2004 USC preview: Defense

This unit has a chance to be one of the best in college football this year with a talented group at linebacker, a pair of honors candidates up front and an experienced group in the secondary. Pete Carroll returns to call the shots on defense and in his three years at USC it's been made clear that his defensive mind is at another level as it relates to the college game.

2003 USC preview: Defensive backs

It says something when the secondary loses three players to the NFL and yet has a chance to improve this season. With Pete Carroll in charge the Trojan defensive backfield is always going to be in good shape and this year we should start to see a bigger and more aggressive unit that will be plenty deep if we can stay injury free. Of course, we saw over the past few years with injuries that a team can't have too many DB's and it's a benefit that we've got a lot of guys who can flat out play.
