Copyright Business Wire 2009. As usual, Oregon's Autzen Stadium was deafeningly loud on Saturday night. The roar of the fans cut through the Pacific fog and cheered the Ducks to a demolition of USC, 47-20, the worst loss in Pete Carroll's tenure as coach.Did you know: until last night, the Trojans had only lost once by double digits since Carroll took over in 2001Well, not anymore. The Ducks absolutely lit up the USC defense, and did a great job containing the Trojans' rushing and passing attacks as well.You can bet the only fans cheering at or near the decibel level of Autzen were fans of the Boise State Broncos.Oregon's resounding win, aside from profoundly altering the Pac-10 power rankings, now makes Boise State look championship-caliber.For people with a good memory, the Boise State Broncos destroyed this Oregon team in the first week of the season. Almost to the point where the two Oregon teams don't appear to be the same.
It was a wonder the Ducks scored the eight points they did in the 19-8 loss.Boise's defense shut down the Ducks' running game with consistent penetration of the offensive line, and their offense moved the ball consistently, courtesy of a lot of fancy moves from QB Kellen Moore.The 19-8 final score doesn't come close to telling the whole story. Hidden in that score is a safety of LeGarrette Blount (whom you might have heard of), a cavalier two-point conversion of the sort that Oregon usually scores on teams, and a whole lot of tackles for a loss.And I don't think Oregon fans would disagree: it was ugly. It looked like Chip Kelly had no control over his team, and worse, former Ducks coach Mike Bellotti appeared to undermine Kelly by taking him to task on the sidelines.Who would've thought Kelly capable of the steady hand it takes to right the ship and compete for the Pac-10 championship If this results in a BCS bowl, he's your Coach of the Year, hands down.But all I'm intending in this praise of Oregon is to make sure credit is given in the other places it's due, and that is to Boise State.Their strength of schedule should get a huge boost from the win, irregardless of a) when the two teams played, b) whether it was the first game of Kelly's tenure, or c) whether the Ducks were replacing three starters on the offensive line.The good news is, the AP poll bears this out in as close to a fair manner as possible. Cincinnati took USC's place ahead of the Broncos.And to make matters worse, there are no remaining games in Boise's schedule that will put them back into the conversation. Suppositions, questions, complaints, what-ifs...these are probably the remains of Boise's shot at the national title game.It reminds me of Texas complaining last year about the system the Big 12 used in determining the winner of the Big 12 South in the event of a three-way tie. The highest ranked BCS team got the nod, a system that is replicated in every other divided conference.Texas and Boise getting snubbed proves it's not only win or lose, nor how you play the game, but when you play the game.College football is a linear story.
