Cardinal run against Trojans ends in disappointment

Original post made on Nov 16, 2008

Toby Gerhart reached 1,000 yards for the season but he wasn't going to celebrate. "It's not bittersweet," he said. "It's just bitter." Stanford looked good early on Saturday but was unable to hold down visiting USC, losing 45-23, in a Pac-10 football game. Gerhart rushed for 101 yards and has 1,033 on the season, the most by a Stanford runner since Tommy Vardell's school record 1,084 in 1991.

You can always try to keep the USC Trojans down, but often it will not work. They have better players, recruit better, and for the past 7 years under Pete Carroll have been the standard baearer of the Pac-10. That's a fact you can argue, but not deny They have never been out of the BCS and Coaches polls top ten under Carroll.More than once have they allowed ponts, then put up twice as many or more on the scoreboard. That score could have been 45-17. To all you fans wearing that "biggest upset" tee-shrt, do you have any to spare? I need some to war the car.
