    Talent wise, Oregon was superior to Boise State in 2009. Although, I realize it was his first game as head coach.

    If Kelly had a kicker the last two years then he would be in the ship. Oregon is still under the shadow of USC in that conference, and its amazing how he can coach USC leftovers to be championship caliber players, but as OSU, Aub,LSU,USC,and Stanford proved... hit em in the mouth with big defensive players and they get punch drunk and lose. Stoops was the same coach tressel was at OSU, live off a BCSNC and take advantage of a bad conference and lose to whoever you play in the bowl. Kelly>>>>>>>Stoops

    Yeah in the SEC. Oregon has it SO EASY in the PAC 12 and they blew it against Stanford.

    Maybe he will learn to play for some field goals when he is up by 50 instead of padding his players' stats for the Heisman. Their FG kicker has bit them in the butt 2 years in a row now. Don't blame the guy for missing if he only gets a couple of opportunities a year. Heck he doesnt even get to kick PAT's that much since they go for 2 all the time.

    I was NOT impressed with Oregon last night. They've got some really fast guys but all Stanford did was send a couple of guys out wide to force them back to the middle on each play and they folded. Also, when the game was on the line at the end they played their worst. Them winning the national championship would have been a travesty.

    all the more reason to play in a real conference. As much as he SEC beats up one another the conference reputation has helped Bama a great deal. That Stanford team is fundamentally sound and plays with heart.

    Don't forget folks, Stanford is one of the few teams west of the Mississippi River that actually believes in and plays defense.

    Re: Chip Kelly is the new Bob Stoops!

    "Choking" to me is failure when the pressure suddenly amps up. Kansas St choked yesterday, for sure, because they found out that being #1 is so tough they could only handle it for 6 days. I think Oregon choked a bit as well, all they needed to do was win, although they played a tough team (I watched the second half, and if it wasn't for Cardinal fumbles it would have been a blowout).

    Alabama lost one too, but had been ranked #1 for most of the season. I also think that A&M right now could beat any of the these other teams, but I don't think they would beat Alabama again.

    Agreed. Stanford's LB's and D-Line I'd say was quicker against Oregon (than we were against A&M) but they also lack size as a result. Long story short those guys were able to contain Oregon's QB and not over rush him. They played very disciplined on defense.

    Absolutely. Our fans forget very quickly.
