In my humble opinion, Cardinal & Gold thoughts on what I see, what I hear, and what I think.
• The Trojans may be gone from Pac-12 and BCS championship consideration, but not forgotten by the AP voters. The Men of Troy are No. 25 in the AP preseason poll, which gives the Pac-12 three teams in the Top 25 along with No. 3 Oregon and No. 7 Stanford.
• Two of the Trojans' new Pac-12 South Division rivals are "ranked" below the Men of Troy. ASU and Utah, both picked by some to win the South Division, are listed as "others to be considered."
Some random Cardinal and Gold thoughts, including how USC is keeping a watchful eye on what happens with Miami.
