    You better be able to win a handful of shootouts every year if you want to be a good college football team. College defenses cannot handle up-tempo offenses.

    So recruiting depth and speed at skill positions is important...?

    Yes that's the truth and I haven't had the confidence that CU could be in a shootout and win that game in a long time. That is one thing to watch for CU this season.

    Texas Tech-SMU could be a huge shootout tonight. USC should thank its lucky stars that June Jones isn't still in Hawaii.

    You need speed at the skill positions and a ****load of DBs.

    You also need a team that takes it's conditioning very seriously. That's where team leaders come in. You need guys leading conditioning in the summer and outside of practice.

    Something that was reinforced for me last night

    A) USC QBs (both of them) look very confused, especially when getting drilled on a frequent basis....LOVED the safety
    2) Lee - first game jitters or a little overhyped (fumbled punts, couldn't break tackles, dropped more than a few routine passes)
    d) Kiffin is becoming even more of a whiny bi+ch

    Fortunately for USC, they have some time to work out some kinks. They have home against Wash St, home against BC, and home against Utah St before going to Arizona St.

    And all of those teams are better than Hawaii.

    So it won't matter if our Defense is awful as long as our Offense is just a tad better? Woooooo

    Offense does rule most of the college football landscape. Although, it's pretty clear why the SEC is the top conference in football (it's not the offense). If you want to get to an elite level, you need an elite defense.

    I think the SEC has proven they can handle the up-tempo, spread offense, as they have superior athletes.
    But what they have yet had to prove is if they can handle that type of offense when the offense has SEC caliber athletes.

    aTm made noise last year. Watching USC under Monte Kiffen just get abused by Oregon still makes me wonder if the SEC won't adapt soon enough.

    What was reinforced to me. 1 or 2 stud skill players can equal 11 decent players on the other side of the ball at the college and high school level. If one of those studs have a bad game, your in trouble. Also, almost everyone is going to a zone read style in some shape or manner, usc has a very boring offense and are going to lose some games.
