nobody predicted this. what a game that was for the cardinal and gold. brad who? and let’s try to remember that about half of those passing yard were when palmer was out of the game already. usc made it look like the notre dame game. tied at half, looking like they were in a big time battle, then all hell breaks loose, and usc is suddenly up by two touchdowns. take away some dropped passes by mike williams, the freshman phenom, early in the year, and one of those losses disappears, and a missed extra point from their terrible kicking game cost them another. this team was damn close to playing in the bcs championship game. mark my words, ohio state will get rolled tonight. not going to be close. usc would have made it a game.
