Southern California was leveled by another post-Ohio State funk, taken down by upstart Washington with a late drive that must have looked familiar to the Trojans.

Doesn't this make Buckeye Nation feel better? A team that lost every game last season-yes every game last season-defeats USC on a last second field goal.

Yes, Aaron Corp started at QB in this game and yes, USC had the lowest passing yards total for a game during the Pete Carroll era. But USC's offense against OSU was not impressive regardless of the QB. It was the Buckeye offense that could not get the job done against the Trojans. The bottom line is that USC lost against an inferior team.

I am sure that this can be brushed aside and explained as a "letdown". But it sure seems that USC in letdown mode with its second string QB should demolish a team that was winless the year before. Maybe it has something to do with coaching?

Regardless, it seems to show just how inept OSU is against upper tier competition, even when that competition is not at its best.

No, it does not make me feel good at all. Ohio State, for all its improvements over the last two weeks, is a loser to a loser to a supreme loser. That's loser three times over. The pollsters seem to have taken this into account, as the Buckeyes, in spite of how far the Trojans have fallen, are still looking up to them.

I have a question I hope everyone will consider. Which is worse? Losing to 5 top 5 teams over the last 5 years (and the sixth team you lost to went to the Rose Bowl but they were not top 5, only top 20) and losing no other games OR....Losing at least one game (because we don't know what may happen the rest of this year) EVERY YEAR to a team that frankly, is not even very good, and some of them (Stanford and UCLA) were terrible. The fact is this. Yes, Bob Hunter would take Pete Carroll over Jim Tressel, but at the end of the day, Carroll never can manage to WIN GAMES HE IS SUPPOSED TO WIN! I am not a trojan fan, but I am guessing that the Trojan faithful are very frustrated. USC may well win another Rose Bowl and have another top 5 season, but they will have the same # of National Championships in the last 10 years as OSU (and no, the stupid Coaches Poll Championship doesn't count...that was all politics!) To add to this, I would be remiss if I did not mention how disappointed I was at how the ESPN pundits handled the USC game. Lou Holtz and especially Mark May were co-mr. congeniality to Pete and his troops while they lambast Tressel as a choker every chance they get. I'm guessing that has something to do with keeping those invitations to the post game "football" parties coming that USC is famous for...we can't seem to get those hollywood types to come to Columbus for our parties.
