    Takeaways from the game? Revised expectations?

    Well, game experience is only part of the equation though. Oliver was a true sophomore on that team and flashed enough to generate NFL buzz as basically the #3 CB. Talent still matters. Being young and showing lots of potential can be mutually exclusive.

    Which DB has the talent of Awuzie on this year's team?

    Takeaways from the game? Revised expectations?

    The 2016 defense did not have marginal talent at all. Depth was spotty, but the starters could and did play with just about anyone.

    The competition may not be very good, but it is worth noting their defense has gotten very little help from their offense.

    Georgia is the best team in the country at the moment.

    The new staff parted ways with several upperclassmen on defense over the course of the offseason as well. Youth is only somewhat of an excuse for the struggles on defense.

    Wondering if Chip Kelly may choose to move on from UCLA at the end of the season. Would be giving up a lot of money, but I do not think either side likes that arrangement.

    We will know a lot about the ceiling of this team after the next two games. Need to beat UCLA on the road.

    I can read into the fact that the defense knows how to force turnovers. It will bite them at some point, but it is hardly a coincidence at this point. The defense has also slowed opponents for stretches of games as well. 0-3? Not even close. Your schtick is really bland and unimaginative...

    It will be a roller coaster for the next nine games.

    College football, especially in conference play, is a week to week thing for about 75-80% of teams. You can only read so much into the Air Force game (or the ****braska game).

    Losing seasons are always ****ty IMO. Next year is a MUCH tougher schedule too.

    Not the end of the world, but there does need to be a sense of urgency in this program. We fired a coach who went 5-7 in consecutive seasons dropping games like this one. The margin for error is pretty small. If we "meet" those preseason expectations, that is a ****ty season.

    Takeaways from the game? Revised expectations?

    At this point, I think you can say they are at least average in passing offense. Against our pass defense, more than enough to put up huge numbers.

    10 of their 16 games under Herm Edwards have been one score games.

    Not sure how good Washington State is, but that looks like a terrible matchup for us on paper, in Pullman no less.
