Running And Defense

That is what wins college football games: Running the ball and playing good defense.

Consider this: Matt Barkley passed for 493 yards at Arizona, and 484 yards against Oregon and lost those games. Barkley passed for only 222 yards against Arizona State and the Trojans won. The defense and running game (Curtis McNeal) were the keys against Arizona State, not passing.

    Your opinion is like an asshole, everyone has one……maybe women’s soccer is your true calling….just saying

    Wow! …6 of the 12 teams from the Pac 12 are ranked in the BCS top 25…..great showing

    Looking for another ass whipping this weekend

  • TrojanFan

    Trojans opens as a 4 pt favorite, on the ROAD, over the ruins….still no respect for Mora and his kids

    I’ll take Fucla and the points. We suck right now. The BCS is a joke. Oregon is the BEST team in the nation and the one any coach would not want to face.

      Very true!, that Oregon O is a nightmare for any D coordinator….I still like our chances this weekend….Never seen 6 teams ranked this late in the season

        On paper we should kick their @$$. But I honestly think the bRuins “want” it more than we do. Hundley changes the whole picture for Fucla. If we are to win, TJ better pull his head out of his @$$ and LEAD the D. And “F” the bubble screen.

    I see old DIARRHEA of the mouth (not much substance) is at it again. 4 of the total 5 posts are by the same SUCks “brain surgeon”. Mercy Nurse!

      I saw the cute little baby blue sweater, bruinrod bought for you to wear to the big game. and the matching eye patch, nice! But i did notice white crusty stains on the front of it….ouch!

      Silly bucket!, you shouldn’t wear your new sweater when you’re getting your teeth polished….double ouch!

    It was great to see Moody get the ball like he did. He was so explosive last year teams had to defend him,since he was a threat to break it every time. No disrespect to Silas, but this team has missed the heart of Moody.!!!!!!

      Who is Moody?

  • Don’t forget having inflated balls. That seems to be an important element as well.
