Stanford coach David Shaw (above) is justifiably getting criticized for his playcalling in the Rose Bowl. But some of the fans’ comments I’ve heard the past couple days are ridiculous. Suddenly they claim Shaw is not good enough for USC. Or that Baylor’s Art Briles would be a bad choice because he lost to Central Florida.
And of course Kevin Sumlin cannot coach defense at Texas A&M with Duke scoring 48 points. I even had an ignorant reporter make an anti-Sumlin comment to me this season after he lost at LSU.
Shaw just won his second straight Pac-12 title but he’s not good enough for USC? However USC is good enough to be coached by someone who lost last year’s Las Vegas Bowl to Boise State. Not quite the same as losing to Michigan State in the Rose Bowl.
