    I think the slow mesh is a clever offensive scheme. You've got to have a good offensive line though to execute it and some really smart players who are on the same page. I can see how turnover risk is higher with this approach. Will be interesting to see. Seems like you need to get into the QB and RBs head early on and have some success by taking some chances on getting into the backfield.

    It's worked for the inventor at Wake Forest. Depends how well a copycat OC understands the concepts and coaches the execution.

    I'm guessing we'll force them to run given their QB and RB situations

    "But, I imagine David Shaw is looking at Washington’s banged up secondary and is licking his lips imagining Tanner McKee and his forest of trees bullying the UW secondary all game."

    Nailed it. Kind of scary I assume the slow mesh is most difficult for LBs and Safeties and I'm not 100% confident in those spots

    I'm going to be Chicken Little until it's 10:30 and Washington is ahead 41-20. Stanford has a semi-mobile QB with a veteran offensive line and a bunch of big receivers and a good tight end. At least offensively I'm still worried about the matchup from Stanford.
    This

    I’ve seen OL not even on the roster push our guys around

    RB’s with bailing wire holding their ankle together going for like 200 yards

    With UW’s pass defense, good luck with trying to force the run.

    I feel like it bears a reminder: this is Stanford vs. Washington.

    Random memory popped into my head... In 1986 the Huskies opened with crushing victories over Ohio State and BYU, and went into the USC game as favorites on the road. They lost 20-10 and Junior Seau sacked Chris Chandler about 14 times. We were like "where were the Huskies from the first two games?"

    I'm not going to be Chicken Little but I will be on edge.

    I don't think Seau was at USC in 1986. He was in same age demographic as you and me.

    Didn't UW beat Cal & Justin Wilcox last year? I mean, I know they lucked out, but it was a win.

    Yes, but it was such straight up luck and it seemed Cal was so strangely cranked up to win that game that I'm not taking off that monkey unless they win convincingly this year.

    With Husky football I'm always a believer in monkeys on back until they're officially shown to be removed from the back. If the Huskies beat Stanford/Shaw comfortably Saturday night it's off and I'll feel normal about them. Until then, Stanford/Shaw has played UW more well and harder than they should have post-2016. I think the key will be UW's offense against the Stanford D - there's no reason UW shouldn't be able to outscore them comfortably, if needed.

    Current Monkeys on the UW back

    Always losing to Oregon and Oregon playing exceptional against them.
    Cal & Justin Wilcox - they can end that this year
    Playing at UCLA
    Playing at ASU
    Semi-mobile not super accurate QBs being poison
    I'm gonna need to see a couple more wins to feel that way personally.
