No one ever counts USC's wins against any team, much less big ten teams as quality wins after the fact. But before they the Ohio State's Auburn's, Penn State's, Arkansas's, Virginia Tech's, Nebraska's, Notre Dame's and who ever else they beat in non league games as big games, then after they get blownout by USC, those wins suddenly become a non quality wins. Just like next year's game at Ohio State, it will be so blown out of proportion as the game of the year, but when all is said and done, it will be another USC blow out, and Ohio State will be seen as having a down year.

I wouldn't count either of their wins vs Big-10 as quality wins. Sorry.

I think USC could play with any team in the country but I don't know if they're the best. They certainly have the most impressive athletes. One thing that impressed me about USC is that they would be favored against any team in the country.

Their main problem is that they have a killer instinct when it comes to the big games, but when it comes to the unimportant games, they're too busy banging B-List celebrities to mentally show up and they end up losing one to Stanford or Oregon State.

Title game should have been Florida and USC.

We need a 4 team playoff badly.

Some want 8 teams, no way.

Leave it to the top 4 to play each other and the survivor wins it all.

Do not know how to match the 4 up but I am sure someone will.

Maybe 1 v 4 and 2 v 3 or something

Winners play for the title.

Well if it was just a 4 team playoff then it would have been OU, Bama, Florida and Texas. USC ranked 5th in the BCS would have even been in it.

Utah belongs at #2, not SC.

Utah did something that SC couldn't; beat the Beavers.

Well... USC is certainly a good team with some amazing talent. And if they could go a season without getting upset by the Stanford Cardinal or the Bruins or the Beavers, then it's BCS Championship time, right?

Either way, it's the Greater LA Metro's pro team, right?
