    Why is USC Football so overrated?

    Four teams in their division had a losing conference record. That conference from top to bottom is so weak its not even funny.

    They were shut out in the 2nd half by a Minnesota team that barely got three wins this year.

    Post your thoughts here.

    Agree that the PAC 12 conference is weaker than some of the other conferences.. But they beat Oregon on the road who beat Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl. They played Stanford tough who lost to Oklahoma St. because of missed field goals. Beat ND on the road. Not saying they are as good as the top SEC teams, but then again who is.

    Many people live in the past - they STILL perceive USC as the same team they were back when they were Tailback U

    Here we go again. Some of you are absolute retards. No honest Trojan fan believes the team is as good as it was 2003-2005/6, but the 2012 team is legit Top 5.

    QB = best in the nation
    RB = returning top RB who averaged 6.9 ypc
    WR = top duo of WR's in the country (Woods & Lee...will be Junior & Sophmore)
    TE = return top two TE's...both will be Sophomores (one a 5 star and one a 4 star recruit)
    Oline = four starters return

    On defense the "back 7" all return. Special teams = All American candidates at kicker & punter both return.

    USC slotted at #2 in preseason poll by Athlon.

    USC has commits from two of the top 7 rated offensive linemen in the nation and are in the mix for the #3 and #7 o-linemen as signing day looms.

    Get a clue before opening your yapper.

    Wilma brags about having the best punter in the league.

    I guess he got so good because he is being used all the time? They are so shitty at moving the ball they let him punt it alot?

    Head coach not only has a pre-season Top 3 ranked team, but also putting together a recruiting class of elite talent.

    Sure, scholarships are limited, but the quality is tops in the nation! (see average star ranking)

    Who said that anybody is a better coach than Saban? Just because a team isn't as good as the reigning champs doesn't prove that the team is overrated.

    Detailed facts on why USC deserves a high rating next year. This thread failed. USC will be one of the favorites in Vegas to take the crown next year.

    They lost to an arizona state team that had a losing record.

    They had trouble moving the ball that game. As well as the minnesota game. Both those teams had losing records.

    They are not elite.

    They'll still find a way to show you they are an average team. I don't care about their talent. As a team, 100% average.

    They will lose 2 games this year they aren't supposed to and will finish once again top 15

    yeah when i like to determine how a team is going to preform the next year when they have a bunch of players coming back is to look at the how the did in the earlier part of the season rather then how they finished.

    punctuate much?
    "preform" what does that mean?

    ^This guy endorsed by Wilma Walters

    Who said anything about me using this years performance to determine next year's outcome?

    They are hyped up year to year the last half decade and have not proven to be elite.
    They lose to shitty teams with losing records almost every year for last four or so years.

    Derrek knows what's up.

    Post your thoughts here.
    My thoughts are that you do not know what you are talking about. USC defeated Oregon in Eugene. The last time I checked, Oregon defeated Wisconsin, the Big 10 Champ, in the Rose Bowl USC also went 10-2 during the season and finished the season at #5. I do not know which team you are a fan of, but if they are playing USC this coming season, they probably are going to get their tails kicked. Dumb post.

    Also, Kiffin is 36 years old. Saban is 60.

    Everyone would take Saban if you had to pick, but give Kiffin time to prove himself. Remember--Belichick used to coach the Browns.

    In fact, Saban was a coordinator for Belichick during the Browns years, when he was Kiffin's age.

    USC can still attract the best recruits cuz it's LA, the girls are all smoke shows, and it's a crazy rich school where the parties are insane. Trojan pride in LA is everywhere with rich alums who give back a lot to the school.
