I think I agree with Leinart. I think USC was the better football team. Vince Young made the key plays when it mattered, and USC did not.
But again, in the end, what matters is the score at 0:00 remaining. And it was Texas 41, USC 38.
Note: I promise not to rant anymore about the Trojans loss (sounds weird to even type it – has been so long! 🙂 )
