Oregon had trouble scoring on any defense in the first half in '09 and '10. It wasn't until 2011 that they started boat racing teams in the 1st half. Oregon just wasn't that great on the OL in '09 and '10. Our 2008 OL lost 5 seniors and in 2009 we returned no starters. By 2010 the new group had gotten experienced but they just weren't uber talented.
Again, this isn't a phenomenon exclusive to UW. It was across the board.
Didn't realize that. I hated that we always got our hopes up in the first half only to get demolished in the 2nd half every year
