Barely hanging on

The Huskies don’t seem like they should still be in it the way they are playing, but they still are.
The key now will be the first drive of the second half, something I know I’ve said on here a few times. But Oregon gets the ball first and if the Ducks move down the field easily again, this one could be over.
Listened to Willingham’s comments on the radio via internet and he said the defense has often been misaligned. “We haven’t been getting guys in the right position,” he said.
Offensively, he noted all the dropped passes. “The first thing we’ve got to do is make the plays we can make,” he said.
A few personnel notes —- Brandon Ala left with an elbow injury of unknown severity; Kenny James hasn’t played yet and word is he may not. Officially, they are reporting that he is better than a week ago but so far, he hasn’t seen action.
That means Louis Rankin has gotten all the tailback carries. Willingham noted the ineffectiveness of the running game in his halftime comments but said “we can’t abandon our running game now.”
Also, I haven’t seen Marcel Reece out there once.
