The Stanford Cardinal end the USC Trojans reign; and why the Pac-10 is the best conference in college football
USC’S REIGN AT THE TOP IS OVER – FOR NOW
Ding Dong’ the merry-oh, sing it high, sing it low.
Let them know
The Wicked Witch is dead!
For some reason, this song was running through my head as I watched Stanford pummel USC.
For Trojans fans, it has been a fantastic ride for the last seven years. So fantastic, in fact, that Trojan fans are completely guilty of taking it for granted. Every single one of them (myself, included).
Virtually every hiccup along the way has cost USC a trip to the National Championship, which in turn turned the Rose Bowl into a consolation prize of sorts. USC fans are always disappointed to “only” win the Pac-10 and “only” go to the Rose Bowl.
And that’s one of the reasons why fans around the conference have hated the USC Trojans and their fans for the better part of a decade now, and as Stanford drove the final nail into the coffin that Washington had opened and Oregon had closed, there is plenty of reason for the rest of the conference to celebrate.
A friend of mine asked me, “Dave, you know your Pac-10; Is USC done for? I mean, I know they are this season, but are they done for good?”
I’m surprised at how many people are living in the moment so badly that they are actually asking this question. NO, USC isn’t done for good. They still have one of the best coaches in the country and a never-ending stable of 4 and 5-star talent. They will be a serious contender for the Pac-10 title next year, as well as the years to come.
The beauty, though, is that they won’t be the only serious contender. 2009 will not mark the beginning of the end of USC as a football power; but it will mark the end of their stranglehold over the rest of the conference.

The whole three hour and 30 minute event can be seen here, if you didn’t have the chance to see it live and you have a bit of extra time on your hands. In case you just want to see a particular team or two’s section, we’ve provided a time code to help you out;

Pac-10.org has put up detailed quotes from each coach’s 15 minutes of Media Day fame. ESPN’s Ted Miller took some quick blurbs yesterday as each coach took the mic, summing up the jist of each coach’s key points.
These are the two places I’d suggest getting your quote fix.
Arizona – Pac-10.org – Ted Miller
Arizona State – Pac-10.org – Ted Miller
California – Pac-10.org – Ted Miller
Oregon – Pac-10.org – Ted Miller
