07:17 AM ET 06.20 | For Lane Kiffin's squad, opportunity knocks loudly for Victor Blackwell. For [Blackwell], a wide receiver heading into his redshirt sophomore season for the Trojans, that means realizing what's at stake this fall -- a whole lot of opportunity waiting beyond the two projected starters. The Trojans head into the season with Marqise Lee -- the reigning Biletnikoff Award winner -- and Nelson Agholor established as the starters. There is uncertainty beyond them, though. George Farmer was positioning himself for the No. 3 receiver role in spring ball before a knee injury that will cause him to miss the 2013 season. There was also a similar injury in recent weeks to incoming freshman Steven Mitchell, which means the Trojans will enter the season with five scholarship receivers.

Or, 6-7 after losing conference champ game then 6-8 losing Bowl game to Duke. They ruled 6-7 teams could go this year.

Not thinking 6-6 is gonna do it for the PAC CG in 2013...

Just choke against my beloved Irish, thats all I'm asking of you.

They sure better hope Lee and Agholor stay healthy. If they do, and thinness of depth doesn't come into play, they could be pretty good. Big if, though.

That's what I said, pretty good if they're lucky. 4th out of 12 is pretty good IMO.

Hey, where's Ginger today? You said you would restore her to her rightful place.

I can't think of many teams that wouldn't be happy with five receivers of the caliber that the hated (by us Irish fans) Trojans usually field...!

8-5 and LK is canned. They play 13 games this season. Maybe 14 game, "IF" they get to the 12 PAC CG :-)
