USC linebacker Scott Ross talked a lot about Notre Dame last week. He took almost every opportunity to bad-mouth the Irish. His comments were obviously generated by the frustration of three years of losing to Notre Dame. Saturday's game marked his fourth loss in a row to the men with the gold helmets.
While Ross rambles on about what's wrong with the Irish and why he hates them, have him answer one question: "How does it feel to beat Notre Dame?" Then wait for the sweet sound of silence.
