ESPN IS DUMB

Recently to those that watch they have been putting up USC against teams of the top 10 ever.

 

Which is fine, except for a few things.

1. USC 2005 hasnt won the rose bowl yet and honestly I think Texas can take them. (yes debatable).

2. They keep calling them 3 time national champions of the BCS. When if they win this time it will be 2 time. They were not the BCS champ 2 years ago, that was LSU in that bowl game.

3. It is redictulous to see ESPN claiming that they would destroy some of the teams they are.

 

Some of the BS calls

 

They claim the 2005 USC team would beat the '97 Michigan Team by 40 pts? WTF? That team had a defense that could slaughter people.

 

They claim the 2005 USC team would be able to defeat the OSU 2002 team by 20-30 pts. I could see them beating OSU (miami was the real champs that year), but still by that margin?

 

Now something that truly pissed me off here.

 

 

They said that USC 2005 would beat the 2001 Canes.

 

Now we are talking about the canes team that had 17 number draft picks come off of it over the next three years. We are talking about a canes team that had 3 ROY, 1 DPOY and about 90% of that team is now in the NFL.

 

Here is a list of just Some of the players.

 

Dorsey in the NFL

Portis 1300 yards per season in the NFL + All Pro+ ROY

McGahee 1000+ rusher in the NFL

Andre Johnson Pro Bowl WR in the NFL, 2nd in ROY voting,

Shockey Pro Bowl Tight End

Winslow - NFL top 5 pick

Davenport NFL Running back

McKinne NFL player

Bilba NFL player

Gonzalez NFL player

Romberg NFL player

Haji-Rasouli NFL player

Wilkins NFL Player

Vernan Carey NFL Player

Eric Winston NFL 1st round pick this year

Parrish NFL player

 

That is just on offense.

 

Ed Reed DPOY

Jerome McDougle NFL Player

D.J. Williams NFL player

Johnathan Vilma DROY tackles leader NFL

Mike Rumph NFL Player

Williams Joseph NFL Player

Phillip Buchanon NFL player top 10 pick

Sean Taylor(In Nickle Coverage) NFL player

Antrelle Rolle NFL Player top 10 pick too

Kelly Jennings NFL 2nd rounder this year on the bench and dime

Vince Willfork NFL player (pro bowl bound)

 

 

There is alot more players, this is just some of them on that team that I figured I would list for you. I really was annoyed when ESPN claims that USC 2005 would beat this team (that went 30+ wins too btw) by a large margin because they have better talent.

 

Give me a break please. ESPN is turning into soap opera

They claim the 2005 USC team would be able to defeat the OSU 2002 team by 20-30 pts. I could see them beating OSU (miami was the real champs that year), but still by that margin?

 

 

 

 

 

:plain

 

You keep telling yourself that buddy.

 

 

That defense and that margin dude? No F### way they beat OSU by 20-30 pts. You have to admit that. There is no way this team destroys the Woodsen Michigan team by 50. Or defeats the Alabama team that won 2 years in a row by 50. And there is no way they beat that 2001 Miami team let alone run up the score on them

ESPN is just trying to run up the raitings for its sister station ABC and giving USC as much pub as it can...the 2001 Canes would have kicked the crap out of any of the three USC teams of the past 3 years that canes team was loaded and it was evident when they had 6 first-round picks in 02...what USC team has ever done that...didn't think so

Hmmmm...

 

You've just ESPN'd your own thread. What was the final score of that Fiesta Bowl anyways?

 

And yes, they've overdone it, as usual. Hypothetical scenario's like this are lame because... THEY'RE HYPOTHETICAL. It's kind of stupid, but, I will admit it, you have to kind of do something... This USC team might, make that probably, is the best college football team of all time (at least on offense). The stars are aligned for USC, let them bask in that moment and let ESPN overtalk about it.

 

You always have the option of changing the channel. But, I agree, it's a bit much. I haven't watched that much, but occasionally vote in their polls on the matter.

You do realize that they haven't lost in 3 years right? I agree with you about the margins, but they would have beat tOSU and Miami.

No they didn't. They only had 1 indefeated season. Although I guess if SC loses to Tejas it will be almost the same thing. It would be a good game, but I don't see SC losing to Miami.

usc's only had one undedeated season. they lost to cal the year they split with lsu, went undefeated last year and are undefeated going into the rose bowl.

 

miami lost to udub in 2000, went undefeated in 01, was undefeated in 02 until losing to tosu.

 

in fact i believe the streaks have gone the exact same length.

Well I didn't know the streaks are the exact same length. All I knew was that it would be almost the same thing. Sorry I don't know the streaks of both teams of the top of my head.

 

 

Yeesh

I hate Miami, and even I thought they won that game, that pass interference call at the end was a huge BS call.

yeah in Dorsey's 4 year college Career he only lost 2 games

 

The first one and the last one (blah hehe, you know love you OSU fans gotta raze you for it :) )

 

But yes the streak is pretty much the same if USC wins this game. Except miami has more in a row still.

 

I mean position by position breakdown for the teams is unbelievable to miami

 

Leinart vs Dorsey = Leinart

Bush +white vs Portis + McGahee = Portis (4 season 1300 each best ever for that) + McGahee (1000 every year)

Bing vs Ed Reed = Ed Reed

Dominique Byrd vs Jeremy Shockey + Kevin Winslow= Hmm Jeremy and Kevin perhaps?

Winston Justice vs Carey = about equal both are RT and drafted about the same area.

Frostee Rucker vs Johnthan Vilma = Hmmm hard one, How about Vilma DROY ?

Jarret vs Andre Johnson = Not even close Johnson

 

That is just a few of the skill position players. Most of the others miami blows them away like specially in the secondary. That whole secondary for Miami was number 1-2 picks and all in the NFL now. Rolle as the nickel lol

No more BS than the non-call with time running out in regulation. There never even would have been an overtime, clock would have been run out.

 

And, back on topic, this USC History thing is stupid. To say they'd blow out the 01 Miami team or the 02 Ohio State team is just dumb. Could they beat them? Sure. But they would have been great games. I love how people act like our 02 team had no talent. Like we didn't have 14 players drafted 3 months after that game.

Try Bryant Mckinnie instead whom I believe never gave up a sack in his entire college career.

im pretty sure the streaks are equal now.

 

and willis didnt even play till 02 because gore tore up his knee that spring.

 

frank gore was the man backing up portis in 01 and wouldve taken over in 02, in fact im pretty sure gore wouldve been the best running back to ever play at miami if he dont tear his knees up.

Oh and I love that Portis was given the advantage over Bush. :lol

 

Come on.

 

Show me Clinton Portis' 500 yard game and his Heisman Trophy.

 

The combo of Bush + White > Portis + McGahee simply because of Bush. Pure gamechanger at the collegiate level in every way.

 

 

And both streaks are indeed 34 games.

Yeah, I kinda misread he was saying Portis AND McGahee over Bush AND White, but I don't agree with that either, as seen in my edited post.

 

In terms of the pure 01 vs. 05 teams, I don't see how anyone can say that.
