Anticipation Abounds

Hey! Some football news!! has an interesting look at the Pac-10 and the potential position controversies that will surely take place.

USC Trojans
Spring practice starts: March 25
Spring game: April 19

What to watch:

  • The nation's most interesting quarterback race will play out for Pete Carroll during the spring as junior Mark Sanchez and Arkansas transfer Mitch Mustain will battle to replace John David Booty. Don't be surprised if redshirt freshman Aaron Corp gets a long look, too.
  • The most crowded position to watch will be a running back where Joe McKnight, Allen Bradford and Stafon Johnson already are entrenched and C.J. Gable will be coming off a groin injury. Throw in redshirt freshmen Broderick Green and Marc Tyler for good measure in another deep Trojan backfield.
  • The Trojans are loaded with defensive talent, but need to find replacements for DE Lawrence Jackson and NT Sedrick Ellis. Christian Tupou and Averell Spicer will be among the challengers for those positions.

It will be most interesting no doubt. But that is what Pete does, put guys in position to compete for the spot.

Of course we will have some more in depth thoughts on these positions as spring ball gets closer.
