Hey, where are my shades? The sun did rise this morning.
For the Warriors, there are lessons from yesterday’s loss to USC.
For one, that was the most difficult challenge they will face this season. After that perfect storm — opening on the road, before 93,000 fans, on a Kleenex-dabbing day when former USC linebacker Junior Seau was mourned, against the nation’s top-ranked team — the rest of the schedule will be less bumpy.
In the third quarter, the Warriors showed what their offense will look like in rhythm: Play-action plays, quick-trap runs, multiple formations.
They eliminated the silly penalties, but now must control the penalties deriving from over-aggressiveness.
Quarterback Sean Schroeder was gritty, cornerback Mike Edwards played well, and Scott Harding played everywhere.
Too bad the Warriors have to wait two weeks for their next game.
