    Rex Moore and his hand full of mud deserves honorable mention.

    Not on the greatest of teams but this guy played the middle position with lots of heart.
    #9 Zeke Moreno

    I just liked how he played the game.

    yep, that game against OU is one of my all time favs. Lofa was instrumental in shutting down AD. Was stoked that Lofa hit it big with the Seahawks in his limited time with them.

    USC is Linbacker U!!!

    I remember watching USC games in the late 80's and early 90's as a kid and Junior Seau was the man at the time so every kid on the schoolyard wanted to be Junior Seau on defense. RIP Tiaina Baul ''Junior'' Seau. #55

    Lofa Tatupu

    He was the man. He also gave me a high five after the '05 Orange Bowl win... and as a 13 year old, it left an impression. If we had had him against VY, we would have won that Rose Bowl.

    Matt Grootegoed would be in the mix there too.

    My friend lived in Touton at the time. He told me a story about a time during Batman's freshman year. Batman walked into my friend's room, without a word opened his little dorm fridge and looked through it. He pulled out a coke, opened it and sat on a chair and drank the coke. After he was done, he got up, said thanks and left. My friend just said "sure, no problem" as Batman left the room.

    Everyone forgetting that Sua Cravens was a LB as well (started out as a S).

    55 Junior Seau, he was the fastest and most instinctive LB I saw playing at SC.

    Groots was Troy P before Troy P, only at linebacker. Less size, but insane instincts and the best at wrapping up.

    Claiborne just dominating as all hell and a ton of fun to watch.
