According to ESPN's BPI rankings USC is 75 spots ahead of San Diego. They're green with jealousy.
Everything to them is a pissing match with us and I mean everything. TDS sports is no world beater either right now and they have a very, very low ceiling to boot. Their football team has WAC stocking stuffer games and will never make a BCS game while their basketball team is playing in high school sized gyms and now losing more and more in them. I'm not saying we had a better year, because we didn't, but all in all I think any relatively fair minded zoob would switch positions in a heart beat no matter how much they say they wouldn't.
Their loss to San Diego must really sting. I doubt most of the zoobs knew San Diego was even a team when they joined the WCC. They can downplay Utah's win over USC all they want but it is a huge win for the program. Deep down inside they know we have a less talented and smaller team than most the Pac-12 right now. They know the win is big and "shouldn't happen". They can see us beginning to turn the corner. With their low ceiling and our high Pac-12 ceiling once we do in fact turn that corner we may never look back. You can already see this happening in football. Not only have we won 3 straight we have dominated them in recruiting.
Sure, USC is no world beater in hoops. True. But the fact that this team, which was predicted to take undisputed 12th place in the conference, despite being smaller, overall less talented, and younger has won 3 straight games including the team at the top of the conference and a post season game. It's a sign of change. It's the dawn of a new era under Coach Krystkowiak. This does not bode well for their superiority paradigm. Let them downplay the game. Their days are numbered. But more simply at the end of the day we won our game and they didn't.
Don't get me wrong. I don't give two flying $#!+s about TDS sports at the end of the day but I do amuse myself with their idiocy. After last nights win their downplaying of our win is just icing on the cake. I'm so pumped for tonight I am writing long posts at work today.
