So yeah, our 2005 loss to USC will always be our most impressive loss. BK will never and could never hang with a team like that.
I guess we get to find out next year when Clemson comes calling.

To your point, that is basically a must win for Kelly. Either he can eventually beat a top dog or he can't. You can't keep losing to elite teams if you think your program is elite, sometimes you have to actually win those games.

The thing is, had Kelly won a title and 2-3 more of those "big" games, the blowout loss to Michigan would have been forgotten by now. Pretty much everyone gets blown out once in a while. The issue is Kelly has no signature wins to fall back on when the blowout occurs.
