What I see is USC Traveling across the Nation week 1 to play at one of the toughest places in College Football to play and winning. I then see them playing 2 teams that are traditional rivals for them and winning, not padding their schedule with cupcakes in a hope of running the table in their conference to go undefeated.

And I HATE USC.

But I don't like cry babies either. If Auburn would have played 1 or 2 BCS Conference teams instead of the patsies (CITADEL!!!!) they played, I'd be right there with you, throw in a Clemson, or a West Virginia, or even a Texas A&M and I'd give them credit, instead, they padded the schedule and ran the table in the SEC. Which, Georgia is a let down every single year, Tennessee is a joke, every year they Choke a big game, every single year but one, 1998 and in that one, they almost lost to Syracuse in what is still one of my favorite games that I've ever seen. So the SEC does cannibilize itself, sure, they are tough, but Miss State and Ole Miss haven't been viable in years. And Vandy? Come on, what a dog they are. So you get up for the Bama game, but you still played a joke of a team in Kentucky, a Houston Nutt coached Arkansas team, joke, and struggled against the same team USC beat week 1 and you got to play them on a nuetral field.

Give the big 10 a hard time, heck I hate PSU more than I hate anything else on the planet and wish them 0 win seasons for the rest of time, but I won't have any of this Auburn got robbed stuff. Not without debate. And I'm throwing out facts. Fact, The Auburn Schedule did NOT Warrant them jumping over the other 2 undefeated teams of the 04 NCAA Football season. Sorry but that's a fact.
