USC v. LSU: The Game We Want and the Rivalry That Does Not Exist

https://i0.wp.com/www.secsports.com/new/sports/fbc/logos/lsu.jpghttps://i1.wp.com/www.kickoffzone.com/articles/images/SouthernCal_Logo2.jpgThe teams have not played since 1984, when LSU won and went on to lose to Nebraska in the Sugar Bowl, and SC beat Ohio State in the Rose Bowl. One would think that this is one of the biggest rivalries in college football.

There is the issue of Southern Cal taking players out of LSU’s own back yard. Joe McKnight the Parade All-American Co-Player of the Year, and top running back from the 2007, leaving his home state of Louisiana to come to Troy. Also, John David Booty is from Evangel Christian HS in Shreveport, LA, and his brother Josh Booty played at LSU.

There is also the issue of Les Miles and his disparaging statements about USC and the Pac-10. At least Snoop Dogg has Southern Cal’s back.

Then to go back to 2003, there is the incident with the LSU billboard being put up just feet from the USC campus and the the home of the Trojans, the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Thanks onepete.com.

We just need to play the game. Can’t we all just get along, remember it was Notre Dame that beat you in 1984 in Baton Rouge, not USC. We should both concentrate on hating the fat man Charlie Weis.
