"Anthony's come out like we hoped he would," Carroll said. "He was always capable of that, but now we can throw to him."

Whether that was a veiled dig at Mark Sanchez or Aaron Corp or Mitch Mustain, who knows?

Scott, Carroll is obviously referring to McCoy's inconsistency earlier in his career. How you can interpret a 'veiled dig' from it is beyond me, but at least you are consistent.

The defensive linemen were fantastic in last week's ND victory. However, the points scored by ND were there. Should've, could've, would've done even better with some intermittent blitzing by the secondary.

Sometimes by disrupting their QB enough and we'll see hurry up incompletes and interceptions.
Better than when there wasn't enough pass rush like UCLA's final scoring drive in 2007 and there was that 4th down play after a time-out.

Oregon is gonna get beat this weekend by Washington, so osu this weekend at home could be more of an issue than people realize.

O'Dowd's injury from the beginning of the year hasn't healed. O'Dowd has been at 80% since Ohio State and Coach Ruehl is reducing practice reps and game time to allow O'Dowd to heal. O'Dowd is a beast and has done a 'good job', but not the all-american performance he is capable of doing. Fortunately, Byers is also an all-american and can step in. The concern now becomes left guard ... let's cross our fingers that Butch steps up and plays well until O'Dowd is 100%. If not, O'Dowd will be forced back onto the field and will likely have an '80%' season ...
