Hard to believe but USC has the best recruiting class in the country & it's not even close............how they're selling (or buying) these kids on this declining program is baffling..............kids will be kids I guess.
Oregon might be better without Kelly. They will still run the same playbook, and if the new OC keeps it simple they may be better off.
I think Marriota is due for a classic Soph Slump, but Oregon has mroe than enough at RB to beat most teams.
Non Conference games for the next 3 years. Tennessee at home, at Nevada, and 2 games with Mich St are tough games, but the other 4 games are cupcakes..
2013 - Nicholls St, at Nevada, Tenn
2014 - Wyoming, Mich St, Open
2015 - E Wash, at Mich St, Ge St
Oregon does not play USC or Arizona St from the South which is very favorable. Playing at Stanford is a loss on paper, They could be favored in all the other games but I think they lose one or more of those game. At Washington and Arizona are not easy wins.
2014 might be Oregon's year. MAriotta is a junior, second year in coach's system, and they get Stanford at home.
