    I'm sure I don't need to tell you that the rest of the country says a big "waaaah". There is so much SEC football on TV, it's ridiculous if you aren't an SEC fan. What you are saying is, we dominate everything, we get more revenue because, well, ESECPN, but we don't wanna play early cuz it's hot.

    It's strictly formula for them. Play a cupcake + at home = play early.

    If it meant more in the PAC 12 USC would have never fallen to the level they are at now.

    And you thought I was going to disagree with you that football is more important to people in the Southeast than to people in SoCal? I don't.

    But does that have anything to do with USC's current predicament? No. We were always the flagship of the conference and even as shit as we are, the conference still needs a competitive USC. We typically dominate TV ratings compared to other conference teams. We should have pursued our own TV contract rather than take the meager nibble that gets divided amongst everyone. Sorry, but no way that Wazzu, the Beavs, Colorado, ucla should be on equal TV revenue footing with USC, Oregon, Furd.

    More importantly, we have never really recovered from the inside hit job at the NZAA. At the same time, USC hired Steven Sample, then Max Nikias to be President and both were/are egotistical ivory tower elitists who wanted academic rankings above football. Me personally, I was happy to have USC be a decent school where alums went on to solid careers and we played damn good football. To know that we are considered academically on par with Berkeley and ucla means jack to me. Until USC's administration makes a full and complete commitment to the football program, we won't ever be shit again. You think I don't know that?

    I don't know what goes on with the school politics but its it's a shame to let a once proud tradition of football excellence slide to also ran status. I always rooted for the condoms once a year. When they played Notre Dame.
