Sorry about that South Florida. Didn't mean to bring you back to reality. You played a great game, you have a pretty flashy quarterback...and by that I mean it looked like he was blinded by a thousand flashes of light the way he played in the second half.
It seemed like some of the defensive intensity was back in this game, although it was still an offensive pass interference call away (although it was pretty blatant) from being a very, very, very tight game with a field goal pending us towards a tie game (no idea if that is good english, but maybe that hypocritical english professor will offer to correct my web grammar when he is done counting the four or five books he has sold...)
The trickery was nice, but I'm sure there will be a groundswell complaining that it took gadgetry to beat them. I don't have any problem with it. Those types of plays work for a reason. Coaches and/or players see chances and then players execute them. And if you look at the fake field goal, South Florida had a pretty good idea it was happening, but some fingertips kept that from being a head scratcher and keeping it a hi-fiver. And I read one comment complaining again about student behavior (albeit a small one) chanting 'overrated.' The comment says this devalues the accomplishment of your team beating someone. I can't disagree more. Teams like Virginia that keep escaping with one or two point wins can make cases that they are good until someone proves them otherwise. A loss to Rutgers doesn't mean South Florida isn't good, but it does mean that Rutgers proved something in taking down a good team. Plus, and I can't believe I need to enlighten people to this again, trash talking is part of the game for a fan. It is not a polite pursuit all the time. Yes, we clap when someone who is injured walks off the field, or we might even clap if someone sets some weird record, but ultimately, we want to cheer for our team, and root, yes root, against the opposing team.
If Auburn had hung on to win last night, which if they were any friend of Rutgers they would have, Rutgers could have had a pretty good ladder argument to be in the top 5. You know, Rutgers beat South Florida which beat Auburn which almost beat LSU. I love those games...but only when AU doesnt get BURNED on a 22 yard td pass with virtually no time on the clock...and if one auburn db can just tip the ball away, I am heading to photoshop to build a ladder with all kinds of logos....but oh well, I will just have to wait for Rutgers to whip WVU and not need a ladder...
