For the first time since handing the keys to Gary Rogers in 08, the Cougar offense actually looked like it was running a real game-plan. We saw a no-huddle, spread offense that was run by a savvy, if youthful, quarterback who had a variety of weapons to choose from including both receivers and tailbacks. More importantly, the coaches are finally learning to trust our players with an offense that doesn't come with a "for dummies" tacked on the end.
Although USC eventually sniffed out our game plan and brought the pain with talent and size advantages, for one half we actually executed an offense. This is a huge accomplishment and it shows just how far this program has come from the depths of 08-09 where we barely looked like a football team.
For those still calling for Wulff's departure, think about this: in just 3 weeks we have gone from a power style offense, to a spread offense and yet still executed. That says a lot about the quality of in game coaching, practicing, and recruiting. A lot has been said about Wulff's ability to coach and motivate and most of it has been negative. Yet, despite this we are starting to see a team come to maturity. What's especially important is that in 3 consecutive weeks, we have seen improvement on the field, if not on the scoreboard.
And talk about recruiting! There are two players alone who should give us hope for the future, Marquess Wilson and C.J. Mizell. These are both true freshmen who are months out of high school, and yet making a huge impact. Imagine 3-4 years from now- with legitimate stars like these and solid, if not spectacular, players around them, we will be relevant again on a national stage.
After the train-carrying-radioactive-waste-through-a-playground-wreck that was the loss to Okie State, I was ready to drop Wulff quicker than a week-old sack of my daughter's poopy diapers, but now I believe. Show me more Coach Wulff!
