    ESPN released a quick too-early top 25 ranking for 2021 and had USC at No. 9. (It also had Liberty listed as the Eagles instead of the Flames).

    Jon Wilner released his too-early rankings and has USC at No. 23, but also said he wouldn’t be surprised by a fourth-place finish in the Pac-12 South.

    I saw the ESPN one last night. 9th seems a bit high. and I totally agree it is WAY too early. We don't even have recruiting finalized yet.

    #9? Based on what?
    That is just click-bate to get the LA market interested and talking about the rankings.

    Is that with or without Slovis? What's the report on his injury? Any word yet? If he can play how long before he gets injured again behind next year's OL and no running game?

    Our final ranking in the AP was 21. two spots ahead of Ball State! WooHoo

    That not withstanding, we absolutely should win the Pac12 next year. If we don't, it's just one more notch for Bohn.

    Typically we get a high preseason ranking if we are starting the season against a top team like Alabama so they get a win over a ranked opponent. Not sure what the deal is this year.

    It appears that confidence in Helton is very high with those who possess actual football knowledge as opposed to the whining haters on this board.

    If Helton doesn't find a running back or two before next season , that could easily happen. USC's nor gonna beat anybody with the passing game alone.

    I can't help but wonder if the ESPN writer lost a bet, and was forced to put SC in the top 10.
    I'm sure conqueerforever will chime in soon to say we are undervalued at #9.
