There are somewhat "tests" out there that USC could blow easily..Oregon is suppose to be a big game, but I don't expect them to lose because of their offense...UCLA/Notre Dame/Cal could all give them troubles...but nobody that great that could really beat them... I'm not going to root against USC, so I'm saying they're gonna go undefeated...

Not exactly, they aren't a complete team, they have a dominat offense but a very soft D...The real question is who can outscore them?....and here I go hating on USC again...LOL...But sorry Trojan fans, you only won ONE National Championship, thats when you played in the National Title game against Oklahoma, you didn't play in the Sugar Bowl 2 years ago...

I am not a USC fan either, but it looks like they are passing their first test against Oregon pretty handily.

Yeah, I'm just going to stop doubting them and saying they're going to go undefeated...the Trojans are like the Patriots, they just keep winning, and you can't talk bad about them until they actually lose a game and show signs of being human..

Exactly. They are kind of like those Miami teams a few years back that ran off like 20+ in a row, but USC is better. I was thinking today as I was watching the CU/UM game that I would just about take any of the players on UM or USC on the Broncos. Both schools just produce talent like no other.

They defintely do have games that they could easily blow..even next week at Arizona State....but Notre Dame, Cal, and UCLA usually gives them fits...but like I said, they'll go undefeated...

Agreed, they seem to be the most complete team...Offense, Defense, Special Teams...all phases are great...SC's got a great Offense and that's about it, with VTech's team and their schedule, I'd say they could take it all...

Sorry Horn fans, but I don't see Texas going undefeated...too many teams in the Big XII that will give them fits, Tech, Oklahoma, A&M, and hell if Colorado can get an offense, they can give Texas some troubles too...

I think the main reason ND has a chance is that the game is in South Bend, but they gotta get by Purdue first.

Nobody will beat USC in the Pac Ten this year. The Pac 10 is down again, and only Arizona State and California could stand a fighting chance, and neither has a defense to slow down Leinart and the machine. No way is this not the weakest of the major conferences, but one that just so happens to have the best team. If you want to boost the conference, move some of USC's reserves to other schools and you may see more competition. Until then, Pac ten Kool Aid drinkers only have one golden calf.

The Big XII is also weak, which is why Texas will go undefeated. No team can currently match athlete for athlete with Mack Brown's crew, and if you still want to call them soft, go back and watch the Ohio State game. This defense has some teeth, and the offense is loaded with unpolished playmakers. If USC wasn't around, Texas and Virginia Tech would make for great debate. As it stands, it is the Trojans and everybody else.

Only conferences that can brag are the SEC and ACC, the two top conferences that will best each other up. VT will have a tough time leaving the conference unbeaten, because the offense is not elite caliber, especially at receiver, and may lock itself in one too many defensive struggles. They also have th dreaded conference chamionship game. The SEC has no title contender, but the deepest group of teams that could wallop your conference's above average teams, unless your conference is the ACC. The Big Ten deserves consideration, but each team seems to have one major flaw, which will make for a jumbled Big Ten championship picture of teams good enough for the top 25, but not for the top ten.

USC does it again. They were down 21-3 at the half at Arizona State and pulls out the win 38-28.

Their running attack looked unstoppable

L White 19 carries 197 yards, ave 10.4 , 2 TD

The ASU D was actully bad, they ranked 92 in the country coming into this game. If it wasnt for keller having the worst game of his career, throwing into coverage and throwing right to USC DB's ASU wins this game, by 2 TD's.

Yeah I listened to it on KOA...sounds like they did great...although the offense still struggled..their first TD was the first play from scrimmage with Charles running it.. but we really should of blown them out even more...Our D is looking incredible, we are hands down the best team in the North...

But sorry Trojan fans, you only won ONE National Championship, thats when you played in the National Title game against Oklahoma, you didn't play in the Sugar Bowl 2 years ago...

According to anyone who follows college football closely, USC split the national title two years ago. The AP title that they won is considered having "won" a national title - they got the trophy, wore the rings, met the president, etc. There have been many split national titles over the years and in each and every case both teams can legitimately say they were national champions. So, as much as you may not want to admit it, USC was one of two national champions the year before last. The system may not be the best (or even good) but it's been that way for about 100 years and isn't likely to change any time soon.

The main point for the BCS was to NOT have a split national champion...the BCS was suppose to pick 2 teams, and those 2 teams would compete for that national title...that year it was LSU and Oklahoma...since USC was playing Michigan that year, do you think beating Michigan was a worthy championship team? It's like saying Auburn should of split the title last year because they beat Virigina Tech and went un-defeated....

I will never put myself into a position to defend an assinine system like the BCS but your use of the word "suppose" shows that it obviously didn't do what it was intended for.

As for beating Michigan, it doesn't matter what I think. SC was #1 in the only two polls that matter (and the only two that have mattered for at least the last 60 years) going into the bowl games and was #1 in one of them after. Therefore, by any national championship definition that has ever been used in college football, they won a national title (along with LSU). As I mentioned in my previous post, most of the college football world recognizes this, as evidenced by their trip to the White House, their rings, their AP national championship trophy, their banner, etc.

As for Auburn, there are similarities with SC from the previous year but, unfortunately for the Tigers, there was one all-encompasing, major difference - the voters in the 2 polls did not recognize them.

Again, the system is brutal and has been for 100 years, but it is the system that is in place and under that system, USC has won 2 consecutive national titles.

Yes, I understand your reasoning, but what I don't understand is that the BCS did its calculations with strength of schedules, quality wins, AP poles, etc..and it determined only 2 teams to play for the National Title..that year it was Lousiana State and Oklahoma...NOT USC...

but honestly, don't mind me, I'm a biased towards not having a split champion... Colorado earned a 10-9 victory over Notre Dame, the #1's and #2's of the Top 25..and somehow Georgia Tech came in and split the national title :confused: ...I'm just a little bitter...

