    Makes my beloved Buckeyes even look worse by them losing to Oregon State.

Everyone is gunning for them and they just can't get mentally prepared for the low profile teams. The Hollywood ego will get you every time.

    The Oregon State D was just outstanding and the Rodgers bros are tremendous athletes.

    They out recruit every other team on the planet. Take a peek at their 2008 and 2009 recruiting classes. Nothing but 4 and 5 star talent. How do fit 5 years of that kind or recruiting into 22 starters. Everyone of those kids could start on any team in the nation, yet 3/4ths sit the bench at USC. A 6 running back rotation ? Not good for offensive stability.
    a lot of those beavers are california kids that could start at sc. just sayin
    but then again, i may be retarded

    It's the pleasure of favoring three different teams. There's always one to keep it interesting.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    I get the sense that your last couple of avatars have been based on comments of mine

    I heard a couple of sound bites today by Pete Carroll and I was really impressed. He gave full credit to OSU and Mike Riley. He flat stated that the better team on the field won the game. He also said that it was a coaching failure - taking full responsibility.
    However, what I don't understand, is how a team with ALL the advantages of USC - tradition, facilities, coaching staff, recruiting success, etc. can, EVERY FRIGGING YEAR, lose at least one game to someone that should be a walkover. I have to think that it is coaching - somehow they are not convincing these stars that they have to take their opponents seriously.
