I traveled down to Berkley for the game this weekend and re-watched it when I got home last night.
Obviously, losing Patterson is a big hit, especially if we have to play USC again in the Pac-12 championship game. Our secondary got torched as is, and having our third-string strong safety (Boyett and Patterson were the starter and backup at the start of the season) is definitely more than a little worrisome.
Scales was a good recruit, so hopefully he'll be able to step in and play at least half-way decently.
It's in our hands now though; win out and we'll be in the Natty
