What We Learned - Week Eleven

Oregon is merely fowl.
  • Thanks to a false start by California's kicker, Oregon is still waddling towards a date in Glendale.  A false start by the kicker!  That is definitely not who Cal is.
  • The Duck's D showed why the high powered offense has been pretty, but generally irrelevant to this winning streak.
  • Mike Kelly now gets to use the "anyone can beat us" line legitimately for the rest of the season.
South Carolina is man enough.
  • Spurrier took Georgia's defensive play book on Florida and added disciplined assignment football and a stronger sense of urgency and played it to perfection.
  • It helped that St. Urban abandoned the three headed monster and became utterly predictable in his play calling at times.
Texas, however, isn't.
  • They need to win out, including their annual season ending match up with Texas A&M, who is playing lights out football, to be bowl eligible.
  • Offensive coordinator Greg Davis is getting a lot of the heat, as he should, but the 'Horns defense has given up 28, 30, 39 and 33 points since the strong game against Nebraska.  That is against Iowa State, Baylor, Kansas State and Oklahoma State.
  • They can finish no better than tied for 6th in the Big 12 South.

  1. Well then. That is unacceptable. Someone must be fired! That does seem like a lot of points to give up to those teams.
