Win Forever? How about winning in the state of Oregon?
I never got around to mentioning how stressed out some media/officials were at halftime in the pressbox at Reser Stadium. The calm facade broke down real fast with USC trailing 21-0 and panic was the official mood.
Allen Bradford had three plays called for him, supposedly, but Mark Sanchez audibled the first one, Bradford got held up by a falling lineman on the second and Joe McKnight kept the ball on the third.
Did everyone forget this is the week Oregon’s cheerleaders visit the Coliseum? After all, it’s not like the actual game means anything.

Answer Monday continues.
Did Oregon State only want to stop Joe McKnight?
OK, let’s try to answer those Mexican mouthpiece and rougher crowd questions one more time.
Pete Carroll said offensive lineman Zack Heberer could be “out awhile” with a sprained toe. Alex Parsons would replace him.
Damian Williams and Ronald Johnson will get more playing time at wide receiver and the tailback rotation might change, depending on the game plan. Obviously, Stafon Johnson could see an increased role.
We were told it depends on whether USC wants to hammer an opponent (Johnson, C.J. Gable) or attack them with speed (Joe McKnight). I asked why you wouldn’t always want to hammer an opponent but didn’t really get an answer.
Oh, and the backup quarterback job is open again! Shocking!
