How about a few links to keep you occupied until the 2:30 kick off this afternoon.
Spencer Hall has his rootability post up on the SBN Mothership. This is a post suggesting who you should be rooting for in all of the significant games this weekend. Here's what he had to say about the USC/Minn game.
Lean: Minnesota by default ruling on "The Kiffin Principle of Rootability."*
*Rule: if Lane Kiffin is the coach of one team, you root for the other team unless Satan himself is standing on the sidelines, and even then this is negotiable depending on your religious beliefs.
So at the very least people all over the country will be on our side this week.
- Reign of Troy has their preview up of the game. He points out that the last out of conference regular season game the Trojans lost was to Kansas State in 2002.
- The Pioneer Press takes a look back at the 1960 National Championship team.
- Phil Miller takes a look at the Big Ten / Pac-10 matchups this weekend.
- Myron tells us that USC still wants to win, in spite of their sanctions and lack of a bowl destination.
