-UCLA really played like they were tired of being a Top 25 team this week. I don't blame KD. Simply put, Ben Olsen is a horrible short-pass quarterback. He can throw it far very well. That is it. He's not mobile. He doesn't look like he knows where he's going at all with the offense he's in. Ever. On top of that, the defense has been figured out to be 100% bark and no bite. The defensive tackles come real fast off the snap, and can screw up a quarterback if he's concerned about getting hit. However getting actual pressure is a different story.

-Also credit Bill Callahan for realizing the short passing strategy and focusing on the strengths of your quarterback was working a little too well and focusing the majority of his plays while they were trying to build their momentum to an inept running game.
-Also credit the Nebraska linebackers for biting on the same lateral movement six times in a row and allowing USC offense to simply run three plays all game with great success.
No kidding. But I'm not a Cowan fan either. I would like to see Forcier be ready to step up by next year but I assume he won't get action until 2009, and Nick Crissman will challenge him then.
