Countdown to Kickoff: 66 Days

With 66 days remaining until we kickoff the 2008 season... representing #66 on our countdown is former Trojan offensive guard Chilo Rachal. Rachal played a huge role in solidifying the offensive line the past two seasons. This past April Rachal was one of seven Trojans selected in the first two rounds of the NFL Draft, going to the San Francisco 49ers in the 2nd round, 39th overall. Rachal decided to forgo his final year of eligibility at USC to help pay for his mother's medical expenses, who is suffering from a stomach tumor. USC Sports Talk wishes Rachal the best of luck in his rookie campaign and our prayers are with his family.

This season the #66 will be worn by 4-star freshmen guard Matt Meyer from Stockton, CA. Meyer, you may recall was the subject of Pete Carroll's latest April Fool's joke.

Fight On!

Are we the only ones who have noticed how Rachal looks eerily similar to Sean Kingston?
