Husky Football Blog

The latest news and analysis on the Montlake Dawgs.

I wrote two stories for today.
One was a little off-the-beaten-path — a look at technology has changed film study in college football through the eyes of the UW program. One note that didn’t make it in there was a coach telling me he studies film on his I-pod.
The other was our notebook with a focus on UW’s attempts to improve its kickoff coverage.
One of you questioned my math on the net kickoff coverage.
Let me try to explain.
UW is last in the Pac-10 in net kickoff coverage at 35.8.
That means since the normal kickoff is from the 30-yard-line, the opposing team is generally starting at the 34.2 yard-line (assume 70 yards from kickoff spot to goal line so 70 minus 35.8 is 34.2.) UW is allowing 25.9 yards per kickoff return but since their average kick is going to about the 9-yard-line, that’s putting the ball at about the 34 on average.
USC leads the Pac-10 at 45.8, meaning opponents are usually starting at the 24.2 against the Trojans. That’s quite a difference.
The Huskies have only one touchback this season, the surest way to prevent a long return. UCLA has zero and Oregon State and WSU also have just one each. Arizona leads with 19 while ASU has 11 and USC 10 (warm weather probably helping).
A FEW OTHER STORIES:
— Oregon State RB Yvenson Bernard says “I gotta play” against the Huskies.
— Anything else you might want to know about Oregon State can be found here on the Oregonian’s Behind The Beavers Beat blog (Wikipedia???)
— The Corvallis Gazette-Times says Lyle Moevao is ready for his start. Be shocked if he said anything else.
— It’ll be Senior Night Saturday and OSU will say goodbye to 23 seniors.
