    Yeah, that was annoying listening to that guy act astonished that Oregon St wasn't lining up to kick the FG with 15 or so seconds left, instead trying to take a shot at throwing it in the endzone... also mentioned that Oregon St might be getting too "greedy." I appreciate the conservative philosophy, but to act astonished that a coach would do anything but play it 100% ultra-conservative is foolish.

    However, most annoying thing I heard from the announcers, was in the second half, when the one announcer some how came up with this idea that USC choking to a 24-point underdog made the Pac-10 look a lot better than people thought. I guess that guy didn't know that Oregon St got beat 14-45 by Penn State two weeks ago (Penn St put up 454 yards of total offense on them).

    Since the advent of the Les Miles era @ LSU, I don't even appreciate conservatism in football anymore. Play to win, baby.

    That was Craig James. He's horrible. I don't know how the guy has a job in broadcasting. Uninformed and annoying. What a great combo.

    It was like 2nd down with 25 seconds to go before the half and he's chastising them for actually trying to score a touchdown.

    Good info here.

    This year it is a worse situation for USC as so many teams are still undefeated and may mean they fall much harder.

    That is officially LSU's mantra in case people didn't know.

    "Play to win" means different things to those that believe in being conservative and those that don't (split camp there).

    I vote for what I read in Red55's signature:

    "As always, Les Miles isn't afraid to gamble, going for the touchdown at the end when a field goal would do. This is a fearless team, and it plays like it." -- College Football News

    Actually, I think Les would say "Play for victory."

    Wrong!:hihi:


    Also, a trend has been established and the media may be getting a litle tired of the Condoms proving them wrong time after time.

    Did the announcer call them selfish or greedy? Thought I remember him calling them greedy, but maybe that was another play.
