    Interesting notion, that being the Trojans might manage a bowl game against an SEC team. I'm afraid that Pete had better just focus on Arizona State next weekend. This defense is in complete disarray. Watching tonight, it was difficult to even believe this was a Pete Carroll coached team I was watching.

    However, the future is bright and I have said all along that next years team will be the one that contends for a championship. The trick now is for Carroll and the staff to develop something to take into next season. What I fear is that if something doesn't get done quick, the Trojans will carry some bad habits into next season.

    Oh well, I guess you can't win em all eh?

    Awesome, awesome, awesome game by the Oregon Ducks. For the first time in 8 years the Trojans were beaten, nay, blown out on national t.v. The Ducks proved that they are among the elite teams in the country. They deserve a shot at the national title. The Oregon offense made the Trojan defense look like amateurs. The Oregon defense was extremely fast and the Oregon Duck coaching staff flat out executed a better plan - on both sides of the ball.

    If it helps: "I was wrong." I was very, very, wrong about this USC defense. I thought that losing 7-8 players to the NFL would not be an issue. Oregon proved that it was a big, big, issue. The USC linebacking corp was exposed as green and not ready for prime time. Crossing route after crossing route was completed. USC's lax approach to spread receivers in the slot - no linebacker even being walked out leaving only a safety 12-15 yards off to account - dumb, dumb move by Pete Carroll and one properly exploited by a very, very good Duck offense. Now comes the challenging part: representing the Pac-10 conference.

    Go forth Ducks and prove to the world that the Pac-10 isn't USC and the little nine. Take the country by storm. Win out and and do so impressively. You can do it. Just like tonight. Bring home the title. Well done. Go Ducks!

    P.S. We'll get you next year!!

    Thanks for your recent post to me involving the SEC's rather dubious road and OOC schedule. Of course, the SEC's honks will tell you that the SEC is so tough that playing their conference games more than makes up for their lack of a difficult schedule. However, I have watched a lot of SEC this year and I don't buy it. The SEC, by and large, doesn't impress me like they have the past couple of years. Once you get past Florida, the SEC looks pretty ordinary to me. Even Florida doesn't look nearly as tough without Harvin and the guy who now plays for Denver.

    Brother, you should publish that information and post it on the SEC page. I would relish your ruffling those feathers!

    2 weeks before the big game. How about some feedback.

    I concur. Well done, still some tough games ahead.

    Road trips to ND and Oregon will still be challenging. Home games vs Oregon st, Stanford, and UCLA are also potential trap games.

    Having said all that there is not a team on the schedule who the Trojans shouldn't beat if they play up to their standards.

    The key will be to maintain the same kind of enthusiasm showed in this weekend's game.

    Thanks for the info my friend. I was aware that the Trojans played a difficult schedule but I didn't know how that compared with others. I will certainly use that info at some point.

    Hopefully tomorrows game will go the way we want it to and I can use it in a positive context. It should be interesting.

    Hello my brutha! Yes, the Trojans went into the Horseshoe and got it done. It wasn't easy but I think we will all look back and mark this game as the beginning of the Matt Barkley legend...
