...that nobody's giving USC a chance? I'm sure my paranoia will subside once we have a national championship under our belts. Until then, I guess I'll sit here and collect a paycheck for work that I'm not doing.
I can't be the only person a little worried. Can I? I'd prefer to be that overly confident loudmouth, pointing to myriad statistics, regurgitating what I read and hear on ESPN, taking a second mortgage out on the house and laying it on the ducks to win big, shouting "Victory is most assuredly ours!" from my office door ...and so on and so forth. But, I'm not, and I don't say things like "assuredly" in public.
Is it reasonable to have faith in your team and a healthy dose of fear at the same time?
