It is unbelievable..I love it, hubby is a UCLA fan..
I'm guessing that even in a hostile environment USC ekes out a victory. It won't (hopefully) be a blowout like last year (THAT was more embarrassing than the Florida debacle IMHO), but neither Ohio State nor USC are playing with stacked squads like last year. The Buckeyes are a little too inexperienced for this caliber of competition (most of the starters are going to be either freshman or sophomores, with only a couple of juniors and seniors), and USC has a lot of rebuilding to do on defense, in addition to getting a quarterback fully acclimated into Pete's system (Mustain is my guess, but how long was he warming the bench during Sanchez' tenure outside a few snaps?).

I will say this though: I hated USC after four years of college in Orange County (ground zero for fair weather fandom, especially for the Trojans, Lakers and Chargers) but after getting to see last year's game at the Coliseum and tailgating with 'SC fans while decked out in full Buckeye regalia, I have a newfound respect for the fans and the pandemonium surrounding the Coliseum on Game Day. I can only hope (and expect) that the fine citizens of Columbus show the same class toward visiting Trojans on September 12.

It should be one helluva game this time around. Helps that we don't have Todd "I don't like when Ohio State has possession of the football" Boeckman making the calls.

What say we move the game to December in Columbus and see how your boys handle the biting cold, howling winds and thick snowfall?

Seems like a USC-UCLA couple is a little more tolerable than a Buckeyes-scUM relationship. Then again, the OSU-scUM rivalry stems from a war 150 years ago (over Toledo, for chrissake)

Heard about Rush Limbaugh's offer to buy the Rams to keep them in St. Louis and prevent those "un-American liberals" (his words, not mine) in L.A. from having a football team?

Maybe Rush Limbaugh is too stupid to realize that there are many sane minded Americans (conservatives) living in the Greater Los Angeles area, even if they aren't the majority.

Or that Industry/SGV is typically one of the more conservative areas of greater Los Angeles...It is practically the beginning of the Inland Empire after all.

While I don't like Manny, I don't think he's the problem. I think that blame should go more towards his agent, Scott Boras. Bill Simmons of ESPN had an excellent article a couple months ago explaining how Boras was responsible for Manny's behavior (or at the very least encouraged him to act the way he did) in order to get traded from the Red Sox.

Limbaugh just hates California, period. He probably thinks the San Joaquin Valley is full of bleeding-heart liberals....
