Ah, but can he throw from his back while looking up at the cold, wet Autzen sky?

Consistency is a must for both the offense and defense this time around. Keep moving the chain and forget about big plays on every down. High percentage passes is the key. And not to struggle for a few more inches after a completion just to get the ball punched out. The defense has to be prepared for the Duck's No Huddle Offensive besides being ready for their Spread Offense. It's a tough job but somebody's (in the Pac-10 that is) got to do it.

I thought Barkley was under the tutalege of Steve "I invented the QB Position" Clarkson? You know Steve, he's the guy that goes around the country telling everyone within earshot that he took Leinart, Clausen, Roethlesberger, J.P. Losman, Barkley, etc. from a QB that couldn't hit his butt with a shovel to a superstar within a few short months. I've seen this clown in action and he nothing more than smoke and mirrors. He doesn't teach anything different than what an high school QB coach should be teaching.
