    The mistake is thinking teams must be good to beat this version of USC.

    It is implied in the Xeet that the teams waiting for them in the B1G are going to “pick them apart” not the ones they’re entering with

    I’d love to wager on where USC finishes in the conference in 2024.

    USC probably would have finished 3rd or 4th in the B1G West this year.

    UCLA isn’t good Kal isn’t good and they struggled against both. Also next year they won’t have Williams so yeah they are going to get picked apart by more than just OSU and UM

    They'd be bottom half this year.

    USC sucks I’m not arguing that. They would beat anyone in the B1G besides the bucs, wolfs, and maybe Pedos and/or Iowa.

    How many teams are we going to have next year? 18? Yeah post Caleb Williams with a Lincoln Riley defense will definitely put them bottom half next season.

    https://fbschedules.com/2024-usc-football-schedule/

    9/1 - LSU - Neutral
    9/7 - Utah St - Home
    9/21 -Michigan - Away
    9/28 - Wisconsin - Home
    10/5 - Minnesota - Away
    10/12 - PSU - Home
    10/19 - Maryland - Away
    10/26 - Rutgers - Home
    11/2 - Washington - Away
    11/16 - Nebraska - Home
    11/23 - UCLA - Away
    11/30 - Notre Dame - Home

    Their home/away slate is extremely favorable for Y1 in the B1G. Think the other 3 Pac schools got at least one boning on the schedule for later season cold weather away games and USC didn't really get that. Still, they'll struggle to get bowl eligible next year imo.

    Will be interesting to see. I see eight wins depending on if fickel can fix things.

    Hot take: They'll lose to one or both of Maryland and Rutgers next year.

    They should try to go into the PSU game with 0 or 1 loss so that Franklin thinks they're a legit contender and shits down his leg.

    USC is going to look other worldly against the likes of Michigan State and Nebraska and then hopelessly overmatched against every team from Iowa and up

    Wrong, if major changes don't happen, we will look just as bad against Michigan State and Nebraska.
