Tony Kornheiser disses USF



kornheiser.Earlier this week, ESPN's Pardon the Interruption co-host Tony Kornheiser was trying to rip into Notre Dame and he actually ended up taking a swipe at the South Florida Bulls. Kornheiser was talking about how Notre Dame should be upset with its loss to USF last Saturday. Why?

"They lost to a mediocre team from a terrible conference,'' Kornheiser said.

The natural instinct for Bulls fans is, of course, to be insulted. But, when you think about it, Kornheiser's description is not all that far off, is it? The Big East really is not a good conference. And USF has never won the Big East. In fact, it has never even finished second. A mediocre team from a terrible conference? Historically, that's pretty accurate.
