    Sam Darnold…already anointed as the most “poised” college QB in the country.

    Join the bandwagon! It’s all happening, right now. Heisman, here we come. Make room for yet another one in HH.

    I don’t know what other sports Luck played before college, but how come these analysts aren’t using the fact that Sam was an all-around athlete – Baseball, basketball, and football. Basketball for one having a major impact on his athleticism that he can bring to the quarterback position. I know it’s documented that Sam was a stud at the sports he played, but these guys need to start backing up their theories on why he’s so athletic by mentioning more of his past. Don’t get me wrong, natural abilities carry Sam as well. Anyway, my two…

      So True 04!

    Luck Who??

    • Pasadena Trojan

      Luck is playing at Indy, which it has no O-line. I like Luck. Good head on his shoulders and hard worker. I wish him the best.

        Exactly. Put Luck with the right organization and he wins super bowls.

    Skip Bayless inferred Troy Aikman was attracted towards….

    Check out on u tube Merill Hoge’s assessment of both Johnny Manziel and Jadeveon Clowney …. Hoge called it right for both – a pair of humps….both Stephen A. Smith and Bayless were open mouthed shocked…now as to this quote by Bayless well Bayless ‘knows’ he better get something right – there is little to zilch risk in picking Darnhol but all the same Bayliss is a contemptible foul pig

    Sam, the receivers, tightends and running backs, along with this talented defense has a chance to write a story the SC fans and the world will remember for years to come. This is the year where SC legends will be born. People doubt and have so many what if’s, I believe this team is poised for greatness. Another Trojan dynasty will rise this year under coach CH. Kickoff coming soon. Fight On✌

    • 04Trojan

      Not soon enough.

      The world, Rabb?
      You have an excellent QB, D Line and running backs.
      You also have no kicker a marginal D backfield and a coach that started the wrong guy last year for three or was it four games.

      I love the optimism in Troy because it makes the fall more enjoyable.
      But really, “the world”?

      • Jethro G Sabbath

        I notice you don’t even claim your coach is better anymore. A 4-8 season will do that, huh?

    • rusoviet

      The sole reason this year’s team will be remembered, if they win out right, will be if they flop in 2018 i.e. TX 2004 – 2005

      This year’s squad is no more than the teams Sabin has coached

    • gotroy22

      This is another 2004 squad in the making!

    Thanks for posting this!

    I love it!
    It doesn’t take much for a Trojan to get a big head but with all of this pre-season hype their heads look like a practice field at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!
    It looks like they moved Mt. Rushmore to South Central.
    I love it!
