    If There is One Thing We Have Learned...

    First off my apologizes to the moderators because I wasn't sure where to put this.

    Continuing on though...if there is one thing that we have learned this season is that you can't go into halftime 0-21 and expect to win. Case in point Oregon St. vs. USC.

    Absolutely.

    It's kind of ironic that our uniform buddies suffer a similar fate that we did.... down 21-0 at half and come back to make a game of it, only to lose at the end....

    Very good point! I can honestly say that I am still shocked that USC could only muster 21 points Kudos to the Beavers D

    Probably in one of the USC vs. Oregon State threads would've been good.

    Re: If There is One Thing We Have Learned...

    I guess everyone is wrong about ISU! We played almost identically to USC this week, maybe even better!

    Also; next week Oregon State plays Utah. THAT should be a pretty interesting game.

    Re: If There is One Thing We Have Learned...

    How's this for a victory chain?

    USC < Oregon State < Stanford < Arizona State < UNLV

    We actually lost to the best team in the nation!

    Re: If There is One Thing We Have Learned...

    Well actually, you can go down 21 points at half and still win, like last year against Colorado, but that was at home. It is still completely unacceptable to not score a point in the first half.
