2007 Pac-10 Conference preview - Athlon Sports
...someone really should take a serious look into USC’s latest graduation rates. A funny thing happened on the way to commencement exercises: Almost no one from the football team showed up. Did the NCAA grant a blanket sixth year of eligibility to the older Trojans? The names and numbers of these guys have become way too familiar.

Carroll should apologize to someone. He returns 15 starters, all but one of his defensive first-teamers. How on earth did linebacker Dallas Sartz get away? The Trojans coach has more than 50 players back in the fold who have appeared in at least one game before, 31 who have started. “We have the nucleus of a very strong, successful team,” Carroll says.

No kidding...Defense is where it really gets ridiculous...A more pressing question is, can anyone score on them?...
