You were MUCH too generous with the o-line. They get an A for pass protection, but a D for run blocking, especially in short yardage. That works out to a B-/C+


You're not the first to point this out, but I guess I'm a bit of a softie. I agree with your concerns about the short yardage blocking, but I still think they'll get better.


I've long thought that Marecic's absense would show up in the running game. I didn't get to see much of the game because of a family obligation, but the stats seemed to bear our my suspicion. What does anyone else think?


The problem in the first half was that SJSU's DL was pushing the OL back so running lanes between the tackles were closed right at the point of attack. Wilkerson's dismal day was probably the object example of this trend. Marecic's presence could only have helped marginally in this case.

The radio broadcasters did mention that SJSU had something like 17 or 18 defensive linemen on their roster; didn't pay attention as to how freely they substituted but I have to think that an OL trying to jell would have problems facing different personnel every down or every other down.

I would argue the special teams grade is too high. How many kick offs did we have and not a single touchback? They were regularly receiving the ball at the 15 yard line and I bet they averaged starting field position at the 30 yard line. Good tackling limited it to that. One of the punts was a horrible squib as well. Our kicking game makes me nervous.

I assume this was done on the Stanford grading system circa 1991.

Does this mean that any group can choose to forego a game grade up until the 2 minute warning?
