    Re: U$c freshman backup guarantees victory over mitre dumb

    I always love the guarantee statements. If the kid goes out and lights them up he's a freakin' hero and folk legend. If not, then he's trashed in the media for a week. Heck, might as well.

    is saying "we're going to win" really guaranteeing a victory?

    I think something more along the lines of 'I'm gonna go out there and do everything I can to lead us to a victory' is better than what he said.

    I agree. This is another example of the media trying to pick a fight. Another reason to hate the media.

    you're probably right, but a 19 year old saying "we're going to win" is a bit different from saying "i guarantee a victory."

    supposedly a j told his dad "daddy, we will not lose this game" before he left for the lsu game. i don't think he was guaranteeing a win so much as he was expressing his confidence in himself and his team.

    and on another note, as a father, i think it's heartwarming to hear a 6'4" 220 lb athlete still calling his father "daddy." i love it.

    Re: USC freshman backup guarantees victory over Notre Dame

    I think Notre Dame has to score at least 30 to win, and even that might not be enough. There's absolutely no way their corners can cover USC's receivers even with a back up QB for USC.
    Call me crazy but I still think USC runs away with this game.
    Before you jump me though, know this......I sincerely HOPE Notre Dame wins. I'd LOVE to play them in the BCS if we win out.
    I just don't think it will happen.

    What an awful choice pull for USC or ND?

    Mentioned this in another thread, but does everyone fully believe that Barkley isn't going to start just because Kiffin said he was injured (yes I know he left the game injured) the week before playing #1? I didn't see anywhere in that article where the kid said he would lead them to victory, just that USC would win. I just have trust issues with kiffikens.

    If he told me it was raining I'd have to look outside myself.

    That said, I saw film of Barkley leaving the stadium trying to hide his arm in a sling under his clothing, so do believe he's hurt and out.

    Totally agree. We all knew ksu would lose, although I thought it would be to texas and not Baylor. I was counting on the USC beatdown of nd to be our path to the BCSNCG. Happy that Stanford stepped up, though. I still think BAMA-oregon for the championship game.
