Great win...even though the refs and the announcers sure did want ND to win, they still couldn't get it done.
Barkley for President

Now that I'm done spewing my hatred of ND, I can say that Golden Tate is a stud. Kid made some insanely sweet catches.
I will give Jimmy Clausen no props, because I hate him.
On another note - what's with ND's white boys growing out their hair? They all trying to be Jeff Samardzija?
Seemingly the same can be said for some piss poor calls in the first half by those Pac-10 refs.
You can give Jimmy no props but if he had the same kind of time in the pocket as Barkley did he would have done a much better job dissecting the USC secondary. He also was playing with turf toe on 2 of his toes so he was a lot less mobile.
Do you honestly think Barkley would have played as well with ND's OL, minus his #1 WR and with the same injury ? Clausen is the better QB right now (Barkley could be better in the future but that remains to be seen and he will never play under the same conditions Clausen has had to endure and overcome) and is forced to have to do more to make up for the Defense who still are not very good and give up too many big plays.
Also this game would have been much different with Floyd out there and no USC fan can deny that unless they are in denial of Floyd's talent and ability.
You are just full of excuses about this loss, aren't you.
No we lost because we lost. Clausen made a piss poor throw on the last play and we could not cover the TE for s**t all day long. USC was the better football team today.
But people do not want to concede to Clausen's talent especially when comparing him to the Church going golden boy Barkley. Barkley is a very good young QB prospect and may very well be a future #1 overall pick, he is also lucky to play for a school that surrounds him with such talent year after year which should definitely help him secure a Heisman and maybe even a NC. Nipplehead wants to give him no props because he hates him
....I'm sorry love or hate a player you can't deny him his deserved props if he is actually talented (I may hate Kobe Bryant but there is no denying how f**king good he is).
Just like how everyone wants to talk about the refs in this game if we only talk about how they called the game in the 2nd half but how quickly they forgot about the 1st half.
Bottom line we lost, but the season is not over and we still have to go out and try to win each week one game at a time.
Now that we are done with that, wanna talk about the USC loss to Washington ? Bring on the Aaron Corp excuses now........
Because that is exactly what the USC faithful did, they threw Corp under the bus (after many thought he would be the starter this year) but I guess it's not ok for ND fans to mention how this game would have been much different with Floyd or if we had as much talent as USC has in the trenches where football games are won. ND can still recruit but being a catholic school means we can't pay prospects to come to our school like they do in So Cal.
What about the loss to Oregon State or the one to Stanford the year prior ? USC are one of the most overrated schools in the country and do not know what a truly tough schedule is. I'd love to see them play just one year in the SEC or Big 12 where conference games are MUCH tougher and the teams are much more balanced talent wise than they are in the Pac-10 because the rest of the schools don;t have the deep pockets that USC does.
