Default Wow Stanford

Quote:
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Led by a backup quarterback, Stanford pulled off a stunner.

Tavita Pritchard threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Mark Bradford on a fourth-and-goal with 49 seconds remaining Saturday night, giving the 41-point underdog Cardinal a 24-23 victory over No. 2 Southern California.

I think this has to be a bigger upset than Appalachian State at Michigan. I'm speechless.

I'm hoping Florida somehow beats LSU in these last 40 seconds just to see what the polls will look like on Monday.

Oops, didn't happen; but I am rooting for all upsets this week. It has just been too weird so far this year. What are they going to do about Texas this week, can they actually be unranked?

No way. I'm sorry but anytime a divison two team comes in and upsurps a top ten team team reigns king.

USC was exposed. John Booty is not a good QB and it was finally shown tonight. See, the Trojans have always been able to waltz through the PAC-10. The level of talent in the PAC-10 has rosen tremenously across the board since USC has garnered all this national attention over the last few years. People want to go to the PAC-10 to compete against the Trojans. They've been able to cakewalk through the schedule but now cannot do that anymore. They were caught and dethroned. Stanford's defense deserves credit here. They took three interceptions off Booty. The PAC-10 is a force to be rekoned with as a whole.

I wanted to Florida to win too but Tebow is just notorious for ups and downs. I really place blame on the head coach, Meyer. Just awful time management. They really should have opened it up with about 1:41 instead of the 1:09. Just poor clock management blowing 29 seconds before calling a timeout on LSU's final drive. He's shown a history of having struggles managing that clock. In the SEC title game last year, I'm pretty sure he burned all 3 timeouts in a single drive early in the 3rd quarter where Florida ended up punting.

So Cal is ALWAYS overrated....along with Texas, Oklahoma, UCLA, Michigan, Notre Dame and all other "top" teams outside the SEC....remember "the best college team in history" last year? (Ohio St.)....they got their teeth kicked when they finally played a real team. Hey Media....go find another pretender. So Cal has been exposed.

i place the blame on LSU, for being ballsy and winning the game.

i'm not blaming Meyer for anything. not the greatest clock management, but it was Les Miles' ballsy playcalling that won the game, Meyer didn't lose it.

Les Miles HAD to be agressive. It was the end of the game. He was down ten points with 7 minutes (not sure exactly) to go. The thing is... the guy went 5 for 5 on fourth downs. That's not really ballsy playing. Luck HAD to be a factor. Two of those 4th down calls went down to the final drive. What I'm trying to say is that you don't get bonus points for calling aggressive plays when your back is against the wall.

I'd say that Les Miles was outcoached by Urban Meyer up until Meyer's mismanagement of the clock.

I caught the end of the game last night and that was fun watching
"Show-Biz/Hollywood" Carrol appear in utter shock as Stanford, a freaking "40 POINT UNDERDOG", win at the end.
And LSU won a close one against a slightly more formidable opponent - the defending NC.
The calls that LSU HC made to help his team win - guys got balls of kryptonite !

So he HAD to go for it on 4th & 1 from the Florida 7?

A FG would have tied the game, but Miles decided to go for the win. Thats guts.
