Oh...my...god. I'm about to have a heart attack.
If there's a lesson to be learned from this game, to me the lesson is that if you believe you have the tools to win, you should never give up until the arbiters of your domain tell you unequivocably that you've lost. In football, it's the clock and the final score. In the marketplace, it's your financial books. A score of 31-28 with three seconds left in the game is not a sign that you've lost. A stock price of somewhere below five dollars isn't fun, but it's not the last word on the company, either.
And by the way, USC had a chance to go for a tie game with those three seconds. The on-field leader, Matt Leinart, chose to go for the win, believing in himself and the team, using surprise as a competitive weapon. The result? USC 34, Notre Dame, 31, and a dynasty built on belief in oneself continues for another week.
