Some goodies to rock your Friday!!
The greatest college football team in the history of man kind goes down in flames and the pundits from MSM are pouring it on from all over. Here are some treats for everyone on Bruin Nation!
ESPN's Schlabach says Trojies should drop out of top 10:
Still, many college football pundits were quick to anoint USC as the team to beat in 2008. The Trojans beat up Virginia, which was blasted by Connecticut 45-10 in its third game. Then the Trojans dominated the Buckeyes, who narrowly beat Ohio and Troy, and didn't have tailback Chris "Beanie" Wells when they played USC in the Coliseum.
We were all blinded by USC's stable of pretty tailbacks and prettier Song Girls. We forgot this was the same school that lost to Stanford and UCLA and Oregon State during the previous three seasons.
The Trojans should suffer the same fate Ohio State did two weeks ago. The Buckeyes fell eight spots to No. 13 in the Associated Press poll after losing badly at USC. That same plunge is exactly what the Trojans deserve.
USC isn't the No. 1 team in the country. It didn't even look like a top-10 team against Oregon State.
Ted Miller reports how Petey's arrogant thugs never learned their lesson:
Last year, USC went down as a 41-point favorite at home to Stanford.
On Thursday, USC went down as a 25-point favorite at Oregon State.
What does it mean?
It means lessons from 2007 about no gimmes in college football weren't learned.
It means a team needs to exhibit more than talent alone if it wants to compete for a national championship.
Dodd on CBS is brutal:
Conference games are tougher.
Orange hurts their eyes.
No one said anything about tackling a munchkin.
The dog ate their homework.
The heartening thing is in USC's world, this was no monster upset. Oregon State was only a 25-point underdog Thursday night to the Trojans. Stanford, now that was an upset. And part of a disturbing trend. The No. 1 Trojans just ruined their national championship chase with another inexplicable gag job against an inferior opponent.
What, USC had to play the rest of its schedule after the Ohio State game? Apparently. The reminder came when Oregon State's 5-foot-7 Jacquizz Rodgers started running through arm tackles. That is, when Trojans defenders got arms on him at all.
Damn! That will leave a mark!!!
You think those aholes are missing Norm Chow? SuC has been nothing but an over-rated joke since Peetie ran Norm out of South Central.
TrOJans suck. They always sucked and now they will keep on sucking.
