Ok. let me admit first where I was wrong
- UCLA rushing defense is much better than I expected. They held Cal RB's to less than 100 yards and that is an impressive feat.
- Patrick Cowen is better on one leg than most QB's. That guy made the plays when he needed to and kept the Bruins in the game.
- Cal's defensive line is not better than I expected. There was little to no pressure on Cowen from the D line. The only pressure seemed to come from the LB's and they were sent only a couple times.
Honestly, I can't believe we lost this game. I was surprise to be up by only one at the half but I figured that halftime adjustments would be made.
Give all the credit to the Bruins, who played well and showed that when their defense is playing up to their talent level, they can be dominating.
I don't really know what else to say at this point. This loss is WAY more disappointing than last weeks loss to OSU. Perhaps I can live another year so I can see a Rose Bowl before I die.
(More lucid and rational commentary once these feelings of dread die down and I am able to think more clearly. I need another drink.)
