    For the next 5 years, if anyone ever says Scott doesn’t vote USC high enough, just point to today’s ballot. Although I don’t think he gives Stanford enough credit. LOL.

    Notre Dame is way too low, the Trojans way too high.
    As to LSU, they allowed Idaho more points than they did for Washington the previous week.
    Alabama is #1, and there is no close #2, although LSU would be that choice.
    The Kansas State/Oklahomo game this week should prove enlightening.

    Hey Scott, Looks like your blatant pandering to USC fans is showing once again. 12th in the nation is a joke. Forget that you still have UCLA and Notre Dame out of the top 20 in spite of the fact they have actually DEFEATED quality oppents. Did you notice that ND (which you rank as 25th) held Michigan St. to just 3 points? Did you notice that UCLA (which you rank 22)held a high powered Houston offense scoreless until the very end? Did you notice the SC defense couldn’t even keep happless Hawaii and Syracuse teams out of the end zone? Not to mention losing to a middle-of-the-road Stanford team that struggled against San Jose St?
    Show a little class Scott.

    Despite Kif’s pathetic playcalling, #70 at LT, and assuming we have two healthy running backs, the 2012 USC
    Trojans are one of the top 5 teams in NCAA 1A football.

    For goodness sakes, Trojans in Top 5 provided Holmes at center !!!!!!!!!!

    Alabama is easily #1 at this time. LSU picks on the low end of the totem pole to pile up brownie pts. Stanford and USC are about right being just out of the top ten at this time. Stop picking on Walker. Graff was handled too much in this game. The team would be a lot better with Kennard, Wiley, and a healthy Horton on defense. Even Orgeron losing his touch a little getting someone to step up in a big battle on the front lines. Agholor needs to be used like D’Anthony Thomas is at Oregon running some reverses, and even from the wildcat formation. He has the speed required along with Farmer to get outside.

    Wow. T5 for Head Coach. Douche Bag.

    BTW, how’s that new AD you lick working out?

    SC Athletics is going down the tubes.

    How can you call yourself a journalist putting ND at #24? You should have your vote taken away from you.
    Typical UOJ moron.
