Will the fact USC is still USC when it comes to recruiting be enough of an edge to overcome Chip Kelly at UCLA or avoid upsets vs. Kevin Sumlin at Arizona? That is my question in today’s column.
Excerpt: Anyone who watched USC squeak out victories over Texas, Utah, Arizona, UCLA or Stanford last season knows the Trojans need every talent advantage they can get. In its current form, USC probably will not beat teams of equal talent. So it needs those four-and-five star players to overcome coaching blunders.
