For USC, title berth would be gravy

Tax dollars are hard at work trying to find the USC Trojans a path to the national title that includes losing to a 25-point underdog, but the new administration doesn’t swear in until 12 days after this season’s Bowl Championship Series national title game in South Florida.
So, for now, it’s fourth and long for USC, and the Trojans are trailing late, which sounds a lot like the Oregon State game.

You wonder why President-elect Barack Obama selected Sen. Joe Biden (D-Del.) as his running mate instead of Hillary Rodham Clinton?
