Complacency in the Pac10

Pac10 College Football – Pride Came Then The Fall (The Story of USC) — USC clearly celebrated a little too soon this past weekend. From Sunday’s LA Times coverage of the game: ?When you get on a streak…you get to thinking it can never happen,? Carroll said. ?It can. You can get beat.?

Oregon fell prey to complacency as well this week. ?We were still thinking about the Michigan game and I don’t think we were fired up,? Oregon receiver Sammie Parker said. ?Everyone is usually fired up in the locker room, but we were really quiet today. We were just kind of waltzing around and I don’t think we were ready to play. ?

Now the Pac-10 is basically out of the national championship hunt. A lesson to all the other teams and conferences out there.
