USC is still getting hit by irrational USC hate. Everyone knows the Trojans should rank around 10-15. Voters go: "USC is good and I hate that. I'd rank them 12th, but they fall six spots because of my hate for them. Or should I do seven? No, then that Pac-12 blog guy might get everyone emailing me again." The point here is we should all be excited about the showdown between No. 4 Oregon and USC, which is ranked 12th by a really smart person. (No, not me, silly, ESPN's Dari Nowkhah. Ryen Russillo, who has been touted as the smartest person in sports radio history, ranks the Trojans 10th.) If Oregon can stomp on a really, really good USC team, it might turn the Crimson Tide of sentiment about who is the nation's best one-loss team. And if USC notches the upset, the nationwide consternation would be absolutely beautiful. Think about it. Folks would have to say this: "Lane Kiffin is a good football coach." It's possible the heads of Tennessee fans everywhere would spontaneously explode (stop grinning, Alabama fans). Why Week 12 matters in the Pac-12 - Pac-12 Blog - ESPN Ted Miller is on fire!
