If USC ever puts together a complete game, this team is going to be scary.
Let’s look at the two most probable outcomes of Saturday’s game: Either USC wins by a small margin or Colorado wins. Yes, Colorado is the leader of Pac-12 South and it does best USC in nearly every offensive and defensive statistic. But, once again, statistics are only relevant in context.
The ugly thing about football is that it’s violent.
USC football didn’t play a game last weekend, as one could deduce from the lack of activity on 28th Street Saturday.
Life is all about luck.
My favorite line is when General Manager Billy Beane, played by Brad Pitt, is flustered by his scouting department’s unwillingness to be innovative and yells: “There are rich teams and there are poor teams. Then, there’s 50 feet of crap. And then there’s us.”
In one of my first Daily Trojan columns I voiced why MLB has the unique ability to determine which 10 clubs should be playing in the postseason.
All that being said, I don’t think I’m biased when I say that Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is going to be the best quarterback in the NFL in the next five years.
The New York Yankees, who finished the season with 100 wins and the third best record in baseball, shouldn’t be put into a place where they face a must-win Wild Card Game to make it into the playoffs.
In a year where other Pac-12 playoff hopefuls such as Washington and USC have also fallen short to elite talent in nationally broadcasted games, it is an especially disappointing result for the “conference of champions.”
