Are we going to get to play? It's on for now but there have been so issues at OSU so this might go right on up to game time.
The big question going into the game. That's easy, who's the QB? Usually I have some insider info with my boys knowing UW players through football camps and junior football and high school football. Not so this year with Salvon Ahmed and others gone. Still, we know a couple and we aren't getting much info out of them, Chris Petersen was pretty secretive but Jimmy Lake has taken it to the next level. The players are sworn to secrecy and to tell you the truth, I am not even sure the players know who is going to start.
Okay, the QB's: Kevin Thomson, Dylan Morris, and Jacob Sirmon, haven't heard too much about true freshman Ethan Garbers. From what I have heard Morris won camp but given that Cal has a really good D they were planning on starting Thomson last wk as he has a lot more game time experience. Feel bad for local boy Sirmon but he really doesn't fit our new OC's philosophy being a little too erect and immobile. I can see them starting Thomson with both Morris and Sirmon seeing playing time if things go good early.
How is this going to go? Look for UW to pound the ball. We have a really good and deep group of running backs running behind a OL that averages nearly 325 lbs. They are huge and are in fact, the largest group UDub has ever fielded. Kamari Pleasant probably starts with Richard Newton and Cameron Davis getting most of the reps. Jimmy Lake has placed an emphasis on physicality and look for the Huskies to wear down Oregon State's much smaller squad by the 3rd qtr.
