Afoa takes blame for big run

If you read the piece below on defensive coordinator Kent Baer’s comments on what happened against UCLA, you’ll see he said that almost everyone on the team was to blame.
Senior defensive tackle Wilson Afoa, for instance, who is one of the most experienced players on the team, blamed himself for being out of position on the long touchdown run by Chris Markey in the fourth quarter.
“It was a critical error on my part and I take it upon myself to correct it,” he said, adding that he was “just not in the right place at the right time.”
That seems to be the theme of the week, that players were out of position, or not doing what they were supposed to. Why that was no one seems to really know. Youth can be an excuse in some cases, but obviously not for Afoa, who has started 22 games in his career.
“It’s just those (mental errors),” Afoa said. “You can’t make a mistake in a game. I made a mistake and we paid big for it.”
