Lol John I respect your opinion, but Stanford is not the better team... Like Sin said, we were playing the worst game of the year and were still leading in the 4th quarter. Plus, if De'Anthony Thomas wasn't an idiot on that long should've-been TD run by Mariota and blocked the guy behind them instead of running ahead to celebrate, the game could've been COMPLETELY different. Instead, we get stopped on 4th down and the momentum completely shifts and gives Stanford the confidence that they can "keep up" with Oregon, both literally and psychologically.
I'll give it to Stanford, their defense showed up and held our offense under 40 points for the first time all year. But don't use the "if we didn't turn the ball over" excuse, because that's what our defense does.
