[Bumped. Wanton hubris has a warm home at BHGP.--OPS]
We really should call off this Outback Bowl thing. I just spent an hour looking at their stats and this team makes Minnesota look like the other USC. I mean, I have never, ever in my life seen a team with such crappy numbers playing in a bowl. They just, truly, suck. They are a bad team.
Example: they rushed for 7 TDs -- all year. (We: 27.)
Example: they gave up 20 rushing TDs. (We: 7.)
Example: they gave up 16 red zone rush TDs. (We: 5.)
Example: they averaged 2.9 ypc, while they were not scoring any rushing TDs. (We: 4.9, 27.)
Example: they led the SEC in interceptions thrown (24). It's a Spurrier team: passing is its strength. (We threw 9.)
Example: they averaged 35 more passing ypg than we -- but had to throw it 100 more times to get there. So who the heck cares? They throw short, and then they get picked off a lot. It's that crafty OBC again.
Example: their QB with the 115 PER? Which is their best QB numerically? He's benched. (Stanzi? 135.)
They don't have an O-line coach or a receivers coach. (We do!) Spurrier told a national tv camera that Garcia wasn't playing earlier this year because he only knew one play out of the playbook. (Our coach? He's still blanding you to death.) He wears the dumbest pleated khaki shorts in public, and he's got knees that make Ugly Betty look like Uma Thurman.
What are we doing playing this team?
