I'm Matt Morris with Comcast sports net. He and Allen and big impact in his very first collegiate game. Surprising to you. It wasn't surprising we've watched practice. -- now. He's performed like there practice so. He's a very good football player no question about it. It's one game you know so -- we have to make sure not to get too carried away with it. He's a great kid no more -- great football players great kid. Really into him and a great addition. To -- from the chemistry team as well. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- But the Colorado will be a future pompous former executive this game more meaning to you as as the -- coach. Mom I really mean that's that's not something that. You know doesn't really matter. You know when they're coming into our conference this year is this year's game and they're very good football team. Played really well last year last week against Colorado State. And so but you know as far as I don't even know how of these going to be divided when it becomes a -- well so. But no this is all about just this -- -- about the future. Weren't coach morning Brooklyn channel four. Back Keenan. Here's a -- 3000 miles away Carolina's. -- you share with us the the first time you saw either. On tape or or or or or -- in person just that kind of what. Your impressions were. Using our camp a few years ago. Couple years ago whatever was. Very evident that time that he was. He was gifted and no question about it on both sides of the football. In high school political sides of the ball and he's a great defense players well and so. At that point we would start recruiting him. You know -- just stuck with it and fortunately. You know was able to. To have him come here and ten cal. He's. You know he's he's. He's done what we thought he would do. All summer long you you heard from quarterbacks and he's doing great things like that and so. But. You know I think what most impressive things about him is is how he's comprehend the offense so quickly anytime you have a freshman. True freshman. After just one kid it's need to make any mental mistakes in the day which is very unusual for a true freshman. Jonathan opens Oakland Tribune on jeopardy you know Roderick Q -- he was here. And Hughes said that a lot of stuff because it was this offense come from as -- you expect to see me. Some -- to see him. Yeah you know I think conceptually. You know -- we have good times here is a great job when he was here. You know the conceptually there are some things that I think that they that they do not all of it you know so it's. You know over the last few years it's obvious he's grown and and has some new ideas about things but there're some concepts -- -- Or something he took from his time here. You know not not really I mean it's. You know and watching the game wasn't any. It wasn't anything glaring that you can say this is what to do owners you know anything like that they've they've done a nice job mixing things up. -- Closer way. -- that. Right. Mike -- yeah. Okay. Well no penalties though they kids you think here you put him anymore but. -- While the sophisticated stuff. Took do you prefer the Unocal microphone on your laughter your -- and we return talking to team if you earlier today after practice you've made reference to his brother. -- he potential starting quarterback we here at some point you can -- Next year. Sure yeah he will compete for the job. And be here this break hopefully. Gets -- academic work. But yeah people. You compete for. Playing. -- -- you played you know quite a bit of Buffalo's. It's it's nothing new to him. -- Mike -- ABC really surprising how explosive your offense was. You know it it's really hard to tell Mike you know it's. You know. Playing Davis even though have a lot of respect for them they played very very hard. The speed of the game going to be a lot different this week and so. Much more challenging. In them but I was pleased anytime you come up the first game you know you're worried about. You know the first game jitters are. You know false start penalties substitution. Errors you know what happened. You know all the communication things it could go on and we really didn't have any of that we have women. Actually 22 false starts more delay game and you know besides that I think it was pretty clean and it's you know it's nice to see that there's some playmakers on the field when yeah Marvin on one side and -- and and Michael Calvin your time no 36 with three receivers that can run. Jeremy Ross is well. You know so and then Shane you know -- played pretty decent -- didn't get in the open field. Or in the secondary but him an -- did a nice job and so I think there's some some potential there to be able to spread the ball around. I don't and other -- are gonna save team in on the details so. It's your little tougher for -- -- here on out. Yeah but. But that's. That's the beauty of having some other guys out there you know if they're gonna do stuff to him then. Then you have Marvin and -- and played great made a great catch on the long ball and did a real nice job so. And the like I said there's some other guys -- as well in the tight ends and the backs and he knows so. It's -- I don't think they can there's there's enough. Talent across the -- word that I don't think they can just focus on one guy. Don't remember she appearance senator Tom. Specifically what sort of things does Colorado do offensively -- they have any real play makers -- if you talk about the quarterback open. Yeah they do. Yeah I think that's the difference between -- thirteen this year and their team last year's. They have more speed at the receiver position Scotty McKnight we really can only play maker last year than that I saw. And now they have a few others that can really run. Instruction fielding. And do stuff with the ball and once they catch it and then they have two running backs are very good players. Their quarterback is he can he can hurt you in the in the passing game any can pull that Monroe football is very athletic. So we're gonna have to keep him contained. Are you can make some big plays there and then they averaged 300 pounds along the front so there big physical offensive line as well also. Very good football team. Plenty of speed and have plenty of size strength and into -- is well. Coach I was wondering if you saw B Boise State Virginia Tech game last night and he did it. Could have been maybe a statement game for West Coast football. Well you boys he's been doing that for awhile and those are two very good football teams are here we played Virginia Tech in a bowl game. Years ago and so -- know what type of talent they have. And I didn't get to watch the game additional highlights. Looks like it was a great football game. The end. You know but the -- of Boise has. You know -- obviously being in the west -- one of the best football teams in the country so if that's making the statement that is. You know I think to -- on that stage is as they have numerous times. They've always respond to the child and so yeah I do I think. You know -- one investing in the country. Dusty not repeat it however it's going next -- are gonna resolution without game. That I have not heard anything about that and you know I'm I'm sure the holes. Scheduling is gonna turn upside down some you know when they come out with the divisions and who's gonna play who then. I assume that we'll get resolved at that point but I haven't heard anything about them. Any other questions for coach. -- -- -- -- Again we'll Billy California and and you kind of two new starters like Florida a this -- him how to I didn't look. Shrink in Dallas. -- slinky and she'll wear the boat that you starters and then. And Dallas have played some some -- -- most again. But that they did all right we can improve their they they need to. We all need to be better front everywhere where we need to to be better each and every week and that's the whole thing about the process of is all we can continue to improve each week. And that's the goal and so it. But they please find -- a dumb play really well senator when he went and. -- given up you know. They went on Saturday. Would you have gotten more out of any. True inner squad game. And playing Davis perhaps -- from a competitive standpoint preparing them. The rest of the season. -- -- My room. That you it's always nice -- Please someone. And Davis played very hard right give their defense a lot of credit that -- played very part of -- did some nice things -- That -- safety who tackle very well make some plays number twenty. You know but it's always nice to have all your guys on one sideline. And playing some different. That you would you prepare for. You Davis got a lot of football games -- -- -- to win their conference. And you know I can see -- doing that for -- I think that level for.
the field when yeah Marvin on one side and and and Michael Calvin your time no 36 with three receivers that can run. Jeremy Ross is well. You know so and then Shane you know played pretty decent didn't get in the open field. Or in the secondary
