Stanford loses Luck (and we'll probably get to see a better representation of their new coach's ability). Oregon loses Darron Thomas and L.

    Games they could lose off the top of my head...

    Washington
    Oregon
    Notre Dame (will more than likely be an underdog against ND)
    Arizona State
    California
    Stanford

    And we will see who else they play OOC next year.

    Let me just put it this way, it is not a forgone conclusion that USC will run the gauntlet next year, IMO it is very unlikely.

    Certainly, even the best teams often don't go undefeated, but I only spot 1-2 teams on that list that seem at all threatening to USC. USC's talent has never really dipped, and other PAC 12 teams are losing stars this year.

    Hawaii is another OOC foe of theirs, I know.

    Contrary to what you'll hear from some USCw fans, the brunt of the NZAA sanctions is yet to come.

    I believe Kiffin helped sell him on his decision to stay, but Barkely said a couple of weeks ago that his decision would be "all about him" and I think it is.
    It's all about him campaigning for a heisman and Kiffen campaigning for a BCS championship.

    Barkely was projected as the second QB in the draft. He can't improve his draft status too much, but it can certainly go down with a bad year or injury.

    Like said above, 2012 is when the sanctions really start to make a difference.

    Well, let's just assign the Heisman to him now, because he's gonna be pimped for it all offseason and next season by the media.

    FYI, that's not a slam on him. It's more of a slam on the media.

    Good for him. Ive seen some stuff and heard him on the Dan Patrick show saying it was always his childhood dream to be the QB at USC. The NFL will be there, go have fun one more year in the greatest sport in the world. I dont understand people bashing him for this decision. I think a lot of times we as a fanbase dont think about a kid that grew up loving another school. If this were one of our own that grew up watching footage of all the great Bama QBs and was a sure fire 1st round pick, but when it came down to it, said he wanted to come back to try to win a NC, he would be loved to death. Good for ya Barkley, good for you.

    Not to derail the thread but after seeing your name it's got me wanting some oysters LOL used to be a great place we used to go with my grandfather and dad in chancellor called Judge's wonder if it's still around.

    Back on topic I remember earlier in the year before a game they where showing old films of him dressed in a USC helmet and later in his child again saying he was going to be the starting QB for USC .. so it probably was.
    Hey Daddy why doesn't Auburn have a number beside their name? 5 year old son during the iron bowl.

    That happens every year, but when was the last time that player actually won? Reggie Bush in 2005?

    I agree with you. Barkley was going to be the second quarterback chosen. I also believe he would have been a top 10. He has an opportunity to earn enough money to take care of himself for the rest of his life. He also has the potential to destroy a shoulder by playing in one more game.....collegiate or professional.

    In fact, I would not be the least bit surprised if he reverses his decision and comes out for the draft this year.

    I also think Lane Kiffin is the main influence on MB deciding to stay. We all know that it's all about CLK and he could care less about the players. I think he should go pro because. Ask Sam Bradford.

    I was thinking 3rd maybe 4th qb taken Moore and Luck will go first then maybe Keenum/Barkley you also have to factor in Darron Thomas to some degree who should go behind any of the QB's mentioned already. There's going to be a good QB selection this year with potential for 2 or more franchise QB's.

    Moore before Barkely? Seriously?
    I wouldn't be surprised if Moore doesn't even get drafted.

    I don't have a problem with MB playing another year. He is fortunate enough to be from a family where money isn't a problem.
    I don't like his arrogant, self-centered, prima donna attitude.

    Kellen Moore is projected to be a 5th round or later draft choice. Guy has an extremely weak arm, doesn't play from under center, etc etc.

    Moore getting drafted, as Russtang said is no given!
