This will be the first year that he gets to have an experienced team that is built to play his type of football. It isn't like he was just rebuilding with talent that could play in his system. He had to rebuild completely and use guys that where not at all right for what he was doing.
That being said I will still have to wait and see how improved the team is but I don't think USC is nearly as good as you are making them out to be.
Um...you do realize that people said the exact same thing when Carson Palmer and crew left don't you? USC is as loaded as any team in the country. They have two weeks to prepare for NU. It's stupid to think that U$C is not going to be a great team this year. $C has had the #1 recruiting class in the country 3 out of the last 4 years....which accounts for the bulk of their current roster. 26 5 star recruits
in that time frame. Booty was the #1 recruit in the country when he came to $C and is throwing to Smith and Jarret.
Yikes...I can't believe I am defending the rubbers. I feel so dirty.
On September 17th, I don't want you guys getting upset when I say "I told you so."
