I know USC reloads and doesn't rebuild but they lost some serious talent last year. I don't think it will be USC IMO. Not enough experience.

We did lose some serious talent, but we have 7 returning starters on D that include:

Taylor Mays, Kevin Ellison, Cary Harris, Rey Maualuga, Brian Cushing, Kyle Moore and Fili Moala. I do think that sophmore (and new starter) Everson Griffen is going to be a serious pass rushing threat and I would not be surprised to see him make the AA team his first year.

We lost a ton of talent on offense and I really was sad when Chilo Rachal decided to enter the draft. I think that the offense will surprise some people though, we've got a ton of talent in the backfield with more experienced WRs and IMO Mark Sanchez is going to turn some heads. My biggest concern is the OL with only two returning starters in Kris O'Dowd & Jeff Byers. The talent on the OL is there, it's just a matter of how fast they can gel.
