    Let us not forget. We currently have the second longest winning streak in Div 1. And the only team other than the leader, Oklahoma, to have a double digit streak. Come on. Show some appreciation.

    If that's all we got, Washington State, UCLA and Washington will light up secondary like a Christmas tree

    As would I, but they'll be talking about this one for a long time...

    We still have a lot to work on, but at least we won. Clay Helton teams find a way to win. Cal seems improved this year, next week is not the gimme I thought it was, but I still think we win. As long as we keep improving and learn from these mistakes, we will do well.

    If we don't find a pass rush when we need it, you bet they will. Our secondary got away with some stuff tonight, but when you give a guy consistent time to throw, you'll get lit up. This is especially true when you have a 5'11" CB trying to cover a 6' 6" receiver. He's gotta have help in those situations.

    We were fortunate that they have an inexperienced QB.

    Most disappointed people at the game...were the TV announcers. When did they become Texas homers? Yeah, they played a great game but come on...

    Especially back in Pac12 play with Pac12 refs. These refs, whoever they were, sure let both sides play other than some obvious calls, and the 3 thousand false starts by both lines...

    We should be able to get back to the run in the next few weeks.

    Those calling for Coach Helton's head for going for it on 4th were the same calling for it when he was kicking. Make your fucking weak ass minds up. We got a W and that's all that matters. Fuck style points. They're nice and all but in the end W's are all that matters. I welcomrle any responses. Cheers.

    When I see Jalen Green in at receiver I get the same feeling I get when I see Pedro Baez coming into pitch when the Dodgers have a one run lead. There has got to be someone better. He had been singularly responsible for two of Darnold's interceptions this year.

    Unless I'm at a gamewatch party, I record the game and watch it later. USC has given me too many palpatations to watch live. And following this thread live is enough to make one suicidal. I find it much more bearable to go back after I know the result. Whew.

    Great to pull that game out.
    Saw the backup OLB's and um Murphy had a good play.
    Would still like to see Cook. Also it would be nice to have
    a tall WR play like Grimes. See what a tall talent can do.
    Rector played very well. Burnett is a stud. Blew a block or
    two. But is that one reliable talent. Vaughns had a chance
    to be a hero, didn't happen but needs to play more.

    USC won tonight despite incompetent coaching. When playing a school like Texas, you stick with the fundamentals: 4th and 1, you kick; 4th and goal, you kick.

    Please fire the idiot coach!

    We got 7 lives left as far as this season is concerned. These games are killing me slowly. As long as we keep winning I won't complain though. I'm just afraid we won't keep getting away with the little mistakes like dropped balls, blown coverage, and lethargic starts. We're fortunate Texas made more silly mistakes than we did.

    And agreed, those announcers were kissing some Longhorn ass from start to finish including the constant "alright, alright, alright." Screw them, screw Macconaughey, and screw Vince young. Thanks for visiting, enjoy your drive home in your Chrysler. I hope that one hurt, but we still owe you a few more before we'll be even.

    I truly appreciate the win but know that the Trojans were truly fortunate to get this one. The rest of the country will too. I hope this is the one that gets us around the corner and back to dominance. The receivers have to get better. They've had a season's worth of drops in 3 games. Don't know which offensive line is the real one. Last week they looked awesome. This game pathetic. This is college football. Really hard to call them.
