TroBob's Speculative Lineups for 2007, 2008, 2009



Speculative USC Lineups for 2007, 2008, 2009


It really makes it hard to project starting lineups too far into the future because so many of our players could possibly leave after three years. In the old days (pre-Carroll) that job was much simpler. There was usually a talent and experience gap that would help project starting lineups even four years out. It was always fun for me to do. In some cases, I will have two starters where we don't know about all of our recruits this year and who might be leaving early in the future.

I was playing around with this last night

If you see "or" it means that the player is a speculative verbal commit e.g., Marvin Austin or that the player could possibly leave early for the pros, e.g., Rey Maualuga or Taylor Mays.

If you see an "OR", it means that there could be a battle for the starting position.
