USC felt 'disrespected' by UCLA's timeout call

The only play that mattered in Saturday night's USC-UCLA game continued to be the main talking point Sunday with Trojan players less diplomatic than coach Pete Carroll about its significance. Read more

I checked, and for UCLA it does talk about only using test scores from the same sitting and not combining scores from multiple sittings.

Aww heck, whose side you on...what'd you go an get all impatrial in your time off?
Thanks for the research, I'll have my wife update her seniors. Of course that still doesn't prove (yet) that a) USC does cherry pick b)and uses that to inflate SAT's scores c) which may not affect rankings anyway to the extent alleged - after all...maybe, just maybe, ALL the scores get better on the 2nd and 3rd test....

Well, USC does select the best sub-scores from the SATs. I've always been impartial like that. I know that USC isn't the perfect university, but it was the perfect university for me. As far as getting better on the 2nd and 3rd test, I remember I took the SAT twice and on the 2nd test my math score went up while my verbal went down slightly. Obviously neither USC nor UCLA was too concerned with that as I was admitted to both, reinforcing the notion that test scores are merely just a part of what they consider when evaluating applications and thus we shouldn't read too much into average test scores.

Hmm, I said this on Dec 1. I doubt Army will win, but if they do, it keeps UCLA out of a bowl.

To root for the Pac-10 or not???

Yes. Root for the Pac-10. But that doesn't mean you have to root for (or against) UCLA - for the sake of the Pac-10, they should stay home.

Root for a team to win or lose because of how it affects UCLA? Nope. That's a fool's errand, although I have some compassion for those who have been brought up as UCLA fans and led to believe that their second favorite team should be the one playing USC. Not much compassion, but a little.

I'm happy for what Navy has done of late...but if I was more then a bit ambivalent when they played ND, but I knew that another win in South Bend would hasten a regime change. Maybe with Weis gone, I'll go back to being a Fighting Irish fan 51 weeks out of the year.

Army need to bootstrap its play as well, and that would be good to see, but my choice is not based on whether its important to maybe keep UCLA out of a bowl game.

Frankly, I think ND is doing the right thing in taking a pass. UCLA can justify an extra round of practice, but they risk ending up under .500, which won't help their efforts to woo recruits.

Now, despite the latest hitters piling on our frustration with a less then stellar season, 8-4 is pretty good, and the chance to win a 9th is still better then what we were quite happy with in the 80's and 90's.
