    The highlight packages are saying we squeaked out a win after struggling most of the game. They wouldn't have said that if the final score was 37-13.

    The polls don't matter in the end thank goodness, but beauty points still do mean something for the committee - if there's two schools with similar records/schedules they'll choose the one that looked better (i.e. had a better score differential).

    Who cares? We just need to keep winning and they can shove it up their butts. Squeaking out a win is what we did last week and what PSU did tonight.

    That's all we need to do is keep winning everything else will take care of itself

    It's a hard concept for many. To many want video game stats, though they would complain about said stats in a loss.

    You know who had video game stats? Kessler. You know who never came back to win when behind? Kessler.

    Yep. But admit-tingly his situation was unique of course.

    In addition, Oklahoma was in a very competitive game with 0-3 Baylor until late (sounds familiar to some other game we all may have watched?).

    We won a road game in what had to be considered a major trap given the previous two teams were played and the team coming up on a short week. Christ, you'd think the sky is falling after a solid road win in-conference.

    Cody had a much more difficult a situation than Sam has but people still want to bash him.

    It's the "what have you done for me lately" thing.

    Carr is a freshman. That's expected.

    I think we should be playing a little better than scoring only three points in the first quarter and none in the third, against a team such as Cal.

    Cal has a great defense now. Every expert is saying it

    Be prepared to be called a troll, entitled, and stupid by TrojanFireHorse12. Criticism of our team is not allowed.

    But I agree with you. It blows my mind that people will not acknowledge this. Seriously look at how Cal's recruiting classes have been ranked:

    2017 #75
    2016 #26
    2015 #29
    2014 #46

    Meanwhile our worst year has been #10 and we have been as high as #1 in 2015.

    A great defense does not give up 20+ points per game no matter how you try to twist it. Alabama, Washington, Clemson, Auburn, and Georgia are a great defense.

    The same Cal defense that allowed Weber State over 500 yards in offense. Yikes.

    Oklahoma struggled mightily against Baylor and I have not heard that Oklahoma is banged up like us.

    Florida State lost to NC State to go 0-2 and Jesse Palmer said if they don't get better soon, they're going to be in trouble.

    We took over the Cal game in the 2nd half and Cal was supposed to be a 2nd half team and yet Palmer has no respect for USC...He moved TCU up over us into #5

    It's actually ok. We seem to play better when people are dissing us...puts a chip on the shoulder.

    Thank you Trojan Marc. Alabama & Clemson have Elite Defenses. Cal is not Elite but they are very good. By season end, I would guess their defense will be rated at the level of Washington's though. We shall see.

    So did the sky fall ?
    Did we shoot or DC ?
    Did our coaches didn't prepare our team after making thousands of $$
    Is our defense soft as downy ?
    How we do ???

    Some of you in here have to chill the phukk out. You go on a Trojan forum , claim to be a supporter of the football program
    and take shot after shot at everybody because we're tied, or trailing EARLY in the game.

    Ya'll know that EVERYONE USC plays will be up for that game like no other , right ?
    You also know that no team can be perfect every single minute, right ?
    You also know that the ORTHER teams plays, right ?
    You were also aware that we had some guys out due to injury, right ?
    Thus making it tougher for our team due to that fact, right ?

    A lot of you in here are just plain __________. I'll give you the pleasure of filling in the blank.

    4-0 bitches...LIVE with it !!!!

    Fight On !!
