Excuses, excuses. Chuck it up SUC fans. Carroll is a bad coach. You could have had 6 BCS titles by now if Carroll had coached his players better. But as it is, SUC will always be remembered as the school that almost made it.

O.K. Bad Boy, whatever you say. Tell me this, how did the gutless little Bruins do this year? Every time you open your mouth in here you are showing everyone how stupid you really are, just like every other FUCLA fan. By the way, I hear that they are having a cleanup today at the Rose Bowl, and they are even giving free brooms and dust pans. Get over there quick so you and the rest of the FUCLA jerk off fans can clean up after another SC beatdown.

Coach Carroll, thanks for a great season.

I know there are schools (some within 10 miles) who would love a 12-1 season once in a decade.

Hey badboy (what a fay moniker by the way...bite pillows much?)

USC is the school that has "made it" 11 times and has been at the elite level throughout most of its history.

Tell me fayboy, what does it feel to be the school that is known as irrelevant?

For as much as Carroll is lobbying for the Trojans to get a share of the National Championship, he could easily be lobbying the same for Utah. Carroll said he believes no team can beat his, but alas, Oregon State did. And if memory serves correct, it's the same Oregon State team that Utah beat during the regular season. That's the Undefeated Utah Utes now. And for all the condom, I mean, trojan fans now proclaiming the greatness of the Pac 10 who went undefeated in bowl games to validate usc's position , Utah is from the Mountain West, the same conference who dominated Pac 10 in regular season. I guess when Utah played Oregon State, they didn't let all the "hype" affect their play on the field. Hmmm....Carroll may want to rethink his stance and lobby for his share of the National Championship to go to Utah. It's the right thing to do. UTES ON!

And you can only dream of having a coach at whatever school you support who wins almost 90% of the games played. When was the last time your school had only one loss in a season? Can't count that far back? I thought so.

"Utah is from the Mountain West, the same conference who dominated Pac 10 in regular season."

BYU is also from the the Mountain West and lost to Arizona, which is a middle of the road Pac-10 team, in the Vegas Bowl. BYU was supposedly a Mountain West elite. The week the MW beat Pac-10 teams in the regular season, they beat all the lower end teams, the exception being Oregon St which had a let down (albeit losing in the final seconds) a week after beating #1. It frequently happens to teams that beat #1. Wish we could have seen Utah against a healthy Alabama offensive line, one that wasn't missing three of five starters.

Typical rhetoric from pUSC fans. EXCUSES, EXCUSES, EXCUSES...to justify when they lose and justify why they are better! Take cue from Utah, Win and Shut up!!! 13-0!! UTES ON!!!!

Rob you need some help man. You suffer from OCD when it comes to USC football. I really can't understand why you and Manhattan Beach Dude can't seem to leave the USC stories alone in fact you consistently comment more than anyone else. Basketball season has started already, why don't you go focus on your team? You two are the biggest trolls I have seen.

Petey no one gives a sh*t what you say. You must be a complete moron if you think Utah would be the Trojans on a neutral field five times out of ten games.

Hey FUCLA Rob, how come you and Manhattan Beach Dude are not at the Rose Bowl on cleanup duty? If you are on the way, please pick up Miguelito and 100 NCAA Titles. I'm sure you know where they live. By the way, why isn't Slick Rick interviewing for a new DC, since the all-mighty DeWayne Walker skipped town? Hope you had a Merry Christmas and I hope you got a LCD T.V. for Christmas so you could stay in your mom's basement and watch SC beatdown another opponent on FUCLA's "home field."

WOW!!! Must have hit a nerve! LMA0!! Never said anything about Utah beating usc 5 out of 10. Although Oregon State may have something to say about that! Just stated the facts of this season. 13-0 > 12-1 UTES ON!!!!

I never expected an Utah fan to be talking crap on a USC story. This is somewhat funny actually.

Hey genius. You clearly weren't listening to Carroll. He used the words "right now" as in no team can currently beat the Trojans. Teams improve over time. The BCS only looks at seasons cumulatively. This system is very flawed. Utah may be the best team in the nation, SC maybe...but we will never know. Continue to embrace the computer and a fuzzy championship.

Hey jack why don't you go into your momma's basement andjackoff to pete carroll's poster you have up on the ceiling? You bandwagon troll.

How does it feel to cheer for a team that is expected by you moronic condom fans to win titles, yet you will be lucky to win 4 games next year after your team loses 10 starters on defense and 7 on offense?

You are the most arrogant, pompous, disilusional fans in the country that are costantly crying like lttle byatches because you team is coached by a coach that chokes against teams featuring 5'3" runningbacks, and you pathetic "all-american can't even tackle him. Hahah national championship? Ha! Your asse! Dream on, loser.

Convenient for Carroll to say "nobody could beat us right now" when he doesn't have to play in the NC game. How dare he just blow off teams like Florida, Oklahoma, and Texas. I'm getting a bit tired of USC choking every year, going to the Rose Bowl, and then calling themselves #1 from their sofa while they watch the NC game. It shows no class.

He was asked a question and he answered it. Do you think Pete Carroll should have responded by lying and saying he believes the team he coaches could not beat Florida or Oklahoma? Pete Carrol has an 85% winning history...which dwarfs either coach in the NC game next week.

He has a right to be honest when asked if his team can beat both teams in the NC game.
