I think I have figured out what frustrates me about the play calling

    The Miami game we were very heavy underdogs. It was shocking to everyone we took a really big lead. We were in the Orange bowl, and we were playing a very good team.

    The Choak we had the game well in hand.. It was a coaching brain fart. Bobby Bowden made the biggest mistake of his career by not going for 2 at the end.

    I dunno. They took Auburn to the wire in the title game and have been to four straight BCS bowls. Three conference titles. It's not Bama, but it's hard to find anyone consistently better.

    Nothing of consequence? You have a twisted sense of reality when conference titles and BCS bowl games are "nothing of consequence."

    Yeah I'd say they've racked up a ton of great accomplishments. Had they found a way to beat Auburn, or should they win one this year or in the next couple of years, (big IF, I know) it would be considered an incredible run, somewhat comparable to our run in the 90's (not as good but similar results).

    You're kidding, right? In 1994, our starting QB was not knocked out of the game, our team were not double digit underdogs, and our defense wasn't as green as a pool table, which is why Charlie Strong set them up to play prevent.

    Indeed. Since when were MNCs now the minimum standard? Using this standard, Spurrier and Meyer had 15 of 18 years where they won "nothing of consequence."

    Just a difference of opinion. I don't consider a PAC 12 title something particularly noteworthy. I guess you could consider my opinion 'twisted'. Their bowl record under Chip Kelly was 2-2. They have been running a high powered offense for quite a while. When was the last time they won a NC?

    yup - Oregon has been on a hell of a run the last few years.
