Question by Bob J: How did Boise State shutdown Oregon’s offense?
I am an Ohio State fan and Boise State was the only team to stop Oregon’s offense. You can say it was the first game of the year and its tough playing on the blue field, but every time Oregon tried running Boise stopped it. Since the Boise game Oregon hasn’t scored less then 24 points. How come no one else was able to hold Oregon under 20 points? Do you think Ohio State can hold Oregon’s offense under 200 yards of rushing?

A D has to stop the Ducks on 1st down. They generally win when they rush for over 10 yds on their first down runs. It sets up everything else…the spread, multi-option formations. The Ducks didn’t have LaMichael James starting during the Boise State game. He’s their bread and butter man on the ground along with Jeremiah “Ain’t No Bullfrog” Masoli. Another way is to call Blount what that loser on Boise State called him after the game. Let’s just say the “N” word should be unsportsmanlike conduct after the game as well. Maybe you OSU fans could persuade the Rose Bowl committee to paint the field red so your shirts can blend in with the turf, much like BSU has done with their uniforms and field this season. OSU must keep the ball away from their offense. Their best D is their O. Do that and you will have a chance. I personally think that the U of O would beat the crap out of BSU now in a rematch. They are very much a high caliber and explosive offensive machine.
