UCLA always does this. They win a game in the Rose Bowl that no one expected them to win, and they make everyone think they are better than they really are, and then they get exposed. It can be early in the season, like 2008, or late, like 2006, when they beat USC and then lost the Emerald Bowl to a really bad Florida State team.
Fight On! Beat the Red Wolves!
Tom Chaney Memorial Debate Lounge Quote of the Week:
The brick walls are there to stop the people who don't want it badly enough - Randy Pausch
The USC game: I knew that USC would win, but I didn't think it'd be so dominate.
UCLA: WOW ... I turned on the game 1/2 way through the 2nd quarter and saw the score and went to a more exciting game.
And I found it:
Georgia/South Carolina: That was a great defensive game.
Notre Dame/Michigan: Can I tell you that I was shocked to see that ND wasn't ranked this week. Not because they deserved it (which they didn't) but because they are 2-0 and are Notre Dame. Michigan played probably it's worst game EVER, and still had chances to win.
Also, not sure HOW USC didn't get all the 1st place votes. Did they NOT see the game on Saturday???
I'd just like to thank USC for serving up such a severe beat down on Ohio State. Not so much because I'm a fan of USC, but just because I'm a fan of anyone that beats the crap out of OSU.
The only game I actually got to watch this weekend was Friday night's South Florida game (I happened to be at a party with several South Florida alum). I'm glad we pulled off the win, but it was a close game. Very exciting in the room I was in.
That sucked. We got out-coached, out-played, out-everythinged. Fourth quarter was exciting, and with another five minutes we probably would have won it. But, after the crap ball our Ducks played for three quarters they didn't deserve to and Boise St got a win they did deserve. So good for them.
It did suck, though, that we had to lift the Redshirt on our fifth string QB because we lost our third QB of the year already. We now are at the very end of our depth chart and one more injury means snapping directly to the backs. Ouch...
It's looking more certain than ever that USC has no tough games left on its schedule. Only trap games.
What, you don't think Notre Dame is gonna deliver?
You're right though. Their biggest foe is going to be Cal, and that'll still be a push-over win for USC. For the Trojan's sake, I hope that the cupcake schedule doesn't take away their top spot because of the screwy BCS system and strength of schedule garbage. As much as it pains me, I have to say that at this point, a non-USC Championship Game would be criminal.
