Playcalling gets too much attention at times, but it always hurts us in these types of games. Hate to bring up irrelevant points from the past, but there was a reason for the boring playcalling of the Don James teams.
Browning - Doogs might use the young QB/underclassman excuse but how does he get markedly better? Alabama is basically an NFL defense and you aren't beating them with a QB that has physical limitations.
OL - I've been loving these guys but Alabama is a different beast. Gotta keep developing. I would love to commit to using Dissly/Sample and being the baddest motherfucker on the block next year, but Petersen offenses have never really been like that.
DL - I know coach K is our DC, but he's the best DL coach in the country. How fucking good was Jaylen Johnson? Turpin, a guy written off by all of us long ago was making plays against Alabama.
LB- Did your job. Bob Gregory was a top 2-3 DC in the PAC 10 at Cal. He's our LB coach. But how is our d staff unbelievably good?
DB - All studs. No words for Baker. Please come back Jones. Kevin King you are the swaggiest dude on the team and not a pussy either. You have heart. Love all these fucking guys. We all know about Lake too.
Petersen, I was wrong about you. You know what the fuck you are doing. Still wish you had a slightly different philosophy on offense, but the stats show that is a somewhat crazy complaint.
I'm somewhat mad, a little disappointed, but you guys proved something all fucking season and made bitter fucks like me happily come along for the ride.
