31.Aug.2012 Around the Pac-12
Discuss what you saw from Pac-12 foes last night.
I mostly watched the WSU/BYU game, so I can't comment much on the others. What I saw of ASU was impressive. Utah looked solid as ever. UCLA appeared flawed on defense and execution. But, I watched maybe 5 minutes of each of those games. Pretty sure I saw some read option from each of those teams, though. Not good news for the Beavs D or Mark Banker.
Washington State…they had issues (looked a lot like the Beavs, actually, shanking punts, playing nervous, etc), but BYU is probably better than everyone in the Pac-12 other than Oregon and USC. Dumbos like "BendBeaver" are already claiming the Mike Leach era is a failure (lol!) after 1 game, but they're willing to give Riley 12 years (keep in mind, Riley is 0-2 vs BYU, games played on a neutral site and at home). Hilarious! Leach probably needs to recruit his own QB and get him in the system before anyone can judge.
BYU looks tough. They're a group of intense, 30 year old men. Beavs will have their hands full.
