California, Middle Tennessee Struggling
It’s interesting. As the season progresses, you start to see which victories are really impressive and which losses perhaps looked worse at the time, etc. For example, California was expected to compete for a national title. The Golden Bears seemed to have all the pieces if quarterback Kevin Riley could get it together. They blasted Maryland, 52-13. Then this turned into the same old Cal team that has not been able to handle lofty expectations. California is 0-2 in the Pacific-10 after losses to Oregon and USC by a combined score of 72-6. Wow. Who would have imagined that?
Let’s take a look at Middle Tennessee. The Blue Raiders had looked like a decent team until last night. They beat Memphis, 31-14. And they beat Maryland, 32-31, in College Park. But the Blue Raiders weren’t really competitive last night at Troy, losing 31-7. Middle Tennessee was just 1 of 10 on third-down conversions at halftime. Does Maryland’s loss to the Blue Raiders look worse now?
