The beauty of the internet is that if you wait a couple of days a rant that you wanted to write will be written by someone else. Then, all you have to do is link to that article instead of writing one yourself. Thank you Slate for writing an article about the dumbest ESPN segment since the mock GM press conferences. If you haven't seen them yet, ESPN is running hypothetical match ups between this years Southern Cal team (a team that hasn't even won the National Championship yet!) and great championship teams of the past 50 years. Their conclusion- USC would win them all- or at least most of them.
For the record- the 1995 Cornhuskers team would not only have beaten the 2005 Trojans- they might have killed Matt Leinart and seriously injured Reggie Bush.
