USC Football Drops New ‘City Of Champions’ Hype Video And Snubs A Notable Team

  • The USC Trojans appear to be BACK even if they haven’t taken the field yet to prove it
  • The city of Los Angeles is home to some of the most successful teams in pro sports history and this hype video pays homage to MOST of those teams

Did y’all hear that the USC Trojans are back? It’s true. They told us so. Lincoln Riley hasn’t even coached his first game at USC yet but already the hype surrounding his Trojans has reached a fever pitch in the offseason ever since Caleb Williams arrived in the City of Angels.

It remains to be seen if the USC Trojans will live up to the hype (they’ve created) next season but College Football is better when they’re good, in my humble opinion. I’m all for seeing the Trojans bring some excitement back to the Coliseum.

But before we get ahead of ourselves let’s check out their latest hype video

USC Football Drops New ‘City Of Champions’ Hype Video

If we’re talking about championships how do they leave out the LA Kings? The Kings have won TWO Stanley Cups in the past decade. Not a single one of these NHL teams has ever won a Stanley Cup and LA has two: Arizona Coyotes, Buffalo Sabres, Columbus Blue Jackets, Florida Panthers, Minnesota Wild, Nashville Predators, Ottawa Senators, San Jose Sharks, Vancouver Canucks, Vegas Golden Knights, and Winnipeg Jets.

At the end of the day, comparing two Stanley Cups to the USC Football’s 11 National Championships, the Dodgers’ 7 World Series titles, or the Lakers’ 17 championships isn’t right. But this video calls out the Rams who have won a single Super Bowl in LA while the Kings won 2 titles. It just feels wrong to me.

Did you notice they said SIX Heisman Winners???

It’s also worth pointing out that they listed SIX Heisman winners throughout USC Football’s history. As everyone knows, the true number is seven. They just aren’t counting Reggie Bush which plenty of USC fans on Twitter pointed out:

Now that the era of NIL is upon us let’s stop acting like Reggie Bush didn’t win the award. Yes, he broke the rules. But compare that to marijuana legalization nationwide whereas it gets legalized some criminal records have been expunged. The rules have changed, let’s stop acting like Reggie didn’t win that trophy for USC.

How good will USC Football be next season?

At this point, it really is unclear how good the Trojans will be in Lincoln Riley’s first season at USC. We know for certain the team will get better with the hype training coming to town but the Trojans are coming off a 4-8 season last year.

And a quick perusal of ‘way too early rankings’ across the Internet has taught me that nobody is willing to rank USC before the season. USC is named a lot in opening paragraphs of ‘way too early rankings’ articles but not a single one I came across had the Trojans actually ranked.
