The thought had to have at least crossed Pat Haden's mind, no? Mora is 2-0 vs USC so far and has "taken" Los Angeles from the Trojans. As long as he's at UCLA times could be tough for the men of Troy.

I hate this argument. Bama fans love to use it to justify their 2011 NC that they didn't deserve, and surely will use it again this year should OSU and FSU fall (unlikely but it could happen). They will say "we barely lost to a top 5 team on the road blah blah blah..."
A loss is a loss. A failure...

2007 LSU is often labeled as one of the worst BCS title winning teams. I'm not really sure why. I'll admit we were lucky to get into the national title game with 2 losses, but that was also the result of one of the craziest CFB seasons in recent memory.
People don't seem to remember that the team...

People are always saying how "awesome" a larger playoff with 8 or 16 teams would be. I think 4 team playoff is absolutely perfect, it keeps the regular season important like it is now and basically guarantees that the best team in the nation will get a shot at the title....

It really seems like a no brainer to me. Guy has taken one of the worst teams in the conference and turned them into legitimate conference title contenders in a matter of weeks. It's crazy how much of a turnaround he's caused at SC. If you're the AD you have no choice but to keep him IMO.
