The Utah game is a hard pill to swallow for a lot of reasons.
#1 OSU should have won.
#2 Ref's shouldn't suck as bad as they did
#3 OSU's kicking game is going to be a problem all year
#4 OSU is a better team than Utah
It's time to move forward and forget Utah. Amazingly, all of the dominoes are tee'd up for OSU to knock down and run the table.
OSU could win all it's games going forward and still win the Pac-10. USC thumped Oregon tonight, and may have lost their QB after a dirty tackle. But the Pac-10 is weak and USC should still win out.
If OSU does the same, OSU wins the Pac-10 and goes to the Rose Bowl.
OSU will have tough games against the Arizona schools this year, Cal is looking good too, and Oregon looms. It's going to be extremely tough to do, but the Beavers could make this year a historic year if they want it bad enough.
I wonder if the players realize the opportunity ahead of them......
