SILVER ELITE
cal baptist isn’t eligible for the playoffs for 2 more years.
 
Game to watch-

SMC vs. Pepperdine

Rationale-
-SMC looked as good as Oregon vs. a common opponent , SAC State. Oregon beat Stanford and Pepp lost to Stanford.
-play at home
-better coach at SMC than previous ones

Pepperdine seems to have trouble with SMC in Moraga for some strange reason.

Did you watch the UO v Sac State game? Not sure too many conclusions can be drawn from that one (and certainly not at game that would gather non-friends/non-family members to the stream of Sac State’s feed)

Interesting that USC is #1 in your assessment despite a loss and ASU moves to #4 b/c they beat USC but Stanford drops all the way out. You may be right - w/o a non-conference bunch of games to do some assessing, there may be wild shifts on a game-by-game basis. I’d expect Stanford to dispatch OSU pretty easily.

Yeah I watched the rugby match between the two.
Your dd is doing well in the box and btw.

Stanford on paper looks great (all those WNT players) but I saw a lot of uncharacteristic unforced turnovers by Stanford. Picket looked great out there but she was even guilty of passing to the other team unforced. If OSU sits back Stanford will have to be precise to crack that.
 
USC was caught early I think on a set piece. Happens.

Stanford has been down 2x already by 2 goals this year! That’s a concern. I know Girma is out but it’s next WNT player up so no excuses. Maybe players have injuries?

What I took for the sac state game was sac did a good job w team defense. Clearly they wanted to muck the game up on that cow pasture and they did.

Things can change as it's only two games, but Stanford has looked anemic finishing their chances. Their service in the 2nd half of OU was ugly - corners, crosses, and chips to the middle - except for Pickett. All that possession doesn't mean much if you can't finish.
