It's safe to watch ESPN again

ESPN, with great fanfare, asked fans last month to vote on where the 2005 USC team ranked among college football's all-time greats. The better question would have been where it measured up among 2005's greatest teams, and the answer, as we learned Wednesday, is no better than second.

For the record, I said back in November that the Trojans didn't look like a No. 1 team, and Texas confirmed my suspicions during the Rose Bowl, which had to be one of the most entertaining championship games ever.

That was a great game. I wonder how well USC would do in the Big XII or SEC.

I still say Auburn would have beaten USC last year, if they'd been allowed to play them.

I think the question of who really deserved the Heisman this year might have been reopened as well...

The absence of Oklahoma, as always, made this year's BCS well worth the big money TV contract. And Mike Tirico and Kirk Herbstreit's best efforts to vocally sabotage an excellent Orange Bowl game will be why ABC's only BCS game will be called by Keith Jackson and Dan Fouts until Jackson's death or final retirement.

Is it just me, or has Matt Leinart lost some arm strength in the past year? He kept dropping bombs on Oklahoma, but he seemed to struggle to throw more than 20 or 30 yards last night. Maybe the NFL scouts who've had doubts about him were right. Though you know a draft is light on talented quarterback when Brodie Croyle is considered one of the most talented prospects by Scouts Inc. and projected to be taken in the second round.

Brr... Hell does seem really cold these days, doesn't it?

Croyle gets drafted by Jets, history repeats itself. w00t for Bama QBs with bad knees.
