I find it silly that people are saying this season won't be a disaster IF Dorrell wins the Pac-10. It ain't gonna happen. Period. Waste of time. There's a better chance of Nestor becoming an 'SC fan than KD winning the Pac-10.
The only thing I find interesting is the similarities between Lavin's final season and KD's final season (this season).
1) Both had embarrassing losses to pathetic out of conference opponents.
Lavin: Branch West, EA Sports, San Diego and Northern Arizona.
Dorrell: Utah, Notre Dame
2) Both started out strong in Pac-10 play.
Lavin: Started 2-0 after beating the two pathetic Washington teams.
Dorrell: Started 3-0 after beating three of the four worst Pac-10 teams.
3) Supporters of both of these idiots then claimed that things weren't too bad because "we can still win the Pac-10" and are "still in first place in the Pac-10. So be positive!" Then they accuse others (those that can see past the end of their nose) that they are just "haters" and should stop being fans if they can't enjoy a win.
Now, we all know what happened to Lavin, as he followed up this 2-0 "success" in the Pac-10 with a dismal 3-13 run. And that sounds about right for the rest of KD's farewell tour, also. I expect 2-4, maybe even 1-5. Let's face it, with this broken offense we have little hope against the big boys in the conference (CAL, UO, SUC, ASU). Add in the fact that we suck on the road, and I see about 1 win.
So, I find it humourous that we are going through the exact same discussion (different sport) that we had less than 5 years ago: it's all very Lavinian.
