What’s up sports fans? Andrew Luck and the Stanford Cardinal continue in their quest to take the PAC – 12 title. They would have to get by Oregon State to receive that title. In the beginning Stanford struggled. In what has been a season of late offensive pushes for the Cardinal. They’ve definitely been a second half team most of the season. It showed against Oregon State, because by the third quarter Stanford was winning but not by much. They were ahead 17-13 and it appeared that the Beavers would make it a contest. Until the Cardinal let a waterfall of offense destroying the Beavers Dam. Stanford went on the win it 38 – 13. Andrew Luck threw for 3 TD’s and 206 yards.

Resilient Luck performed well in the rain and cold to give his team the win. “I think we have a mature football team,” Cardinal quarterback Andrew Luck said. “We understood it could be a trap game sandwiched between two great teams but I think our football team is mature enough to understand that if we don’t win this game the rest of the games don’t matter.” He’s right about one thing, if  Stanford loses a game the rest won’t matter, because in the NCAA no team in the country will be scrutinized more by a loss in the BCS than Stanford. Alabama, LSU, or any team in the ACC, Big East, or Big Ten can lose a game and still get the No. 1 ranking and the BCS Championship, but not the Cardinal. If Stanford wants the BCS title they will have to be perfect. We all know that isn’t fair, but that’s how east coast wants it. Hey let’s keep it real.

The east coast decides who gets national titles in college sports, not here in the west coast. The only west coast team that won a national title in the last 20 years has been USC. That’s it. No other west coast football team has won that coveted title, and the reason why is because of the power rankings. It’s true Stanford has a great chance this year and the win against Oregon State move them even closer to the possibility of getting a national title. But until they go undefeated they are going to be only in the top ten. Because that’s the way the BCS will place them and allow teams in the east coast like LSU, Alabama, Ohio State or even Florida to all ways be considered a higher ranked school when it comes to college football. It must be frustrating to head coach David Shaw. He and his team are going to be more frustrated because the win came at a huge loss when Chris Owusu was injured on a hit from Oregon State’s cornerback Jordan Poyer helmet to helmet.

“It was a bang-bang play. The ref saw helmet-to-helmet contact. He’s going to make that call every time,” Poyer said. With Owusu out Luck is going to need someone who can fill his shoes, and we have to admit that is a task that isn’t going to be easy. Owusu draws defenses and allow Luck to hit other targets. Without Chris Owusu Stanford’s offensive depth won’t be as strong. Plus the timing of this loss is crucial. The Cardinal has No. 9 Oregon next week. Think they can stay unbeaten or will they fall to the Ducks? Tell me what you think. Remember folks it’s ALLBAYAREASPORTS.COM. Bay Area Sports Magnified!
