LSU's opponents finished 104-75
USC's opponents finished 77-86


LSU beat 9 teams that finished with winning records
USC beat 4

LSU was defeated by KY that finished 8-5 and Ark that finished 8-5
USC was defeated by Org 9-4 and Stan 4-8


PLEASE tell me how they can even be *considered* in the discussion??

Case closed.

ESPN is run by idiots. :mad:

I don't think they are Hyping the LSU isn't #1, they are hyping a playoff system.

As you requested I will reply to your thread.

I never said USC should be ranked number 1. I said I believe they are the best team right now. Not collectively over the season.

USC best team right now and would beat anyone IMO

LSU best team this year as decided by the NC game.

Where was ESPN for the 2005 National Championship. I didn't hear much clamoring for a playoff when Auburn went undefeated. They were just relieved that their darling USC got in.

They start screaming this playoff talk when it's convenient for them.

ibelieve: Thanks...Fair enough. But one could argue the Eagles were the best team in the NFC the last month.... means nothing in big picture.

USC is a great team, but it ticks me off to see ESPN diminish our Championship.

That was '02, iirc. And I agree. They just kind of strugged their shoulders....oh well....

I agree. Under the system that's in place, LSU must be ranked #1. You can't rank based on speculation, which only furthers the need for a playoff system. If they did play one another, it would be a tough, tough game. Next year? :)
