With the spring session of practices behind it and fall on the horizon, USC football is beginning to take shape for 2013.
Having culminated the first round of practices with the exhibition game last Saturday, Trojan fans got a preview of what their team has in store for them this upcoming season. And while there was much to celebrate for fans who took in the game, also mixed in were several areas of concern that USC will take into this year's campaign.
This slideshow will look at some of the weakest positions for the 2013 version of the men of Troy and will reflect those areas that will require the most attention.
If Lane Kiffin and his staff can adequately address these questions, this year can be successful and remove the stain of the failed expectations of 2012.
If not, it could be a very long year for those who follow the Cardinal and Gold.
Note: Rankings list is based on positions that are either short of depth, experience or quality of the player himself.
