from Colonel Mustard
This is the most interesting game since the Rose Bowl and our chance at the national spotlight. This game does not make or break our season. In that regard the Missouri and Iowa State games are more important. But if we are extremely completive in the game win or lose it will give the players and the entire program a boost of confidence. If we get blown out it doesn't ruin the season, it simply indicates that we haven't progressed enough to play at the highest level. My biggest concerns are the mismatch of their superb WR on our corners. Additionally, can our offensive line pass protect against an extremely athletic defense? I know that our players are very excited to play this game. I hope not too hyped as we used to be against Oklahoma. USC looks at this as just another game. We beat a Michigan team with more talent because our guys were more ready to play.
Games like this are why we are college football fans. Our fan support will make the Coliseum a neutral site and I am extremely excited to see if this will be another 1969 game.
Keep the faith. GBR.
