    I had a dream last night that we win 29-17. So I’ll go with that row now, but may change it after thinking about it some more. 29 seems like an unlikely score for a team. .
    I saw a door that said exit only. So I entered through it and went up to the guy working there and said "I have good news. You have severely underestimated that door over there. By like a hundred percent." Demetri Marti

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    Almost all of us predicted a pretty close game. In the end it was not even as close as the score suggests.

    If u told me beforehand that we would score 41, I wouldn't have believed it. If you had told me we would lose a fumble for a TD, drop a punt return at our 10, and have a punt blocked in our own end zone and still score 41 I really wouldn't have believed it, or that we would win at all.

    In a way, our ability to blow them out despite those 3 mistakes — which ordinarily would cost us just about any game — is evidence of just how much we dominated them.

    Don’t forget the jump ball that went right through Blair’s hands.

    It is insane how much went USC’s way to have still been blown out.

    Hey #1 this week. Look at that!

    You were startlingly on target. Unlike scratch, you didn't even cheat.
