There’s been some weird college football on today. First, we watched Pitt “upset” Virginia Tech, as if Virginia Tech can enter a season without losing at least one meaningful game early. Then we saw a bunch of blowouts.
Now there’s the University of Spoiled Children against Stanford.
And Stanford is actually leading with about 4 minutes left in the fourth quarter. Stanford is pounding the ball with the run against the vaunted USC defense.
I found this game interesting. The Condoms are talking trash to Stanford players. You’d think USC is the one who actually won three games in a row in this series.
But now that USC has gotten the last series, Matt Barkley needs an overturned call on 4th down to keep USC’s hopes alive.
Stanford is blitzing Barkley out of the ground; they are generating such pass rush, he’s not even having a chance to get his feet set.
4th and forever for USC after a couple of penalties and a couple of sacks. USC fails, and its over to Stanford on downs. Game over, USC over, man am I glad.
Here’s some things we should find evident:
– Coach Lame Kiffin is relying purely on athletic ability for his team to win games
– I’m not questioning Matt Barkley’s talent level but I’m always going to wonder about a guy’s heart when he goes back to school. Rarely does a guy ever get better after returning for year 4. Yeah, I know about Peyton Manning. But he didn’t win a national title. Neither did Andrew Luck, Sam Bradford or St. Tebow. The thing is, what are you coming back for?
– USC football is a douchebag factory on the same level as Duke basketball
