For all those that think SC rolls in this game, what makes you believe the have the capability and are finally going to play a complete game, considering they have not played one yet this season?
Serious question, just wanted to see what peoples thoughts are.
Cry Havoc; and let slip the dogs of war!
Because we're NOT going to lose to those douchenozzles in Westwood.

I love that mindset and it sounds wonderful in theory, but still no logic to it.
Give me facts as to why.
do i think USC rolls? i dont know. do i think they can play a complete game (fewer than 2 turnovers and keep the foot on the gas for all 4 quaters both OFF and DEF) and come away with a victory? yes.
1. i think CLK learned his lesson from the UA loss. honestly, i dont think he really learned it from Stanford or from UW, but after UA came back, i think he realized he cant just set it on cruise when they are up by 2 scores. i think he will keep the pressure on all game, which will hopefully set a rhythm for the next game(s).
2. I think MK is going to allow more input from the other defensive coaches. will this completely shore up the defense? i dont know. but it should keep it aggressive, and allow the players to play fast. and hoepfully MK remember what Mazzone did to him last year at ASU...
3. the only good team UCLA has faced at pretty much full strength is OSU. Neb had Burkhead out, ASU had Sutton out, and one can argue that Scott went into the game with a concussion. the loss of those players changes the complexion of their respective teams. UCLA struggled mightily with two out of three of those teams.
turnovers will kill USC. so many points left off the board. if they can get that together, should be a fun day...
What? That's only 1 more zero than last year.
Did you forget who we are playing?
I think you have forgotten who we are playing and how we are playing. Anything can happen in the Crosstown rivalry, regardless of how shitty or good one program is over the other.
Dont be so arrogant and cocky.
It was meant as a joke. Lighten up troyboy.
More likely score:
If we have < 2 turnovers then...

UCLA is very young and how those kids handle the pressure of playing a big game will have a huge influence on the outcome. If SC can play big in the first quarter it "could be" another SC run.
45 to 24
