PROPS and DROPS from the Buffs' dismantling at the hands of the Huskies and the Broncos bye week:
-DROPS: The book is out on the Buffs and it has been shortened to a brochure, actually it is a piece of paper the size of a fortune cookie paper: pass the ball. The Buff defensive backfield is so decimated by injuries, suspensions, and general crappy play that any sembelance of a passing game will work. Yes, valuable experience is being gained by the players that are back there. Really? Is it valuable experience to see tight ends and receivers 10 yards away from anything in Black and Gold? Washington QB Keith Price, Sean Price, Price Is Right, shit, muthafucking Bob Barker could've thrown for 200 yards on Staurday.
-DROPS: The list of Buff playmakers is already pretty short (see fortune coookie size listed above) and now the news that RB Rodney Stewart is out for some time and the defense's best Player Doug Rippy is lost for season. More freshmen and that "valuable" experience.
-PROPS: The Buffs' offense played halfway decent in the game, especially RB Tony Jones and Keenan Canty. Jones showed some burst and is a bit more physical than Stewart, however the Buffs have to be drooling over a back like UW's Chris Polk, a large bruising back more in the mold of Chris Brown. The smaller backs fill the Buff roster, so recruiting must address the bigger back need.
-DROPS: Everyone has that "go to" play in Madden or EA College Football that they know will get them the yards they need. For Buff OC Eric Bienemy that play is the screen pass. How other teams haven't keyed on the play is a marvel of scouting.
-PROPS: You figure the with the Donks BYE week that there would be some hardcore coaching sessions with Tim Tebow and the staff. But thanks to the new CBA there is no contact allowed between players and coaches. Did the staff leave Timmy a plate of cookies and a stack of plays with little notes ("Tim: this is a good play :) - Foxy") that he could study all week?
