Larry Stone rips off the Band-Aid and refuses to mince his words regarding his opinion of the 2018 Huskies, calling them “overhyped” and “underachieving.” Petersen must have known this sort of thing was coming, especially in the wake of his controversial decision to pull Jake Browning in favor of an untested redshirt freshmen who threw a pick-six on his first drive that ultimately proved to give Cal enough points to seal the victory.
