Despite the catastrophic endings
, USC's last 2 seasons should be termed as a success.
Despite disadvantage in recruiting(Hibi didn't name USC as prospective college. It's really hard for USC to get those #1 players), beating those star-studded STAN & UCLA convincingly during the dual season testifies to USC's strength.
USC recruited recently; Yates-Katz-Westby-Smith. I wonder how many of you recognize their names
Not the creme de la cremes, for sure, but USC WILL continuously challenge the elite teams.
Overcoming that extra hurdle, advancing to the Team final, is their next project. It won't be easy, of course..even defending the PAC 12 title will be an herculean task..
