Re: 2010 Auburn/FSU beatdowns were the eve of 33-6 run; Did USC...NEED this loss?
Believe me, I'd never WANT that beatdown. No one would.
But I think if you look at history...at teams that have sustained success over 5, 8, 10, 12 years....the recipe includes an occassionaly ass whooping to remind everyone "Hey, you have to WORK just as hard now as before to keep up this standard".
It sucks. But, look at other programs who have sustained long-term success. They have those occasional wake up calls. Its just part of the recipe.
