NCAA Football Polls

Is it just me or is everyone else sick of hearing about how good USC is EVERY FREAKIN' YEAR? Last time I checked LSU was the only team EVER to win TWO BCS CHAMPIONSHIPS! Yet the sickening ESPN, AP, USC love-fest continues.

Sure, they beat Ohio State and I'll even go so far as to say they looked good in that game (although it pains me to be that objective). But that's the only test they'll have all season. Have you looked at their schedule? Other than Ohio State, there isn't a single ranked team in sight for the entire remainder of their season. It's like being declared valedictorian after taking PE, art, home ec. and study hall your senior year. You've got to find a way to at least mix in a game with Utah or Colorado, heck even Fresno State would be an improvement at this point.

USC's one-pete National Championship and wide margins of victory against 2nd tier teams are not enough to keep a #1 ranking through the end of the season. Even a 1 loss team with a stronger schedule at the end of the season should be ranked ahead of USC. Furthermore, if the margin of victory is less than a touchdown in any of their remaining games, they should automatically fall out of the top spot IMHO.
