They showed be ashamed they lost to Ole Miss, after all the bs talk their fans have been doing this season (not on this forum) its shut them up a bit. I am still waiting to be impressed by Florida.

PAC-10 schools traditionally play each other tough. No conference victory is a given for USC, that's PAC-10 play!! Oregon St., Stanford, UCLA. USC should have beat those guys in the recent years. But, no, PAC-10 play is *****. USC has more of a chance to lose to Arizona, than they do Oklahoma. That's a fact.

Who you got?

SEC vs. God?

I'll take the SEC 118-4.

Gee, I can go back to the annuals of history (1970) and clearly remember SC rollin into Alabama with Sam "Bam" Cunningham and lickin' Bama 42-21. Now, that was then and this is now, but I'd still take USC. Heck, didn't SC go into Jordon-Hare and kick around AU a few years back? Yep, they did. I guess only LSU is a hostile environment. Tell me something, how long are the statutes of limitations to consider a team "not used to a hostile environment?" Now, I'm sure you'll laugh, but Autzen (Oregon) is not the friendliest confines out there and they play there. In fact, I believe the loudest crowd ever recorded (127 db) was during the SC game in Autzen. And yes, they have recorded SEC stadiums.

"Autzen's 59,000 strong make the Big House sound like a pathetic whimper. It's louder than ... The Swamp at Florida, The Shoe in Columbus, and Death Valley at Louisiana State. Autzen Stadium is where great teams go to die."- Michigan Columnist

Autzen Stadium - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


I've been to LSU during my Grad School days at UT, and yes, it is loud and intimidating. Bunch of drunk cajuns can really get going, but it isn't anything so crazy that a top program like SC would quiver.

I'm not saying it would be a surprise, its just not a fact. You might as well say they have a better chance of getting beat by Arizona than by Texas, UCLA, LSU, etc etc etc. Im just saying its a lame comment.
Anyone who says "thats a fact" in college football must not watch it that much.

CF is a religion to me. Maybe I over stated "fact". Nothing is fact, any given Saturday. Your right. But if you think it's easier for USC to get through PAC-10 play undefeated, than beat Oklahoma or LSU, than I don't think your watching much college football. You may think the comment is lame and it may be my opinion, but it's all about opinion. And the last three seasons for USC show exactly what I'm talking about.

Well you just changed your premise, OF course its easier to win ONE stand alone game against a good/great team than win 9 of 9 conf games. USC just showed us that. I know USC is 6-2-1 against OU, but they play on average every 5 years or so....that being said I think OU or ANY team would have a better chance of beating USC (or any top ten team for that matter) than go undefeated in Conf. play. Thats just plain TOUGH!!


I just won $50 from a USC fan that bet me they'd go undefeated in the regular season, that was wednesday night.....I'll take that bet everytime. It only took one game, ha ha
