Columnist Greg Katz says the USC Trojans and their fans should hope that Oregon does not suffer a probation that includes a bowl ban this upcoming season.
Probation hasn't killed the Trojans. In fact, after its big win over Oregon Saturday, USC seems like it's just as good as ever.
AD Dave Brandon has a master plan to bolster facilities campuswide, now he just has to raise the funds to execute it.
The fall of the Trojans was swift and ugly, but there are plenty of reasons to believe the program already is climbing again.
