It really really sucks to lose a game based on pathetic execution. From a false start, to a missed field goal, to a muffed punt. Oregon didn't even have to make incredible plays. They just had to play competently. But they didn't. Though executing wouldn't have ensured victory, it would have given at least given us a chance. What a frustrating loss.
There is more blame to go around of course. Our passing performance on offense was atrocious. And due to miscues, Cal scored 14 of their points on drives of 5 yards or less, which was another difference in the game.
Also, we lost the blog bet, so the taglines at the top of the blog will be written by the guys at Cal Golden Blogs for a week. That will at least be entertaining. It'll give us a chance to laugh at our pain.
