Besides, he's right. USC is the better TEAM.
You take either Leinart, Bush, White out of USC, USC still can win.
You take Vince Young out of Texas, they'd have a very hard time winning.

Back to your scheduled flame war
Well if he thinks USC is the better team, he can go right ahead and think that. The trophy is in Austin, not L.A., so what's it worth holding on to that? My only real problem is when he said the defense couldn't stop Vince Young. Other than overstating the obvious, a QB should stay in his lane, team captain or not.

..like I said, the guy is 22 years old. He just lost the biggest game of his life. Putting a microphone in front of him right after the game only seems to be a good idea to sleazoid reporters who love to get sound bites...
How many times have you been pissed off and said something out of line? There are many daily situations (people cutting in line at the grocery, cutting you off on the highway ) where you curse people up and down in your mind, but no one puts a microphone in front of you at that very moment AND expects a response...

If the next day or days you hear the same comments, ok, he's a Brooks... but considering the circumstances and how Leinart has carried himself so far, I don't think that's too big of a deal.

Thats right... Vince Young is the guy we should go after if he comes out this year, because he wins and wins big games.

So your argument is that Leinart hasn't won a big game? Oh, but you also said he lost the game and Bush didn't. And that he couldn't stop Vince Young. Sensing a pattern here.............

I couldn't care less about what Leinart said. I have lost the swedish championship 2 years i a row and I understand exactly how he felt. He was pissed because they lost and I don't think its wrong of him to voice that opinion. And the comment about the D, so what he's right. The USC defence or rather the lack of it cost them the game, why should that be a taboo to say?
