Re: Hype or Analysis?
I have no doubt that most people have no worries about USC taking care of UNC (outside of maybe some UNC fans) and doing so handedly. I agree that the ESPN talking heads are just trying to hype the game and if they were betting they'd pick USC to cover the spread.
The thing that gets me is the difference between fans of SEC teams compared to fans of say the ACC. SEC teams seem to tend to pull for each other in non-conference play while ACC fans tend to pull against their conference brethren in non-conference play. One of the things that make the SEC superior is that y'all see the big picture and the need for the SEC to dominate the other conferences. I could be wrong there but that seems to be what I've seen.
