Nice misleading headline. SI trying to stir up some isht.
Frankly I wouldn't want a QB playing for us that didn't feel like he was going to win every time he took the field. But I don't see a guarantee anywhere.
Here's the article so you don't give the writer any clicks (unless you want to bash them).
"USC has a chance to ruin top-ranked Notre Dame’s national championship hopes with a victory over the Irish at home on Saturday.
With USC’s starter Matt Barkley out with a shoulder injury, his backup Max Wittek took it upon himself to make a bold prediction of Saturday’s game. According to CollegeFootballTalk, Wittek went on ESPN Radio on Tuesday and said that the Trojans would beat the Irish.
“We haven’t got the full game plan yet, but from what I can tell, we’re going to play our offense, whatever coach (Lane) Kiffin feels comfortable giving me. If he wants to air it out, let’s air it out,” Wittek said. “If he wants to pound it on the ground, let’s do that. Like I said, I’m going to go out there, I’m going to play within myself, within the system, and we’re going to win this ballgame.”
Wittek, a redshirt freshman, has seen limited action this season for the 7-4 Trojans. Wittek has completed eight of nine passes this season for 95 yards, including all three of his attempts for 40 yards during the fourth quarter of Saturday’s loss to UCLA."

And 99% of his quotes have been very complimentary of Notre Dame but this is the only quote that will go on Brian Kelly's bulletin board
"Like I said, I’m going to go out there, I’m going to play within myself, within the system, and we’re going to win this ballgame.”
I would have much preferred if Max admitted to being scared shitless, which will cause him to throw at least 4 INT's that will lead to USC losing the game.
BTW,can anyone show me where Max made any such guarantee? Last time I checked, making a statement of belief is anything but a guarantee.

Jesus Mary and Joseph...what is happening to journalism?...there is no integrity anymore...only sensationalism...it really makes me respect guys like Feldman and Miller so much more!
"It's what a brother would do for another brother"
So you like Jewish journalists
I don't care what nationality a journalist is as long as they're honest and forthright....
It's a joke. I don't know why some uptight person downvoted me. Feldman and Miller are traditional Jewish names.
It wasn't me...I didn't know Miller was a traditional Jewish name...who knew?
Edit: I up voted you to even it out

USC has not been in a position with no where to go but up since 1901, which is the last time we had a winless season (we played 1 game). I mean season, we're 7-4. Very disappointing, given what we were capable of but come on.

I'm ok with that misleading headling, hopefully it will wake up the trojan team.
Agreed. If Notre Dame needs more "motivation" (in this fashion) than going undefeated against their rival who they are like 1-9 against in the last 10 years, then they're actually worse than people even think.
If anything, I think USC is the one that needs more motivation than anything else. Hopefully the team hearing that from the freshman QB making his first start against the #1 ranked team in the country will make them believe.
Much ado about nothing. What was Wittek supposed to do, say that his team had no chance like Jesse Palmer did?
Do I have another admirer or are my down vote stalkers back?
Not me voting......but Judaism is a religon not a nationality.....
If Notre Lame needs bulletin board material to get up for this game, then they have already lost.
Wittek will tear this defense apart, not only with his arm, but with his legs too. 15-25 220 yds, 45yds rushing and 3 total td's (1 int).
Trojans win 27-17
"there is the SEC, and then there is USC." - Marcus Allen, 11-26-11
I've read that damn thing 6 times and I still can't find the word "guarantee" come from Max.

I always thought it was both....but I could be wrong?
"Genetic studies indicate various lineages found in modern Jewish populations; however, most of these populations share a lineage in common, traceable to an ancient population that underwent geographic branching and subsequent independent evolutions. While DNA tests have demonstrated both inter-marriage and conversion to Judaism in all of the various Jewish ethnic divisions over the last 3,000 years, it was substantially less than in other populations. The findings lend support to traditional Jewish accounts accrediting their founding to exiled Israelite populations, and counters theories that many or most of the world's Jewish populations were founded entirely by local populations that adopted the Jewish religion, devoid of any actual Israelite genetic input.
The J2 DNA Kohanim migration graphic, based on Joseph Felsenstein software results
DNA analysis further determined that modern Jews of the priesthood tribe—"Kohanim"—share an ancestor dating back about 3,000 years. This result is consistent for all Jewish populations around the world. The researchers estimated that the most recent common ancestor of modern Kohanim lived between 1000 BCE (roughly the time of the Biblical Exodus) and 586 BCE, when the Babylonians destroyed the First Temple. They found similar results analyzing DNA from Ashkenazi and Sephardi Jews. The scientists estimated the date of the original priest based on genetic mutations, which indicated that the priest lived roughly 106 generations ago, between 2,650 and 3,180 years ago depending whether one counts a generation as 25 or 30 years. These Jews belong to the haplotypes J1e and J2a. However, more recent research has shown that many ethnic groups in the Middle East and Mediterranean area also share this genetic profile.
Although individual and groups of converts to Judaism have historically been absorbed into contemporary Jewish populations, it is unlikely that they formed a large percentage of the ancestors of modern Jewish groups, and much less that they represented their genesis as Jewish communities."

I'll apparently have to sharpen up on my sarcasm a bit.
