So Stanford hangs 55 on SC today, and Oregon pasted them a couple of weeks back. OSU however, put 15 on the board and lost at home. What once looked like another discouraging loss for OSU vs. top non-B10 teams, but with the somewhat hopeful sign of losing less embarrassingly than in pervious years, now looks just as bad as past years, given SC getting exposed. So the question remains, just how bad, comparatively, is the B10? I would have said better than the ACC or BE before the season, but now I think you really have to wonder. When the conference champion can't beat the 3rd best team in the PAC10, it's an interesting speculation.
Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
