Always a bridesmaid

Is this some kind of joke, USA Today?

I've come to dread the first Saturday of December.

Do I think my beloved Bruins will beat USC on Saturday? No. I just hope they're competitive.

Do I want them to win? Of course. When I signed my letter of intent, I expected to witness at least one win against the Trojans. Two years after graduating, I'm still waiting for that one win.

At the same time, a win over USC would open the door for Florida to enter the national championship game, and I'd hate to inflate the Gators' sense of entitlement any more.

Yeah, I'm still bitter.
