The Silver Bullet

An opinion in popular sports

The Spartans drop to 0-1

The San Jose State Spartans took their first loss of the season yesterday, but not after making a statement versus Pac-10 giant University of Washington Huskies. The Spartans were never out of this game as Adam Tafralis went 28 for 35 with almost 300 yards passing, likely his best performance of his college career.

Now, i have long been a SJSU football fan, but is there something brewing here? A nail biter against a Pac 10 team. For big-time division schools, game 1 of the college season is sometimes seen as a warm-up. National Champion Texas taking on wee Northern Texas and blowing them out cold is a good example of this. But when the Spartans take UW down to the final minutes, putting the pressure on the home team with just over two minutes left, doesn’t that seem out of place for our lowly San Jose St. team?

It sucks to lose, but dropping the first game against a major division school by only five points is fine with me, and should be look on as a great warm up for a WAC season.

Dick Tomey, I salute you! Let’s see these Spartans break the top three in the WAC!
