I think this is good because a top 10 ranking means that our program has arrived and people are starting to respect us, but it is also means that we can surprise some people since we don't have the "target on our back" that the #1 team will have.

Great news. With Carrol leading the charge in our soon to be preseason ranked #1 football team and now a top-10 basketball team. This will prove to be a special year at USC. Too bad UCLA can't say the same thing. The only list they are coming out #1 in is Pete Carrol's shit list. And let me tell you, thats a fuckin list I don't wanna be on. See: 66-19 in December of 2005 at the Coliseum.

They're also on Rey Maualuga's shit list. He looks like Bobby Boucher on the practice field, picturing Patrick Cowan's face on everyone.
