    Are talked about as being in the mix in the NC hunt for 2012.

    No freaking way.

    Too thin.

    They will wear down and be lucky to finish 9-4.

    Oregon should be the favs in the Pac 12, with Washington being a darkhorse.

    They have the best arguably the best QB in the country, or at least he is in the top 2 or 3. They have a tough defense and a good offense. I see them playing for the BCS Championship. The question is which SEC team gets to beat them to make it 7 in a row.

    BTW, the Trojan's best weapon is their defense. Monte Kiffin is a freakin genius of that side of the ball.

    USC needs to survive the New York College Classic against the rising Orangemen of Syracuse before worrying about the BCS championship.

    I think USC will take Syracuse by at least 2 TDs, if not more.

    I don't see many significant threats on USC's schedule besides Oregon. I think, unless they have a catastrophic injury, USC will be undefeated at the end of the season and in the BCS big game.

    USC will be favored by 17 or so against 'Cuse.

    Looking at their schedule.

    If Barkley stays healthy and the Jet lagged Trojans, (who will be looking ahead of the Orangemen taking the game for granted) survive the Meadowlands,

    Then I agree they can definitely run the table.

    USC probably has the 3 best offensive players in the country in Barkley, Woods and Lee. Adding Silas Redd , a top 5 running back, makes them ridiculous. If they stay healthy they are the best team in the country. Depth could pose a problem if injuries occur.

    And unlike many offenive powerhouses, they can play defense as well. I think they have a shot at being the first non-SEC team to win the BCS Championship since Texas won it ibn 2005.

    I agree they will be tough. I think some of those other USC teams (2008) could have won as well.

    I hate to say it,

    but I could see USC losing that Notre Dame game too if the trojans are banged up by the end of the season

    It drives me up the wall as I despise ND but they are on the rise with Kelly and still recruit incredibly well despite their mediocrity for almost a decade.
