Countdown to 2008 Kickoff: 11 Days

We are only 11 days away from kicking off the 2008 college football season. This brings us to none other than former All-World USC QB, Matt Leinart.

An undisputed winner in the college ranks, Leinart posted an obscene 37-2 record as a starter. Leinart was the 2004 Heisman Trophy winner, a two-time National Champion, an Orange Bowl MVP, a Rose Bowl MVP, a Walter Camp Award winner, a Unitas Award winner, and provided us with some of the greatest plays in Trojan history, the 4th and 9 against Notre Dame and of course, the "Bush Push."

I really miss having Matt Leinart in command of our once proud and feared offense. Ever since Leinart's first career pass went for a touchdown against Auburn, he always brought a sense of confidence to the huddle. His audibles probably saved us countless times from Lane Kiffin's awful play calling. Leinart possessed that winning mentality that Booty never conveyed in the huddle.

Leinart always knew how to party too. With an entourage that included the infamous "Bron" and Nich Lachey, Leinart lived the life at SC. Even after leaving college, #11 was still the life of the party, as seen below...

We tip our hat to Matt Leinart, who should start for the Arizona Cardinals this season. Thank you for all the memories you provided for USC. Good luck raising baby Cole and be sure to host a another beer-bong soiree.

Fight On!
