Why Ask Why?

Why did USC burn timeouts against Utah? I’m told it’s because the wrong players were on the field. Why didn’t Randal Grimes play against Utah after his redshirt year got burned? I don’t know the answer to that one.

    At first I thought that Utah was faking the 2 point conversion in order
    to get USC to burn its last timeout – with less than a minute left, not
    having any timeouts would have made overtime a near certainty. I was surprised that after the timeout, Utah still decided to go for
    2.

      With a bad qb under center limiting his already limited options

    Hey wolf, here’s how it works. If you have questions, go to the leader and get answers. Your ratio is 100 to 1, for every 100 questions you come up with, only one comes back with a legitimate answer. ……but yet, you complain about the coaching staff not being able to get the job done…….hypocrite

    • Peaceful Warrior

      Bam! A right cross to Wolf followed by an upper cut. Grimes is the new David Sills

      • Gabby

        Last time I checked, Sills was leading the nation in TD receptions

        • Peaceful Warrior

          Right an Wolf will adopt somebody else when Grimes blows up and leaves after his junior year to NFL.

          • schammer47

            Easy, Peace Nick…………

      • Pete

        I hope your about Grimes being the new Sills. Sills is playing lights out at UWV.

      UW loses their left tackle and the world comes to an end and they get whipped by ASU, and pedersen says how tough it is to lose a lineman and how this will affect them going forward.
      But we lose three scott acts like it’s no big deal. I guess when you’re driven by agenda, you bend and twist reality to suit yourself.

      • schammer47

        In this case, and many others, our Blog Leader is a Pud……..

      • Gabby

        He must have some type of mental condition. Any mental health professionals around here?

      • UtahTrojan

        You are assuming Wolf has some sense of reality.

      • gotroy22

        Do you think Washington recruits the same quality players and has the same depth that USC has? Most of the Pac 12 crumbles after the sixth game when they begin losing key starters. USC just reloads.

        • Pudly76

          No I don’t know, usually I’d say clearly no they don’t. But the level of rs seniors, seniors and rs juniors they are clearly or should be ahead of us due to the sanctions still. And their #1’s are not far off.
          My main point was they lost one, and we lost three.

    Here is a little fun fact: After Hundley’s(ex ruin QB) awful performance yesterday, he is now averaging an INT for every 10 pass attempts for this career

    ……..Wait, one more stat, completion percentage at 47%. He’s making Barkley look like a All-Pro

    • fast fred

      Who is Barkley playing with—–oh that’s right, he is out of the league!!!

      • Gabby

        Really dude, that was lame. Show same respect

      • schammer47

        After making millions of $’s. Ff, If you have time for this Blog, you aren’t makin’ a Dime. Loafer………

  • Theman

    Slow day Whining Wolfie. Timeouts and Grimes redshirt surely put a huge damper on a gutsy win.

  • Sarknado

    I would say SC used their timeouts perfectly. The first two set up toudchdowns and the last one enabled the defense to set up and stopped the two point conversion.. You don’t get any extra points for saving them.

    • Grammymb

      Not exactly. One of the timeouts was used because we had 12 or 13 players on the field.

    • marvienna

      I believe the last one on the two point conversion might have been a little strategy by Kyle Willingham.

      Knowing that the other team has one last timeout, some coaches will often line up to go for two so that the other team will use the last T.O. to set their D. Then when the players come back out, the team kicks the extra point instead. It’s a bit of a head fake so the other team (which would have been USC) doesn’t have any T.O.’s when driving down the field for a game winning FG.

      I thought that’s what Willingham was doing. But he surprised me, and everyone else, by just going for the win right there.

      • gotroy22

        Yes most people were surprised he had that little confidence of his team successfully competing in OT.

    • Goatboy Kiffin

      Except the 2 offensive plays after Gomer’s beloved TOs (Gomer loves calling time out) lost yardage.

      • Sarknado

        That is not true. The after the first timeout, SC was on the 28 and Darnold completed a pass to Mitchell. The second timeout was before the 17 yard completion to Petite for the TD.

    • gotroy22

      You might have needed them if the Utah QB had noticed the uncovered receiver waving his hands in the back of the end zone on the two point conversion.

  • Paul Muad’dib

    Why is Scott Wolf so negative?

    Why is the pac 12 ran so terribly?

    Why is…

  • Globehead

    What questions do you have answers to?

  • Pete

    Grimes is going to play. Special teams.

  • LamontRaymond

    You’d think you’d have sources in the program after all these years…. You’d think someone in the organization would answer your questions. As the chief of staff said last week: time to cultivate better sources.

  • Brent4c

    Here’s A better question, even for the Helton haters. Who is better WR their profession Scott Wolf or Clay Helton?

  • Theman

    We won. Who cares.
