Countdown to Kickoff: 90 Days

As we continue counting down the days until the 2007 season, we have chosen Hector, leader of the Trojan army, for #90 on our list, for no special reason other than his leadership, bravery, and might. These are qualities that define the 2007 USC Trojans.

We are now 90 days away from the start of a new football season, and though the summer doesn't officially begin for another couple of weeks, the summer movie season is in full swing. We've already seen Spider-man 3, Shrek the Third, and Pirates of the Carribean: At World's End hit theaters, but who can forget the blockbuster we witnessed in 2004. I'm talking about Troy. Not only was the action incredible, but it featured an all-star cast as well. In my opinion no star shined brighter than Eric Bana, who played the part of Hector.
It just jacks me up when I watch the scene in which he's rallying his troops against the Greeks as portrayed by the picture above. In it, he says...
"All my life, I've lived by a code, and the code is simple...Honor the gods, love your woman, and defend your country. Troy is Mother to us all, Fight for Her!"
Maybe the athletic department can play that clip from the movie as the Trojans run out of the tunnel.

Fight On!

yo mel kiper fan! They did that 2 years ago when the movie first came out! When was the last time you were at a game man?

I do remember that, but that's only time I remember seeing it. It should be every game. Eminem's Lose Yourself is getting a little old.
