Your average attendance in 2012 was 87,945 for a 93,607 stadium, and it dropped to 73,126 this year. Back in 2000 USC averaged just over 57,000 a game.

I wouldn't say "rigged", but ESPN definitely "controls" or "pushes" the narrative of college football. Not who wins/loses, but who gets pub, gets judged/ranked favorably/unfavorably.
But college football is so subjective it naturally lends itself to that problem....

Although Kiffin was not the QB coach at SC this past season, his (in)decision to not name a starting QB for the first few games was labeled a complete disaster. Both Kessler and Wittek looked completely lost and diffident. I know the dual QB thing has worked for some schools, but however Kiffin hand...
