USC opened a 27-point favorite over Notre Dame then quickly moved up to 29, the same margin Hawaii is favored over Washington State.
Q: Scott……..since you said that one of Carroll’s top accomplishments at USC is not having been beat by more than seven points except his first year with an eleven point loss to ND, how can you vote Texas Tech above the Trojans when they were BLOWN OUT by Oklahoma?
A: A loss to Oregon State is worse than getting blown out by Oklahoma.
Q: Assuming the Trojans win big over the Irish, do you think Weis is back coaching them in 2009?
A: This is a topic I’ve heard many comments about this week. The one thing that seems to be in Weis’ favor is his buyout clause and whether Notre Dame is willing to pay him off. Right now, people seem to think he’ll be back for at least one more season.
Q: One of my favorite 1970′s Woody Allen movies is BANANAS, in which there is a scene where Howard Cosell gives a play-by-play account of Allen’s lovemaking with a female companion. Would you, Scott Wolf, be willing to be the color analyst if I hire Pete Arbogast as play-by-play to perform a similar service for my wife and I?
A: Of course. I’m always up for a good comedic appearance.
