    Re: Pete Carrol Greedy? USC recruiting #1 classes backfiring

    I read that article too, and I don't think there's much to it. Obviously, if USC would quit losing to crappy teams like Stanford and Oregon State every year, then they wouldn't have to worry about the strength of schedule in the Pac-10.

    Let's see - Top 10 team every year, BCS bowl every year, always in the running for the national championship game every year - something tells me that their #1 recruiting classes AREN'T backfiring...

    That's what I was thinking...

    They contend for a national title almost every year and on their "down" years they still win BCS games. What an epic fail those great recruiting classes have been.

    The only time i'm pulling for USC is when they play a Big 10 team...They have a monopoly in the Pac-10...

    Re: Pete Carrol Greedy? USC recruiting #1 classes backfiring

    Just like anything that seems to be going too good, it will correct itself... Skippy will start to get some recruits, Erickson will graba a few, even Harbaugh might take a few talented smart kids... The Pac 10 will even out in the next few years. Guys aren't going to want to compete with 5 other 5 star guys for play time when they can go somewhere else and play...

    Ditto that.

    I didn't even read the article because it must be total idiocy if they are implying that the top recruiting classes that SC gets are hurting their program...what lunacy.

    The reality is that the only team that usually beats SC is SC...by not really "showing up" for a game or two nearly every year.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    I wish Iowa States would backfire like USC's classes have.

    Re: Pete Carrol Greedy? USC recruiting #1 classes backfiring

    For as much as people think USCs depth could be a hinderance in recruiting thier track record of playing freshmen and sophmores kind of de-bunks that idea. USC has a unique practice on wednesdays 11 on 11 in full pads first string O and D. The players that perform the best get to start, that includes freshman. They recruit a specific type of athlete and the culture on the team fosters the level of competitivness within the teams that attracts recruits with and overdeveloped sense of competition. These also happen to be 4 and 5 star recruits typically. I don't think USC is in any danger of lossing any major recruiting wars. Granted they may have a harder time pulling kids our of Florida and Jersey but they still have pick of the litter in the southwest.

    Oh and having people like Will Farrell and Snoop Dogg show up at the open practices does not hurt when trying to attract kids to play for you.

    What would he have done with adrian petersen. was having reggie bush and lendale white not enough. I find it depressing that their third string qb is a 5 star recruit

    Re: Pete Carrol Greedy? USC recruiting #1 classes backfiring

    I guess I don't get it. Backfiring all the way to only #7 in the nation. When was the last time USC wasn't ranked top 25?

    I couldn't imagine having this guy's job. Drop below #2 and they're writing articles about how your awesome recruiting is so awesome that it's bad. Is this opposite day?

    Re: Pete Carrol Greedy? USC recruiting #1 classes backfiring

    What a dumb article. The Pac-10 has been doing fine. If some great player wants to go to USC and sit on the bench, that's their choice. There are plenty of good players for Oregon State, Cal, etc.
