I am a gator fan, and I have talked to many that say the swamp is the loudest. the simple fact remains, USC is constantly overrated. they produce pros who turn out to be busts. that doesn't impress me.
Yeah, yeah, yeah! Bottom line, AU had that same pro backfield as they had when they finished undefeated the next year. SC came into Jordan-Hare and took care of business, shut their ***** down with a new QB Leinart, and blanked the Tigers. Keep dreaming, AU could not beat SC in that year or the next (when SC was even better).

gator qb's do about as well as USC's, but they aren't drafted quite as high. gator wide receivers? there are probably 10 of them in the league right now. gator running backs? well let's see, I think emmit smith was pretty good. certainly better than wife killer and marcus allen. earnest graham is now a starter and producing. also, isn't fred taylor a good back? wilbur marshall and jack youngblood are both in the NFL hall of fame. they also have a NC and a heisman more recently than USC. matt cassell starting does not impress. brad johnson never started at florida state, and he was actually a good NFL starter. I didn't deny their first round picks, I said those first round picks suck. mike williams finished his NFL career with 44 catches for 539 yards and 2 catches. the university of miami and florida state have the most players in the NFL.

USC has had more pros than any other school out there. In fact, I believe SC has had more Pro Bowlers and NFL Hall of Famers than any other school out there. I am going to recall all those just from my tiny little brain (and a Duck has a little brain): Marcus Allen, OJ Simpson, Anthony Munoz, Ronnie Lott, Lynn Swann, Bruce Matthews, Frank Gifford. I know they have more but I can't recall (google them and I know you will find more...especially more than UF). They have also had more 1st round picks than any other school, an SC player has played in almost every Super Bowl (I believe), and I believe Matt Cassell is even starting for the Patriots without taking a start at The University of Southern California.

Yep, you are right, the pros from USC do suck. Problem is, all other schools out there suck even more (even my Ducks...darn shame).

oh my mistake, I forgot, having the same running backs automatically means they had the same line and coaching staff. I guess line doesn't make a difference.

the problem is that history doesn't record those facts. all they see is that USC lost to a team with a losing record. the gators (my team) lost to ole miss who had their two losses in the final seconds each time. a loss is a loss, but unfortunately some teams with a loss feel the need to run up the score for style points. I would say that there would be a playoff within the next 5 years.

Yup i agree, sometimes you just see the score and am like 'ok that must of been a close game' without looking in to see how the match went.

my problem is that once the gators lose, it's like, DAMN IT. should I even bother to watch anymore. who cares about the freaking citrus bowl. you kind of lose interest if you think it's going to be a down year. with a playoff system, the year actually lasts the who year. overcoming the sponsors would be the biggest issue. college football has become a bit too commercialized and it has hurt the game. there was a time when it was the orange bowl, or the sugar bowl. that was before fedex, nokia, and tostidos got involved. I was watching a bowl game last year and they said, "coming up at halftime a special performance by ZZtop." WTF is that? this isn't the superbowl. this isn't the giants vs. the patriots, it's the jayhawks vs. the hokies. they have got to find a way to have a playoff system while keeping the sponsors a part of it.
