The fact of the matter is other than LSU no other team was more poised for a title run than USC. And you can even make the argument that LSU lost more talent than USC. I don't even think it is an argument, LSU did lose more talent than USC just like almost every other top 10 team last season. The fact of the matter was, SC just blew their season losing to one of the worst teams in the nation. Don't come here and try and soften the blow by saying "oh we wern't going to contend anyways" cause that's just plain BS.
Was USC overrated going into this season? Sure I can buy that. At the same time were they at top 5 team and a bonafide NC contender? Of course they were. They returned a stacked defense, and other than Kalil a stacked offensive line. Sure they lost some talent at receiver but there are 5 star recruits all over that roster. Saying that SC was "an average football team" is such a crock of ****.
The problem with USC is that they believed their own hype. Although, we are a great team on paper, we really haven't proved anything on the field. We looked good against Nebraska but who hasn't?
I also believe that our coaches aren't doing as great a job as they have in the past. The amount of turnovers and mistakes are just unacceptable. SC has not been ready to play in the last two weeks and that goes to coaching.
Another problem is play calling. We need to pick a running back and stick with him. We also need to stop passing the ball as much. Booty just isn't consistent, hopefully all this heisman talk about him will be put to rest.
As a Notre Dame fan that has suffered the last 5 weeks I loved this weekend!
Just sayin' :grin:
will Marc Sanchez get a shot this week?
John David Booty certainly doesn't deserve the starting job.
heard after I posted that he has a broken finger on hsi throwing hand. I hope its true

I hope they wake up and play like they should be playing. All that talent and they can't beat Stanford, it's a damn shame.
