[Fittipaldo] Trojans back in the fast lane again - Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
...In what can only be called a fantastic testament to the type of program coach Pete Carroll has built, the Trojans were 11-2 last season in what was called a "down year."

After its first multiple-loss season since 2002 -- think about that for a second -- USC is ready for another run at the national title with talent galore.

USC's championship teams in 2004 and '05 were known for its offensive exploits...This team will have plenty of firepower, but the defense could be the most important element...

...The Trojans held seven of their 13 opponents to 14 points or fewer.

If USC can win a third national championship in the past five years, it would put its recent achievements in a different historical light...
