CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - The media wasn't allowed to wait for coach Pete Carroll in the visitors' post-game interview room immediately after the game in fear that the walls might be too thin, and we could hear what was being said in USC's locker room across the narrow hallway.

There was no way to quell the booming baritones, though, as the Trojans sung the USC fight song moments after pummelling Virginia 52-7.

You probably could have heard the Trojans banging on the lockers and celebrating from the 50-yard line.

Meanwhile, down the hall, Virginia linebacker Clint Sintim hung his head, barely looking up over his glasses, and quarterback Peter Lalich wrung his hands so tight they turned red as he spoke to reporters.

As was expected, their postgame demeanors were as polar opposite as their performances on the field.
