Hard Knocks: Trojan Secondary

Kyle BunchSenior Analyst IMay 16, 2008

Ted Miller has a spot-on look at the entire Pac-10, it is concise and worth a read. In it he sites USC possibly owning a Firstary? He is talking about the Seconday. He is talking about Kevin Ellison, Taylor Mays, Cary Harris and Shareece Wright.

*Josh Pinkard could be in the mix as well, but we expect to see him lose a step or two from not playing for the past couple years due to injury.*

This physical crew gave up only nine touchdown passes a year ago -- the second-best total in the (Pac-10) conference was 17. This is arguably the best secondary Pete Carroll, a DB himself, has ever had. We sat next to USC's secondary coach, Rocky Seto, at the A Better LA charity event a couple weeks ago.

He spoke modestly of the group, but agreed it could be the key component to USC's defensive success. As the night wore on, and the drinks kept coming, all we could say is more CB blitzes, more CB blitzes, more CB blitzes. It really is the most exciting defensive play. And a balls out, risk everything moment that captures the spirit of recent Trojan championship teams. Breaking down the Pac-10 [ESPN]
