......Boyd says Vince Young just made for a very interesting NFL draft. The official party line, stated by last night's game announcers, is Young will return to Texas. But I don't see how he can after night's last performance.

What to make of Pete Carroll's fourth-and-one gamble at the Texas 45 yard line? He had no reason to believe LenDale White woudn't make it. But surely he must have thought of the consequences of handing the ball back to Young on a short field.

USC guard Fred Matua:

"We're not about putting the game in our defense's hands. We want to take it from them in our own terms. If we go down, we go down fighting, not hopin' and wishin'. This is how we play at SC, and any high schooler that wants to play like this, man, come on through. We don't play scared."

I guess that attitude is what made the game worth losing a little sleep.
