Typical USC...must have read too many newspapers declaring them a walkover for the PAC 10. Way to have the boys ready to play, Petey. Nice game plan.

This just shows everyone how challenging Pac-10 play is for any team. I am no USC fan, but I still think they can beat ANY team in the nation. The coaching staff at OSU just seem to have Pete Caroll's number.

Thought that we were having another earthquake on Thursday night. Turns out it was just the front running USC fans jumping off the bandwagon in unison.

add up both teams' final score in the 'SC-Oregon State game, and it's still greater than the combined SAT scores of the USC football team

OSU just outplayed USC, that is the bottom line. Maybe they did go into the game with the "bighead" but they got there butts kicked. Alot of the players looked like they were in shock at what was happening.

Did you see Carroll pacing up and down the sideline? It looked like he couldn't decide whether to deficate or set his watch.

I guess one can say another one bites the dust. Florida just got upset. So it comes down to parity in college football.

Teams need some luck these days to go undefeated for the season.

USC is still a top quality football program.
Now that they have lost, it will be interesting to see how they come back.

Ain't no big thing. That podunk little school is not going to stop USC from getting to the big game. Lose early enough in the BCS system, and you have lots of time to make up for that fluke we saw on Thursday night.

I think Oregon State's scheme on both sides of the ball simply matches up well with USC. This is probably due to the Mike Riley factor and his past experience at USC.

Pete cannot wait to watch the Leland Stanford Marching Band perform again.

S.U.C just proved you wrong. They can't even beat ANY team in the PAC 10.....same as last year. With the talent that they have it should be true. So whats the problem??
