    Re: Don't Cry for 'Horns, Trojans. They'll be back

    Guy might be a tool (thus why I didn't read the entire article), but he's right. The real question is will anyone else outside of the traditional powers ever have a real shot at ever winning a championship.

    I wonder if we'd be agreeing with this stuff if we were in that position.

    Methinks not.

    I promise we wouldn't be agreeing if we were in that position.

    Then again, we are not a traditional powerhouse like those other teams. They will be back. I wouldn't be able to guarentee that we would.

    Does the system being flawed and hurting a traditional power have a lesser impact? I don't think so.

    What's to say they won't be in the same exact situation next year? Or these teams fall apart?

    Just because a school will likely have another shot does not make it ok for the system to be flawed and these teams to get "screwed".
