The Silver Bullet

An opinion in popular sports

Stumbling

In what was supposed to  be a another year of building for the now rejuvinated San Jose State football program has taken a sloppy start. Tomey’s boys did not fare well against the heavily favored Pac-10 opponent Arizona State.  The Sun Devils ran the ball down the Spartans throat, scoring three times on the ground and putting SJSU away before the end of the first half.

The Box Score doesn’t say a whole lot. Our leading rusher was Trafalis (QB) with 19 yards. yes! Our punter Prather booted one 62 yards. oh Boy! It’s not the way we would hoped to begin this campaign.

Unfortunately, there is nothing to take away from this contest. Sure, It’s the first game of the season, and Dick Tomey’s squad is shaking off the cobwebs… It just doesn’t feel like the New Mexico Bowl champions we saw last season. The team that upset Stanford (well, who couldn’t), who put Washington on the brink, and changed their image and position in the Western Athletic Conference.

This is not that team.

Coach Tomey has some work to do…

Spartans fall 45-3.
