USC Football: Getting the bandwagon ready to roll

Lots of USC love on ESPN's College Football Live today (video linked in the post below).

SBNation's BlogPoll has USC #1 in their very early Pre-Season poll (I did not participate because I thought it way too early to get a solid snapshot of the 2012 Squad)

But more importantly, CBSSports Bruce Feldman gives the reasons as to why USC is back on everyone's radar...

From @Brentboyles why is everybody on the band wagon with USC for next year?

I can give you seven very good reasons:

1. They are led by arguably the best QB in college football who has a ton of experience, Matt Barkley.

2. They have the best 1-2 WR tandem in the country, Robert Woods and Marqise Lee.

3. They return their entire back-seven on D that includes their top tacklers who were freshmen in 2011 (Dion Bailey and Hayes Pullard) and perhaps the top two DBs in the Pac-12 in safety T.J. McDonald and CB Nickell Robey.

4. They bring back four starting O-linemen and now actually have some quality depth behind those guys.

5. They return a 1000-yard rusher, Curtis McNeal.

6. They get the two most talented teams on their schedule, Oregon and Notre Dame, in the Coliseum.

7. No team will be hungrier.

I still think it is a bit too early to be planning victory parades, but Bruce offers up some solid reasons as to why USC will be the front runner in 2012.

Gonna be a fun off season!
