Playing for the USC Trojans can be a dream for a college football player, but sometimes competing for National Championships year-in and year-out can be a nightmare.
After USC lost the Rose Bowl Game to Texas in 2006, athletic director Mike Garrett addressed the team, as recounted by Josh Booty, brother of the then-incoming signal-caller John David:
Garrett came into the locker room after the game and looked at JD and said 'We don't lose football games here at 'SC.' And he looked right at JD and said 'Don't ever lose a game here.' That was a tough one for JD to swallow, I know that.
John David went on to lose two games in 2006, though he did win the Rose Bowl Game!
