Ok, so for the second game in a row the Buffs oppenent gave every opportunity for the Buffs to win, and well the Buffs squandered them away. So now the Buffs make a switch at quarterback and hopefully this does not become the QB shuffle of ’08. Lets hope Hansen is given the freedom to make mistakes and is allowed to learn from them. Lets be honest, this season is going nowhere fast and if we switch to Hansen lets stick it out so he comes in next year as a more experienced player and we can get off to a fast start.
We need to get more constency from the reciever position. Perhaps the slow development by that crew is caused by the fact the position coach is also the head coach and might not be able to give enough attention to the young players and their development. All I can really hope is that Hansen can throw an out route with some zip on the ball so a corner can’t pick it off and return it for a td.
Special teams continue to be less than special. On a night where Scott had a big return and the Buffs blocked a field goal they also had a punt blocked for a touchdown and a punt returned for a td. Not to mention I’m not too sure we can make a field goal. If this part of the game doesn’t improve it won’t matter who the QB is. We are not good enough that we can hand any team 14 points.
Defensively things continue to improve and things are looking better than early in the year. The front seven was able to pressure McCoy and hold the Texas running game in check. The secondary got beat a couple of times, but are still playing far better than they did against Toledo. Showing improvement is encouraging, which is why the offense has been so frustrating. If the secondary can limit the deep throws better then the Buffs might actually be competetive in the Big 12 north.
