Why Does the SEC Hate USC?
I would like to thank you the readers for elevating my writing to Featured Columnist status for USC Football. The primary reason I believe this has happened so quickly (30 days) is that I have been able to to elicit a lot of emotion and subsequent discussion on the Tennessee and SEC's outright hate of Lane Kiffin and his desertion of the football team at such a critical time in recruiting.
However, along with the Kiffin hate has come unbridled vitriol towards USC, Los Angeles, and anything left coast. Your humble correspondent has been called about every name in the book, as I have attempted to look at the issues in an honest way.
With that in mind, these are the questions that have arisen in our spirited debate over Lane Kiffin and whether he is indeed the anti-christ and whether USC in all its "lies and recruiting violations" deserves this "scum."
Here are some questions that have arisen in the last few weeks...
Question No. 1: Why is it there had been so much hate for new USC coach Lane Kiffin?
Question No. 2: Why is is that so many people are giddy about the possibility of sanctions for the USC football program?
Question No. 3: Why is it that the SEC "gang" generally discounts USC's football history as being a result of a weak conference and soft out of conference schedule?
Question No. 4: Why is it that so many people are thrilled to see USC and Lane Kiffin married so they can revel in the hopeful destruction of both?
I believe there are at least 10 reasons that can be pointed to which can explain why this school and the subsequent coaching transition that has elevated yours truly from unknown to less unknown has also pitted toe to toe the SEC/Tennessee and the Pac 10/USC.
My thanks to loyal reader Mark Kinsbury for coming up with this idea.
