Somebody at ESPN actually knows USC didn’t win the national championship in 2003?

On the eve of the BCS National Championship game, part of the ESPN establishment is actually recognizing today that USC will not be a “three-peat” champion if they beat Texas tomorrow night.

“LSU won the title two years ago. It”s disingenuous, it”s cheap and it”s a marketing ploy to try to call this thing a “three-peat” “, said Erik Kuselias on The SportsBash just now. Apparently Mike Golic took Lee Corso to task this morning on the “three-peat” thing as well.

Kuselias said Corso had no answer to the logical question: How can you call a team that didn”t make the BCS title game the “national champion” – because they were the AP poll champion – when the AP was part of the formula that determined the BCS title game teams?

I doubt logic will get any traction here, but it”s good to see somebody in the ABC / ESPN / BCS machine standing up for the truth.
