Huh. What's this strange feeling I'm feeling?

    I agree with TRA that the enthusiasm is building for the Trojan football team. I can only hope that this year will be as big a surprise as was the Standford game result, minus the first 17 minutes.

    Hope springs eternal when a certain coach is not involved in play calling, defensive strategy, or making milking motions when the team is steamrolling the field.

    I get worried that we get up for the bigger games but the enthusiasm diminishes for the other ones. If we can keep up the intensity we should throttle BYU.

    I think if SC wins tomorrow, it might actually be appropriate to move this to the football board?

    I know what you mean. Like Sarkisian's first year. Solid win again Fresno St. to open that season and then a win against Stanford. Those were followed by a complete flop against Boston College and then an entire season that felt like USC needed at least a three touchdown lead in every game, because it was always going to let its opponents back into the game in the 4th quarter.

    I don't think there's any doubt who the better team is. However the Trojans are a young team and this will be their first road trip, so I'm cautiously optimistic, either a tight game or a blow out with Trojans coming out on top either way.

    Not looking for style points tomorrow. Just get the hell out of Provo with a win.

    USC s a four point favorite in LAs Vegas. That's pretty close to being an even game, or so the oddsmakers think..

    Home team usually gets an automatic 3 points. So in reality they're predicting USC to be a td better then BYU

    I'd actually like to see this serve as an off-topic game day thread since the one on the football forum frequently devolves into a shit show. As soon as we're down 3-0 you start seeing posts about how the sky is falling and Urban Meyer.

    The way that game started out could you blame them? I mean, I’m sick and tired of the CUM love but maybe, just maybe, we’ve turned a corner?

    Let’s just hope it’s not a cul de sac....

    I'm referring to
    game day threads in general, not specifically the one from last week. They can quickly become of melting pot of unstable noobs, trolls, and drunks. I think it's too early to tell whether or not we've turned a corner but how we finished on Saturday is encouraging.
