with a typically predictable play.

    End this punishment!!!!

    In the stands yesterday for the 1st and ten QB sneak. Lol. Embree's reward for the successful QB sneak = 2nd and eight!!! Worst part of that play however was that Webb was the QB. Earlier in the game, we went for it on 4th and one, Wood was QB. Dude is almost as big as Powell, but they wont let him go for the sneak.....yet Webb gets the call on the 'crucial' 1st and ten. Omfg, let it end

    :rofl:
    If we had any offense the game would have been close because washington didnt show up in the 1st half.

    Agreed. Of course I tell my UW friend "dont worry, we haven't made a half-time adjustment in two years. I'm sure UW covers in the second half". Wish I was wrong.

    New ones from today.

    5. The almost intercepted running-back pass on the 15 yard line, down to the 7 yard line. Solid play.
    6. 4th and 2 crossing route pass to the true freshman who dropped 3 balls earlier in half.
    7. In the fulgiest 3 minute drill, Hirschman's repeated 8 yard passes over the middle, eating all of the clock.

    I have to throw in the "lets kick to the leading kickoff returner in the country" play.

    He said on the radio he reminded everyone to stay in their lanes. How about just kicking to the other deep guy or just pooch kicking it down to the 20.

    Absolutely agree with bolded. That play was drawn up for GT. The same GT who has to have the twice as many drops as the second worst guy. I thought that was the worst (most crucial) play of the game. Plays like that are what OCs can't do.

    I actually didn't mind the halfback pass. Nor did I mind the LT screen that much. One thing I always criticize these buffs for was their lack of creativity. We don't fake FGs, or punts, and no trick plays ever. We play NFL football. We line up and try to just beat the other guys. It's not working. We don't out scheme anybody. We don't do anything unpredictable.

    OK, we're unpredictable. Who else would do a 1st and 10 QB sneak? But we don't do any trickeration! Barnett was good for a fake FG or punt every 2 weeks. Probably only a 15% success rate. But at least this type of stuff was on film. The other team had to prepare for it. We never do anything creative.

    Today we (FINALLY) did. They didn't work, but I'm glad we tried them.

    8. What about the throwback screen to the Utah DE on the second play of the game?
    9. What about sending the punting unit out on 4th and 3 at midfield with 5 minutes left in your winless at home season, only to call a timeout on yourself and then run dumbest play ever #6?
    10. What about seeing Utah line up in their stupid swinging gate formation, KNOWING they're going to attempt it, calling a timeout and STILL give up about the easiest two point conversion ever?
    11. What about throwing the ball to the right about 5 times in the second quarter, so our WRs have to look right back into the sun? I'm pretty sure all of those tries were dropped. (thankfully Utah did the exact same thing coming out of halftime)
