UW coach Chris Petersen on loss to Oregon: ‘It was too easy’ for the Ducks

[do action=”brightcove-video” videoid=”3847384149001″/]

UW coach Chris Petersen after the Huskies’ 45-20 loss to Oregon on Saturday night:

(How disappointing was that?) “Pretty disappointing. When you play an elite team like that, one side of the ball has to be able to step up and make some things happen and give the other side a spark. We got in the red zone a couple times early and had to settle for field goals — that’s not going to be good. Can’t slow them down in the run game, and when you can’t slow those guys down a little bit, it’s going to be a long, long game, like it was.”

(Did you think you’d be able to slow their run game better?) “Yeah, absolutely. We sure did. I’m anxious to put the tape on. I could only see what you guys could see. I’m not sure — it was too easy. They’re very good running the ball; we know that. Their one of the top teams in the country in terms of doing those things, and if you can’t somehow slow them down and make them a little bit one dimensional it’s going to be problems. You can’t point at both sides of the ball. We got nothing going (on offense) — we had three-and-outs and we didn’t run the ball even nearly good enough. So we’re kind of back to the drawing board. It seems like it’s kind of two steps forward, one step back here.”

(Sounds like a concussion for Cyler Miles?) “We’ll see.”

(What did you see out of Troy Williams late?) “It’s hard to really know. I think he did a fine job in there. Sometimes it’s easy to get thrown in there — a fresh set of legs and eyes and all those things. It was good to get him in there and see him do a few things.”

(any update on Dwayne Washington?) “He got a chest injury and we’ll see.”

(How do you close the gap on Oregon?) “I don’t really know. I don’t really worry about their program. I just know we’ve got to get better. We’ve got to coach better. It’s just when they’ve been doing something for a long time, we’re out there and there’s just not enough details being taken care of. Obviously. You can see it. They’ve had it going for quite a long time. It’s not any one phase of their program. Their recruiting’s good; their weight program’s excellent; they know this offense and defense inside and out, and that’s what we’ve got to get to eventually.”

(Would it be concerning to you to see guys at the end of this game laughing and joking around?) “It depends what you’re talking about. … I don’t think anybody thinks that game was funny the way it turned out.”
