FanPost

Thank You, Southern Cal?

I've seen the following observation elsewhere and Nestor has alluded to it -- though if he came out and said it overtly I might have missed it:

Could it be that the biggest reason the Bruins played better in its last two games and beat Washington and Washington State is that we got blown out by SC and the team responded simply by playing harder and more focused for 40 minutes than it had all season?

Maybe it isn't that Jerime Anderson isn't playing or that the influence of Drew Gordon is finally fading or that Mustafa Abdul-Hamid is a previously undiscovered diamond or that we fully committed to the zone?

Maybe it was nothing more than a good old fashioned trip to the wood shed (what Mike Leach calls "an hour in the electrical closet") courtesy of our cross town rivals that focused the team and coaxed 40, focused minutes out of the team. Maybe sometimes all you need is an embarrassing kick in the ass to put your season into a higher gear?
