Check out the above video of Oregon State QB Ryan Katz talking about James Rodgers, the offense, Jordan Jenkins and the season-opening TCU game.
He was very efficient in his two drives as he led the offense to two TDs. He hit Rodgers on a 48-yarder and Jenkins on the goal line.
Here’s a link to the full story in Wednesday’s GT. Here are the individual stats.
Jordan Jenkins, 6-104; Malcolm Marable, 4-12; Ryan McCants, 8-10; Darrell Catchings, 1-4; Jack Lomax, 1-(-5); Cody Vaz, 3-(-13); Sean Mannion, 3-(-15).
Cody Vaz, 20-12-1-149-2; Ryan Katz, 5-4-0-100-2; Jack Lomax, 11-3-1-68-0; Sean Mannion, 9-6-0-51-0.
Jordan Jenkins, 5-84-2; James Rodgers, 3-81-1; Micah Hatfield, 4-67; Kevan Walker, 4-55; John Reese, 2-31; Brett Ackerman, 1-14; Darrell Catchings, 2-10; Colby Prince, 1-9; Ryan McCants, 1-6; Joe Halahuni, 1-5; Clayton York, 1-5.
The offense is going to move the ball in games. Katz will be fine and the offensive talent around him will help him.
“I thought we played really well.” Jenkins said. “There are a few things to clean up, but we have a long way to go.”
The defense, well, I’m worried. LB Dwight Roberson said stopping the run was an issue last scrimmage when Jenkins and Ryan McCants combined for more than 100 yards. This time Jenkins topped 100 on his own. He had runs of 41, 25 and 22 yards.
And then there were the long passes Katz completed. He and Rodgers have a good connection, but there are some stellar passing combinations in the Pac-10.
CB James Dockery (hamstring) sat out. He said he’ll be fine. … No decisions on the MLB spot. … PK Justin Kahut (back) kicked today.