Totally agree! I for one don't want a long playoff either because it diminishes the urgency of the regular season. I like the fact that one loss severely hurts you and 2 losses eliminate you. It makes every week mean something in college football.

As a Cal student. I'd say Cal.

Ayoob reminds me of Plummer in his early days. Runs around, makes impossible plays then whiffs on a 4 yarder. We have incredible depth @ HB (sound familiar?) and our D is stepping up.

Cal's weak link is ST.. Our kicker is... well let's just say, an Eagle's lineman might be a better kicker than our boy.

I would agree that V-tech has a good chance, although I don't know if they will score enough. I mean no matter how good their defense is they're not holding SC to under 24 points or so. Do they have the offense to score in the upper 20's?

As for me, being he loyal Trojan alum/fan/season ticket holder I am, the game on the schedule that really concerns me is a week from Saturday at Notre Dame. I think they may play the kind of game that can beat SC, especially at home. Cal is also a concern because they dominated the Trojans at the Coliseum last year (they should have won), but I'm not overly worried because it appears Cal, while very good, is not as good as last year's team.

CB,
I do think that will be the match up everyone will want to see. I think the injuries at DB would hurt SC against the speed that VT has with their WR's. As far as their D and the 24 points that may be a challenge but they have looked pretty good so far.

I am also a loyal SC fan and try to go to as many games as I can. This year I didn't get as many tickets because of the soft schedule and the games are usually exciting for the first 15 minutes. This year the only game I am willing to sit through is the UCLA game.

It does kind of stink that all tough games (or at least those we thought would be tough before the season) are on the road - Oregon, Cal, ASU, and Notre Dame. I guess the only close one at home should be UCLA unless Fresno St. comes in and makes a showing.

So ASU is better than GT? If so maybe you should be taking care of the rankings? Look at the SC schedule. It is soo sad for a #1 team to have. Atleast ND and UCLA are not as bad as last year.

Well...since ASU and GT both have two losses, and ASU's was to two good/great teams, I think you could make the argument that ASU is as good or better than GT. It's amazing to me that people throughout the country run down the Pac-10 every year then come bowl time the Pac-10 usually more than holds its own against teams from the "stronger" conferences. Look, no one is saying the Pac-10 is as good as the SEC, but it's not like they're the Mountain West conference either. To say that USC "skates" to a championship sounds like a lot of disrespectful sour grapes to me. :coffee:

I think the only way for 1 injury to work is that Bush would have to go down or Lienhert, but i think they might be able to do it with a backup QB if it all comes down to it.

Yeah that backup QB is pretty good...The biggest weakness I see in USC is their defense..Arizona was able to march it up and down against them..ARIZONA!... Obviously, nobody is going to be able to stop that offense, so it comes down to who will outscore them....UCLA/Cal/Notre Dame can all do it, but the key in those teams it that will they be able to stop USC enough times to win?

Well since that didn't happen, the only other team capable of beating SC is Cal and I don't think they'll beat them either.

What was that for? I love it that the whole country is getting a kick out of OU's struggles. It's ok though...we'll be back.

Don't say the whole country - we Trojan faithful know what it's like to be down for awhile so I remain silent when other great programs struggle (except for Notre Dame - gotta have some fun with the rival)

Can anyone tell me the last time USC lost?

The Trojans will enter Memorial Stadium, the last place they lost a game since I can't even remember. And they will lose.

Even though Cal's lost twice, they'll still be fired up for USC. Everyone is. Especially after last year.

If Cal doesn't beat them, I don't think UCLA will. They're not that great, they got lucky against Cal.

GO BEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I agree - Cal is the one game left on the schedule that really concerns me. In addition to being the last place they lost, Cal also pushed SC all over the field last year at the Coliseum and probably deserved to win. The rest of the games SC should win unless they fall asleep, including UCLA (mainly because it's at home - even before the current winning streak, SC rarely loses at home)

That's the scary thing...IF USC gets there, they usually get 100% prepared for those teams and play flawless (ala Oklahoma)..that game was amazing...They were throwing it to TE's, WR's, RB's and all of them made a huge catch and huge play...really unstoppable, against a very good OU D as well...the better thing to hope for is a USC regular season loss..but I'm afraid that's not going to happen...

I can tell you who is going to beat USC. It's UCLA. They played them tough last year and had the ball with a chance to win inside SC's 30 yard line. And as good as SC's offense is they don't want to get in a shoot out with UCLA. I know about Reggie Bush and all that but, You can't stop Bush he's going to get his. You put pressure on Leinhardt and knock him around and he really is average. Bush dominated the game last year and UCLA still came within 5 points. All I know is There's no one in the country that can contain Marcedes Lewis. And you still got to account for Maurice Drew who Leads the NCAA in scoring. So if SC wants to keep spotting teams points and come back and win then do it to UCLA at your own peril.

Interesting...is that game @USC or @UCLA? All you have to do is outscore USC, its obvious that their Defense isn't as good as it was last year, hell, even Arizona marched up and down against them (and no matter what any of you say, Arizona is NOT a good team)...but Cal can outscore them as well...

It really doesn't matter both schools are in L.A. and so whether its at the Rose Bowl or in Coleseum it will be packed fairly evenly unless one School has a greater following than the other. Also outscore USC sounds simple but I don't think they want to get into a shootout. The best way is to keep the SC defense on the field as long as possible. Yes SC defense has had its share of problems because personell loses but Carroll has a great mind for defensive coordination he'll find away.
