The Difference

What's the difference between a good loser and a bad one?

USC's former quarterback Matt Leinart after losing the national championship to Texas last year:

I still think we're a better team, they just made some good plays and won the game.

Michigan Coach Lloyd Carr after losing to #1 Ohio State today:

We lost to a better team.

I still haven't decided whether Lineart was being a poor loser/cock or he is simply a product of Southern Cal attitude. After living in another area of the country for a while I'm convinced Midwestern behavior is better mannered, and collegiate sportsmanship is no different.

(Just wait on my post about sports fans in Texas...)
