just another double standard by an SEC fan...
Really, instead of sun belt teams USC played teams from the Mountain West and WAC, so what's your point?
In 2004 championship year USC played 4-7 Colorado ST (MWC), 5-6 BYU (WAC), and 6-6 Notre Dame. Yeah that's a very impressive OOC schedule.
In 2005 USC played 5-7 Hawaii (MWC), 8-5 Fresno St (WAC), and again Notre Dame in Charlie Weiss first year. Thanks for reminding us all of USC's previous easy road to the championship.
Word of advice next time do some research before trying to point the finger at another team or conference. Those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.
That being said I'm still pulling for the Trojans.
