Colleague could see the fall of Troy from months away

I know how silly you people feel.

You are USC saps, many of you staying home Saturday rather than opening yourself to further humiliation by showing up at the Coliseum.
More people came to the Coliseum to see San Jose State play the Trojans than Arizona, and that’s how far your heroes have fallen in your eyes.
No question, you feel let down. You undoubtedly bought the preseason hype that came with USC being ranked No. 4 in the country.
If you’re a USC arrogant honk, and of course you are, you were irritated at the time the Trojans weren’t ranked higher.
