    Funnier than you in 2012.

      You can thank Mr. Nixon for that.

            What happened to Kiffin and USC not discussing injuries?
            I'll believe it when I see it, but if true this is fantastic.

              OMG-everyone thinks the same thing. Would not surprise me if Kiffy is trying to pull a fast one-Loser.
              I have invested everything BUT tuition for Notre Dame. I make no apologies.

                If Barkley trots out on the field and starts warming up, Lane will get the ******* of the Decade award...

                    I'm just saying... dude broke ncaa rules by switching jerseys to fake a field goal against Colorado. After that, I can't imagine he wouldn't do anything and everything possible to beat us.

                      It's 1000% true. He was in a sling after the game. And Lane is in deep crap right now...he ain't lying to the media so blatantly about his star QB; it's a done deal.

                      Wittek will start...there's no conspiracy theory here.

                        I'm with you. Add the deflating balls situation with other shady stuff. I would not be surprised, but Kiffin would go down as the biggest cheat in college football.

                          posted this in the USC thread but its relevant here:

                          I'm not getting fired up about this. USC is 7-4, so the change might not be to our advantage?

                                    Are you honestly suggesting that a red-shirt frosh is better than Matt Barkley? Future first-round draft pick Matt Barkley? Really now...

                                          Oregon just got beat by Stanford's back-up QB.(worth noting) Let's not get to over-excited. Lee & Woods could have 300 yards receiving with Lane throwing passes to them if we are not prepared. JUST WIN

                                            Nope. I'm saying don't count your chickens before they hatch. Everyone wants to be a hero and now that red-shirt has a stage.

                                            We should destroy them.

                                              Suggesting that ANYONE on that roster other than Barkley starting isn't in our favor is Chicken Little crap. You're right- we SHOULD destroy them and this only makes it more likely.

                                                I'm sure he'll think he can be Tom Brady to Drew Bledsoe, but the first time Tuitt drops him on his punk *** will make him re-think that. Maybe if this is a Weis defense, but this is a Bob Diaco defense.

                                                  Wittek will be a good one but he is surely not better than Matt. He moved all the way out here to play at Mater Dei from Connecticut. The game plan will and should be the same. Troy nikals auctually picked off a pass at DE and ran it back for 6 against him his senior year

                                                      How many times I have said that to myself under my breath today? 1,500 give or take.

                                                      How many times will I say that throughout the week? Enough for people to start avoiding eye contact.

                                                        Can you people give it a rest with your persecution complexes? It is unbelievably obnoxious. We're #1 in all three rankings; we were unanimous in the AP. Nobody is saying anything about our schedule if we win this game. It doesn't matter if Southern Cal starts their punter at QB.

                                                          USC has loads of offensive talent that still frightens me. Algohor, Lee, and Woods are a freakishly good WR core.

                                                          I think we we should be able to run all over them though. Their defense is a dumpster fire right now.

                                                              Their talent scares me because they could all decide to get together and play 4 good quarters of football. However I trust Diaco to draw up a winning scheme.

                                                                                                I doubt there is anyyone on our roster that can cover Woods/Lee (of course the same could be said for the rest of the country) but if we just play our scheme, we can beat them with or without Barkley.

                                                                                                OU has a better offense than USC...and they only got in the endzone once. I like our chances

Diaco will, as usual, give up the underneath routes in exchange for big play prevention (and Lee will probably produce some very good YAC, just like OU's Jalen Saunders did against us). But Wittek is going to have to throw quickly and accurately to keep drives going that way, all while Shembo, Tuitt, KLM and Nix are bearing down upon him. I wouldn't be surprised to see our defense produce a TD or two as a result.

Although I am sure he was cordial I don't think he appreciated Lame's condescending phone apology either. I think we come out ready for a little retribution, I think this one is a little more personal than this team is letting on.
