It was an arrogant day and night. All around. I had bought a bottle of champagne before noon, hung out poolside at the Four Seasons, got a little eucalyptus steam room action in, drank the champagne all before the game kicked off. Like last year with the Oregon game when I got married, I was celebrating my anniversary this weekend. Even my wife, who did not go to a football school (although she got to see a Harbaugh National Title at USD) loved this game, even if the outcome wasn’t perfect.
The Pacific 12 Conference suspended McDonald for an illegal hit on Stanford receiver Chris Owusu on Saturday.
The thrilling game against Stanford may have been a preview of the renewed excitement and relevance USC can expect once out of NCAA jail.
