The Orgy of USC Love is Starting


Do we really have to start reading and listening to all this crap again? From an article in the Washington Times which asks: Is USC's defense the "The Best Ever Assembled"?

"You watch their tapes, and you don't know whether to laugh or cry," said Dennis Erickson, beginning his first season with Arizona State after superb stints at Washington State (1987-88), Miami (1989-94) and Oregon State (1999-2002). "Their defense is like a horror film for opponents. I coached some pretty special groups at Miami, but I think USC's group this year is on another level."

Over the last two decades, three college defenses — 1992 Alabama, 2001 Miami and 2003 USC — have sent nine or more starters to the NFL. Thanks to an unprecedented three consecutive No. 1 recruiting classes, USC's current crew has equal experience, more speed and considerably more depth than any of those three.

"There is no question in my mind that USC is the best team in the country and maybe the best team in the history of college football," first-year Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh said. "They're outstanding offensively and absolutely off the charts defensively."

But of course, Stanford bows down to no one, right Coach Harbaugh?

Actually, if you read the article you can't help but think that USC's defense could present a bit of a problem to opposing offenses. Even those with a genius calling the plays.

Isn't this the same thing people were saying about USC's offense back in 2005? And we all know what the Texas defense did to them. Its all a scam
