USC enters the 2013 season with a lot at stake. The Trojans were embarrassed last year after starting the season at No. 1 only to finish with an embarrassing 7-6 record that was capped with a 21-7 loss to Georgia Tech in the Hyundai Sun Bowl.
This offseason, five things will be pushed by the Lane Kiffin-led staff as they attempt to guide the Trojans back into the top of the Pac-12 conference.
This USC team has the talent, but if these five items are not given attention this offseason, it will be another disappointing effort for the Trojans in 2013.
