    Love the series you’ve put together.   I hope you analyze the defeats as thoroughly as the victories.   For example, I thought play calling inside the ten vs. Auburn was too stubborn (all their TDs took advantage of AU’s speed and strength using misdirection-something he neglected twice on 4th and 1 with the game in the balance in the second half).

    Meanwhile, against LSU Chip called a brilliant game, but it was poorly executed (not to blame Darron Thomas, but he played under par in both games, and in the LSU game, victory was ours for the taking).

    In my opinion, the NFL caliber Defensive Lineman were only a factor because the Defensive strategy for both SEC teams was to force Oregon to drive the entire field instead of breaking big plays for TDs.   Chip adjusted well to that strategy in the LSU game. 

    I don’t have the know how to show what I’m talking about on video, but I’ll put some effort into that.  Seeing it is easier than reading it.  

    Thanks again for this awesome website-I’ll watch the sponsors, and eventually donate-this site is more than worth it.

       Hello Mike,

      I see myself doing a “What Went Wrong, and Why we will Beat USC in 2012” because there are so many themes to ponder, but the other two you referred to….I and others have talked about them enough for me.  We had our chances in both and didn’t get it done.

      The other problem with it is….I am a very poor loser.  I don’t have digital games of the Boise State or Stanford losses of 09 because….that was before my video-creation days, and if we lost–I ash-canned those suckers and never want to see them again.

      It was VERY VERY hard to do a video after the LSU and USC losses this year.  I don’t even want to LOOK at a second of the game…and I gotta make a video about it?  Sucks.

      The message boards have rehashed endlessly the Auburn and LSU losses…and I’m going to let them lie. I agree with your comments however, on them.

      Thanks for your comments, and I appreciate any support-we have a ton to add to the site to continue our pattern of doing things not done anywhere on fan sites.  But it takes a lot of money…thus the advertisers coming up, but it probably won’t be enough.

    Very nice Charles.  I think with our two QB’s who throw bb’s along with loving to run and confuse the defense Chip will have even more options than last year.

  3. I love how harbaugh looks perplexed lol
