Thursday Hot Links

USC Football

  • In case you missed it, Mark Sanchez was named starting quarterback. I relegated this to Hot Links because it wasn’t exactly news to anybody except Mitch Mustain. That’s no
    knock against Mitch — he needs to keep that mentality all the way into
    the fall to keep competing and trying to pass Sanchez for the starting
    job. Ultimately, the first game is a long way away.
  • Now that the quarterback race has cooled off, time to focus on the really interesting logjam: tailbacks.
  • Sunday Morning QB’s "Absurdly Premature Assessment" series has tackled USC’s first opponent: Virginia.
  • The U.S. Army All-America Bowl is up to four USC commits.

Bobak emailed us some interesting admission stats from this year:

  • UCLA (4/14/08): "the university was able to admit 22.7 percent of all
    those who applied, compared with 23.6 percent last year."
  • USC (03/28/08): "21.0 percent were accepted this year, compared to 24.8
    percent in 2007."
  • So it’s official … USC now has a lower admission rate than UCLA. But 15 years ago, USC admitted a whopping 70% of applicants.
