My biggest concern is we continue to have ssssslllllooooowwww starts!
That might be a problem in this game. I believe USC led at halftime every week during their 8-game win streak. And they (obviously) didn't blow those leads. My sense watching them is that they're front-runners. Some teams get conservative with a lead, but they get amp'd up when they get a lead.
Not to mention, their opponents are subjected to that annoying fight song. And they don't tone it done if they start to pull away, they ratchet it up. After every friggin first down ... DA-DA ... DA-DA-DA-DA. Like a symbolic eff you to their opponent. I attended a USC-ASU game several years ago and by the 4th quarter I wanted to puncture my ear drums. To this day, the very sound of that song makes me want to vomit.
Donald Trump is a douchebag.*
