What does USC beating up on a small school have to do with this? USC plays this school as a warmup game in the beginning of the season. The small school plays the game for the money, but then the small school competes in a conference where they are competitive, just as USC does.
But, when it comes down to it, we (and many others here) are going to have to agree to disagree with you on whether today's AHL is as good as yesteryear's AHL. There is not a single argument that you can make that will change my mind and, from what I've been reading, there's not a single argument that will change your mind either.
