Come on, Oregon. Beat LSU today. I'm sick of hearing this myth that Kelly can't win in "big" games. Apparently sports media only counts the big games we've lost. Never mind that Oregon beat Tennessee at their home, or beat USC twice in the last two years. And don't give me the USC is down nonsense. Kelly has beat Pete Carroll two out of three times when USC wasn't under NCAA punishment.
Never mind we came back to beat Stanford last year in a huge game. Or won a Sun Bowl and a Holiday Bowl under Chip Kelly as OC and Nick Alliotti as DC. Aside from Chip's promotion to head coach, he still runs the offense and Nick Alliotti still runs the defense.
Never mind that the first loss to Boise State came because Masoli had been knocked out of the game with a cheap shot and we had no one to play quarterback (Sorry, Chris Harper doesn't count) until they burned DT's redshirt. Never mind that DT almost brought them back to win in one quarter of play. Never mind that the second loss to Boise came because our OLine was totally green. Never mind that same DC, Justin Wilcox, who was supposedly Oregon's kryptonite was also the DC for Tennessee who we crushed.
Never mind that Terrelle Pryor had one of the best game of his life in the Rose Bowl, or that Blount fumbled out of the end zone when Oregon was driving to score. Never mind that Auburn needed a last second field goal and a lucky break on a fluke play to win the BCS title game.
But apparently none of that matters because we can't win the big game. So for the love of God, Oregon please win today so I don't have to listen to this nonsense anymore.
