Not to be overly dramatic but as was pointed out to me, these next four games could have far reaching implications. Consider this... TAM just received two 5 star commitments after a “loss” to Clemson, they’re riding high with Fisher, we’re hearing the SEC argument again and Forbes just proclaimed theirs the most financially powerful program in the country. Texas has been displaced in that category, and by the Aggies. OU appears to have reloaded without skipping a beat, Murray looks like a world beater and they are killing it — so far — on the recruiting trail. Riley is perceived as being one of, if not “the” best and brightest young coaching talents. We really need to do something to make a splash or we may fall way behind and take years to catch up. When have “both” TAM and OU had this level of momentum at the same time? So these next four games are really critical. We desperately need a win Saturday. Regardless of the caliber of USC this year, they are a very high profile program and a win could springboard the program. Carry that through to TCU and now we are really cooking. A loss to USC would represent a critical, lost opportunity. The program is in a precarious position at the moment IMHO. I guarantee you that folks like CDC know it. They have to be concerned.
