SZVETITZ COLUMN: Loss was no upset

Mike Szvetitz  / A View From The Lazy Boy

September 9, 2007

South Florida is good.

Shhhh … word might get out.

What about Auburn? Umm …

It’s hard to get a feel for a team when you never know which one is going to show up on any given play.

The only thing we do know about this Auburn football team is that it wears blue jerseys at home.

Oh, and the band plays a mean version of "Final Countdown."

Final: South Florida 26, Auburn 23.

Start the countdown.

Five: Turnovers against USF.

Four: Interceptions for Brandon Cox in the last two games.

Three: Third-quarter fumbles.

Two: Close calls.

One: Loss.

Zero: Celebration.

Losing to USF at home might seem like an upset to those who didn’t watch any of Saturday night’s game.

For those of us who saw it, we know better.

We know South Florida is good.

We know Auburn isn’t.

South Florida might be a directional school, but it sure doesn’t play like it.

Auburn found that out.

Did the Tigers know it was coming?

They should have. This is a team that has talent and drive and - the biggest intangible of all - nothing to lose.

The Bulls aren’t a Cinderella story. They’re their own novel. And at 10 years old, this program has just written its best chapter: How to go from humble beginnings to humbling one of the best programs in the country over the last three years.

South Florida is a good football team. Believe it.

And good teams don’t get wide-eyed.

Good teams play well in hostile environments.

Good teams celebrate in the other team’s house 10, 15, 20 minutes after the final buzzer.

Good teams play like South Florida did Saturday night.

But don’t tell anyone.

You wouldn’t want to ruin the upset.

If that’s what you want to call it.

I’m not.

South Florida is good.

Auburn isn’t.

How can they be when, with a minute to play at home with a fifth-year senior quarterback at the helm, not try and go for the win? Maybe it’s because that quarterback has three more turnovers than he does touchdown passes.

Maybe. Maybe not.

Whatever the reason, one thing’s clear, Auburn’s now 1-1.

But who’s counting?

Upset?

Nah. South Florida’s good.

Auburn’s not.

And after Saturday, the word is out.

I'd prefer "Auburn is good. South Florida is better." but I'll take it.

And I can't help but chuckle when someone bashes "directional schools" Yeah, like Southern California?  ::)

Very Funny Article, my favorite part, "How can they be when, with a minute to play at home with a fifth-year senior quarterback at the helm, not try and go for the win? Maybe it’s because that quarterback has three more turnovers than he does touchdown passes."

you cant really say those Cali schools are Directional schools because EVERY school in california is a directional school.  most people think of the michigan schools like (central, western, eastern)  or northern illinois, southern miss, east carolina, western kentucky, etc.

This field reporter for the paper was obviously still in shock!  We are very good - actually we just picked off the only team to beat the National Champions last year!  We are better than good - just ask the AP - oh yeah - they slighted us too. 

No Respect....
