USC Football: 3 Reasons for Optimism about the Trojans in 2019

JT Daniels has a year of experience under his belt, plenty of weapons to throw and will have a new offensive coordinator to work with
USC Football: 3 Reasons for Optimism about the Trojans in 2019

USC endured a painful year in 2018, going 5-7 and missing out on a bowl game for the first time in six seasons, but the Trojans were relying upon a true freshman quarterback and an offensive coordinator that didn’t last the entire season at his job. Though the man they hired to replace him, Kliff Kingsbury, was poached by the Arizona Cardinals before he could ever coach a game, the Trojans prove with his hire that Los Angeles is a premier destination for the nation’s best and brightest minds.

The Pac-12 probably embraced the start of a new year. The 2018 season was not especially kind to the conference, which got pummelled on the PR front before it even started for its 1-8 bowl record to conclude the '17 campaign.

Alabama has to replace two All-Americans in the trenches with Jonah Williams (LT) and Quinnen Williams (DT) headed to the NFL.

Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray declared for the draft but is still deciding between baseball and the NFL.

Ranking Every College Football National Champion Over the Last 50 Years

Clemson’s 2018 national title run was exceptional, but where do the Tigers rank with other college football champions? Every national championship team was great, but I have attempted to rank every title-winning squad over the past 50 years by asking the following questions:

 

How strong was their schedule?

Yeah, yeah, we know. The confetti angels are still fresh on the Levi’s Stadium field. The Tigers are probably still wearing their national championship hats. Hell, some Clemson fans and Alabama fans are still hung over, for vastly different reasons of course.
