Really impressive season for the Trojans. I'd give them. Jew than a fair shot at beating Cal. I had thought this team needed to go 9-9 In The PAC and could go 10-8. A 3-1 start would go a long way toward that. Also. If 20 wins is a benchmark for the tourney out of a conference like the pac12 then USC is getting very close. Means anything beyond that is playing for seeding. And. Mind you. All of this is happening with no boatwright. So USC is surviving his absence. He's been out about 3-4 weeks and I imagine will be out a couple more.
