But aren't we strong against the run and weak against the pass? They would be running the 1 dimension we're weak against, and not bothering with the 1 dimension we are strong against.

But not having to worry about the run means Clancy can pin their ears back - I LOVE our pass rush

There are actually a lot of similarities between it and Oregon's offense, especially in the use of wide receiver screens.
The other side of the coin to remember - TTU was never known for their defense.

Actually, that is good for Cal. We have played Oregon tough on Defense. Over the past 5 seasons, Cal has held Oregon, on average, 15 pts below their average against other opponents.

Wow, we've actually exceeded your expectations thus far. I imagine two of the 3 wins you predicted were Nevada and southern Utah. Apparently WSU was not. Who can we still look forward to?
