FanPost

That's two years in a row...

that Pete Carroll has allowed his team to show up against a vastly inferior opponent unprepared and ill-equipped to win.  I know that the coaches can't suit up and play the game themselves, but there is absolutely no excuse for getting their asses kicked against Stanford in '07 and now OSU this year.  No excuse. 

Just an embarassing effort (if you can call it that) against a team that the scout team beats routinely if they play tomorrow.  I'm a Carroll fan (I liked him when he was an assistant with the Vikings) -- but as far as I'm concerned, these two losses are as big a statement as the two national championships.  Shame on us, seriously.

I can't remember now what the point spread was against Stanford ... hell, I've tried to forget ... but I bet it's been years since a team has lost  in back to back seasons vs. teams they were favored to beat by so much.  Even in the 90's, I was never embarassed by our teams ... we were overmatched at times, but never played with shi*** effort.  But I'm sad to say I'm embarassed.  Shame on us.  Seriously, shame on us.
