After Wednesday night’s practice Bob Gregory said that linebacker Mickey Pimentel most likely will start on Saturday. Justin Moye, who has played very well, too, will continue to get lots of snaps as well.
Pimentel is such a physical beast, it will be good to see if the psychological fix of starting will get his motor running right away. He can be a difference maker.
Pressure would seem to be a crucial aspect of this game. ASU 18 sacks, Cal 5 sacks. However, Cal faced a running team in Minnesota and the Portland State game was a blowout and can be discounted. Even so, it will be interesting to see if the Bears can put the screws to ASU sophomore QB Rudy Carpenter.
Somebody asked about my thoughts on OU-Oregon. I wrote my college notes that run in every Wednesday’s Times. I will have to look around on-line and see if they are up. I received about 12 e-mails on Wednesday telling me I’m an idiot. In short, I saw that Bob Stoops has every right to be mad, but he shouldn’t take it out on Washington. If teams didn’t play conference where there were bad calls, there would be no games.
I will keep checking all your comments for questions and I will add a new category called ANSWERS, where I will post them. keep them coming.
We had a few computer glitches this week that kept some posts from getting up on time, but it’s starting to get better.
Thanks everyone. See you on Saturday.
