Questions, questions

Asking for questions last week seemed to go pretty well, so I’ll try it again this week.
I sometimes miss questions that get buried in some of the other posts, so having a separate place to put questions works out well. Post them here if you can the next day or two and I’ll try to answer them by Thursday.
One question I’ll answer here is my C grade for the special teams Saturday, which some of you have questioned. It was a bit too high on reflection.
I could explain that the grades are typically the last thing I do on Saturday night after the game, and it got cold and late this Saturday night in the Stanford press box — they had actually locked up all but one gate in the stadium and I walked around the concourse for about 10 minutes trying to get out before I finally located it. But that would, I guess, be throwing the Stanford press box under the bus and I don’t want to do that.
Anyway, upshot is I didn’t look quite as closely at some of the special teams numbers as I should have, particularly, the fact that UW had a net punting average of 25 yards on top of the poor kickoff coverage, the one muffed punt return and two missed field goals. So that should have been a D at best. I think most of the rest were pretty accurate, however, even though the opponent was “just” Stanford. UW beat the Cardinal the way a better team should, dominating both lines and charting a huge discrepancy in rushing yards on both offense and defense and keeping the Cardinal’s receivers in check. The trick now is to do it again what will unquestionably be a much tougher opponent than Stanford (and setting) this Saturday.
