    Caught a CFB Bowl/Playoff preview on the radio last night. To espn's credit, they spent about as much time discussing the Rose Bowl as either of the Playoff games. But that, alas, is where the credit ends. They discussed Penn. St's great run of successive wins; Penn St.'s great QB; Penn St.'s great running back; and Penn St.'s great win against Wisconsin in the B1G CG. Not. One. Word. About. USC.

    I hope espn and the media keep this up everyday btw now and the game. Seriously. I want our Trojans to enter the historic Rose Bowl with plenty to prove. I'll never forget the hack-job espn did in building up USC, everyday, on and on, over and over, leading to the Rose Bowl against Texas. Did us no favors. Now, hopefully they'll pump up the overrated Nittany Lions daily!

    FIGHT ON!

    Cool - let Penn State believe their own hype, SC will come in with a chip on its shoulder...... That comeback in the Conference Championship game was terrific, but we saw that all the time when Wilcox was our DC as well......

    Also you can't rely on comebacks when you are being stopped at every turn or the other team adjust like they should.

    Ped State is hurt because they aren't in the cfp. That will be espn's excuse for them when we beat them. "Our favorite team in this game, Ped State, was not motivated to play in the Rose Bowl because they felt they deserved to be in the cfp."

    Doesn't it seem like the love to dribble how wonderful Penn st recovered from sanctions, do they ever mention ours. Party time is over, time to dominate once again

    Did Pedo lost 30 scholies? Have class reduced to 15 scholies? Hope our players have underdog mentality.

    Let them over hype. It can only work in our favor.

    At best, ESPN (and others) will say that USC got hammered "because it didn't cooperate." At worst, they'll say USC was paying Bush and his family. They will ignore what the California Court of Appeal determined, after hearing the actual evidence:

    "as Johanningmeier acknowledged in his deposition, without a finding against McNair, no penalties could have been instituted against USC for Bush’s receipt of improper benefits."

    "the ensuing COI report was worded in disregard of the truth to enable the COI to arrive at a predetermined conclusion that USC employee McNair was aware of the NCAA violations."

    In other words, the NCAA knew it had to find McNair responsible in order to sanction USC, so the COI lied in its report so it could hammer SC. I guess that doesn't fit the media's narrative.

    If espn wasn't biased against USC you would think you had the wrong station.
    USC vs the world, the saga continues...

    I wouldn't think too much of it. Penn State was in the national discussion about the CFP and was in the best conference championship game of the weekend. USC's last two games ended up being after thoughts due to ND and UGLY being absolutely terrible, along with USC being unable to get in the Pac 12 championship game. I'm sure the Vegas line has them thinking Penn State vs the world as well. The discussion will even out as the game gets closer.
