    I never said he played over his ability, I said he should never have been in position to win that game. USC’s boneheaded plays on offense let Texas hang around. That’s exactly what I said and that’s exactly what happened.
    USC blew a chance at 21 more points in the first half with bad calls and poor decisions. They could have blown out Texas the same way they blew out Oklahoma in the prior year's Orange Bowl. But, they didn't. They left the door open and Texas capitalized. I will never be over that game.

    Me to Brett, ĒStill salty after 13 years?Ē

    Brettís response ďYep and salty for another 13 years at least. Maybe longer.ď

    Oh the vintage of these sour grapes is still as sweet as Leinartís post game comments.

    What did you expect him to say? His team had just blown a 12 point lead in the last 6:44 for the National Championship. I think most of us would have reacted similarly in that moment.

    Exactly. In the heat of the moment like 10 seconds after it happened. Weíd all react that way. Anyone who says different is lying.

    And they did give the game away I donít care how many Texas fans think otherwise.

    And the better team does not always win a single football game. Thatís just a silly comment.

    Which is exactly why I will never get over it. Just like the Lakers giving away the 1984 Finals to the Celtics and the Dodgers blowing the 2017 World Series to the Astros. This past World Series loss to the Red Sox (outside of that epic choke job in game 4) was much easier to accept because the Red Sox were obviously the better team.

    I have no issue with the Dodgers losing to the Red Sox, I expected it.

    Losing to the Astros was a kick in the nuts though as were the Ď84 Lakers and Ď06 SC. Those three shouldnít have happened. So much self-inflicted damage.

    I expected a good sport, showing good sportsmanship...not a d-bag.

    They do the same with other athletes all the time...everyone knows their smarting after the loss, but they donít show themselves to be d-bags.

    And yeah, the best team DOES always win, you can cut it anyway you want...call or luck, a USC choke, bad calls whatever...itís all part of the game. Calling that silly is delusional.

    Your team got beat. Simple as that...anything more is all personal reconciliation with that fact.

    But Iím done with this...next time Iím in LA Iíll buy you a drink or dinner.

    Matt Leinart is and was a good sport. Get over it. Dude has been nothing but complimentary of Texas and Vince Young for years. His reaction 30 seconds after playing a game like that was completely understandable.

    And no the better team does not always win one single game in any sport. You really think the 2007 Giants were a better team than the 18-0 Patriots? Hahahahaha!!!! They were competitive for one game but I guarantee you play a series of 7 games, they will not win 4. Had they smoked them, then you can at least argue maybe they were a better team. They didnít.

    Iím fine with the loss, it happened. There was a huge amount of craziness in that game. Enjoy the title, Iíll enjoy the two years straight SC won it before, but Iím absolutely never going to say that Texas was a better team because they werenít. They eeked out a win in the last seconds in a game they trailed virtually the whole way. They won the game and thatís all that matters in the end however. Again if Texas came in and laid the wood to USC of course Iíd say theyíre the better team. But they didnít.

    Is not personal man I swear. That game just steams me and always will. And Iím sure it still eats away at all those players. Itís a game they snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.

    Two football games in my fan life still bug me. Superbowl 3 and the Raiders beating the Bmore Colts in the playoffs the famous Ghost to the Post game. Theres one in my high school playing days too. I still have dreams about it. A fumbled pitch returned for a td and a loss to the eventual state champions.

    I wish I only had two.

    All three Broncos 80s Super Bowl blowouts, Super Bowl 48, CU losing to Notre Dame in the '89 Orange Bowl, all the wide right FSU-Miami games. 2005 Broncos AFC Championship loss to Pittsburgh. 1996 upset against Jacksonville.

    High School playoff loss to La Mirada in 1992.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    Technically, they didn't win them.

    I lost the Maryland High School State Semi-Final as a pitcher my Senior year in high school. I can still remember every at bat as the pitcher. Still burns me we lost. Winning the American Legion title in the summer took a little of the sting out of it, but damn, I still remember that, lost 4-1, our only run I hit the dinger. Right handed fat David Wells type guy on the mound, hung a curveball and I said thank you very much.
