College-football season is just around the corner. To whet your appetite, on 10 June 2008 the ultimate college-football magazine hits the news stand: Phil Steel’s 2008 College Football Preview. Go to PhilSteel.com for a preview. With the vast amount of statistics, analysis, and predictions in this magazine you will be lucky to finish it before the Big 12 championship game. That being said, what could be better than reading about the third string tackle for Bowling Green? This is a great time of year!
Two Trojans have made the cover of Steel’s magazine: Brian Cushing on the national edition and Taylor Mays on the PAC 10 edition.
It is good to see Cush getting some attention, with all the praise of late for Rey Maualuga. Not that Maualuga does not rate the accolades, he undoubtably does. He was the 2008 Rose Bowl Defensive Player of the Game. But, Cush was also the Rose Bowl Defensive Player of the Game in 2007. Cush did have an injury that kept him out for a number of games in 2007, which may account for some of the spotlight being off him.
What a great problem to have for Trojan fans: arguing about which of our outstanding linebackers should receive more praise. It is no wounder Coach Carroll predicts USC will Win Forever.
yojoe Fight On!
