Well after first half in Palo Alto the Bruins are down by a score of 7-17 (boxscore). Bruins got the ball first and moved it down to Stanford's goal line in what was easily the most methodical drive of this season. Yet once we got near the goal line Rick Neuheisel's conservatism (running up the middle on essentially 4 straight plays) kept the Bruins out of the end zone.
Since then it has been an Andrew Luck show. He has found cure for aids and cancer. He has already come up with the design for the next generation of space shuttle. Oh and he mostly toyed around with the UCLA D in the long Stanford possessions. Stanford has 17 points. That's because they just had 3 ball control possessions. They rolled up 200+ yards in those three possessions, converting 5 of 7 3rd downs, and never feeling any real pressure from Joe Tresey's vespa clowns.
The extreme optimists in us I can perhaps find a way to convince ourselves that it's worth staying up for this because our offense has been moving the ball and if not for a TO from Brehaut this game would be closer. My suggestion. Don't hold your breath. There is no chance that this garbage defense is going to give us a chance to win this game. That of course is on none other than Neuheisel.
Enjoy the second half.
