Rick Neuheisel has spent many years in the Pac-12 as head coach of the Washington Huskies, the Colorado Buffaloes and the UCLA Bruins and now he’s a studio analyst for the Pac-12 Network. He joined Chad on Flight 750 Thursday to talk about everything he has seen in the conference so far this year.
"He’s as good as anybody in the country and I think he just keeps getting better. If you watch his highlights, you marvel at his ability to fit balls in and see the field as well as he does. I don’t see any weaknesses in his game."
Neuheisel also talked about what he has seen from the duo of Brandin Cooks and Sean Mannion of Oregon State.
“Those two guys have a unique relationship with respect to understanding where the ball should be. There’s a huge amount of trust between the two of them and when you have that, you’re hard to cover.”
And lastly, he talked about the improved play of his former team, the Huskies of Washington.
“I think they’re trying to be Oregon. I think they have realized that Oregon is the class of the North over the long haul – Stanford won the conference a year ago – I think Washington realizes to stop the skid of Oregon dominance over them, they had to play a little bit more like Oregon.”
Take a listen to the great interview and be sure to check him out every weekend on the Pac-12 Network.
