I remember this game. Khaled Holmes (a potential first round pick) got hurt and Lane Kiffin struggled to patch up the middle of the OL. The result was Barkley getting sacked 4 times, hit 3 other times and pressured 5 more times on top of that.
Stanford has a great defense too. I believe they are 12th. I don't believe a QB should be judged on how they play certain defenses though. Matt Ryan struggled some and he turned out fine
I'm eager to see how Barkley does against the best defense in college football in a couple weeks. That will be a great measuring point for him.
