I wonder how many people a year ago would've thought that Navy, UC Davis and Ball State would all be better than Notre Dame (along with Baylor and South Carolina) so far this year? Very Happy

The USC record reminds me of when Colorado did the same thing OOC and then got their butts handed to them in conference Laughing

That happened to SC a couple years ago, as well and is a true possibility of occurring again. I don't know why SC seems to almost always schedule a fairly easy preseason. So far they have not played a ranked opponent. Right now they have 2 weeks rest before they face Texas A&M, who will be their toughest opponent to date.

If you've seen USC, they're quite good. They've been playing a four guard lineup and Moore and Edwards have been outstanding as has Simon. The main thing is that Trakh has been giving all the minutes to six players so who knows how they'll finish up.

I would not be surprised if they ended up in the 6-7 spot of the Pac.

I’ve not watched USC, but I really liked Mariya Moore at Louisville. She was a very underrated player.

I agree. SC is a solid team. Better coach now. I see them as high as 5 in the conference.

I'm not sure I see SC finishing above Cal or ASU. Assuming they also finish behind UCLA, Oregon, OSU and Stanford, that puts the Trojans no higher than 7th in the Pac this season. But I could be wrong! Frequently am!

Cal and ASU to me are question marks as well. And Stanford for that matter. Just my opinion but I could be wrong.

At this point in the season undefeated might mean good team or bad schedule. To clarify I am adding a best win and toughest remaining non-conference game this year for each team.


New Mexico 9-0 (best win: Marquette, toughest game: @Oklahoma)
Florida St 8-0 (best win: Iowa, toughest game: @Texas)
Louisville 8-0 (best win: Ohio St, toughest game: @Kentucky)
Mississippi St 8-0 (best win: Green Bay, toughest game: Oregon)
Navy 8-0 (best win: St. Bonaventure, toughest game:@New Mexico)
Southern California 8-0 (best win: Purdue, toughest game: Texas A&M)
Syracuse 8-0 (best win: Syracuse, toughest game: Mississippi St)
Tennessee 8-0 (best win: Marquette, toughest game: Texas)
Connecticut 7-0 (best win: Notre Dame, toughest game: @DePaul)
Kansas 7-0 (best win: Arkansas, toughest game: @St John's)
Texas 7-0 (best win: Georgia, toughest game: @Tennessee)
UC Davis 7-0 (best win: St Mary's, toughest game: @Oregon St.)
Villanova 7-0 (best win: Duke, toughest game: Temple)
West Virginia 7-0 (best win: Texas A&M, Toughest game: Pittsburgh)
Ball St 7-0 (best win: Purdue, toughest game: Western Kentucky)

Based on the schedules I expect that this list will be cut roughly in half by the end of the year.

You might already know this, but just in case you do not ---the Moore playing for USC now is Mariya's younger sister. The Louisville transfer, Mariya has to sit out this year and won't be eligible till next year. I guess she didn't make a hardship appeal like Shepard did.

Which, if any, of these teams (besides UConn) have a realistic shot of an undefeated season, bearing in mind that some of them have their toughest OOC games in Jan.? Villanova? Ball State? The winner of Sunday's Navy-New Mexico game?

It's still a bit early for rankings to be very accurate, but Massey gives Mississippi State the best shot by far (though realistic is likely quite a stretch even for them).

(--UCONN 45.2%)
Mississippi State 5.5%
Florida State 0.9%
Louisville 0.3%
UC Davis 0.3%
Ball State 0.3%
Navy 0.3%
Texas 0.2%
New Mexico 0.1%
Villanova 0.07%
West Virginia 0.03%
Syracuse 0.01%
USC 0.00...%
Kansas 0.00...%

I don't see Miss St getting through the SEC unscathed, plus they're playing Oregon next week.

Id say Tennessee's toughest remaining OOC opponent is looking to be Notre Dame , along with UCONN's being South Carolina.

I agree. USC shouldn't have pushed him out previously.

It's easy to miss the OOC games that are played during the conference season. UConn has two tough ones in early 2018, Louisville and South Carolina.

My reference was to conference games this year and I made that point specifically to not include games after January 1. The reason I was using that distinction was to look at which teams would likely be going into their conference season undefeated. Sorry for the confusion.

Actually, I meant that as a joke, I'm glad you noticed. They haven't played a remotely difficult game. You choose between Wisconsin (5-4), Northwestern (5-4), Vanderbilt (3-6) or @George Washington (3-5). By play their toughest game was Stony Brook who took them to overtime. All of which is to say I doubt they will be on this list once they play Mississippi St, and they may not even make it past Drexel.

I really thought Ball State would be 0-6 after Sallee's ego cost them their last three games last season and losing Bennett to graduation and the Spaniards. Maybe he has learned to step back.

To be fair, to the current USC coach, Mark Trakh, very good chance that most, if not all, of the current schedule was made by CCD and not Trakh.

USC plays 6 players who contribute points rebounds assists, etc. They play 3 others nominal minutes to give others a rest, The team has responded well to Trakh. I dont see them beating UCLA, UO or OSU, well maybe OSU one game. I can see them beating, or losing any of the other Pac12 teams, As of today 3 Pac12 teams are in tournament, and question marks on any other team.

Any chance we can distinguish between the two teams who both go by "USC". Growing up in LA, 5 miles from one of them, there is only one true USC (Fight on Trojans!). But some in the southeast might beg to differ. But, can we ALL agree that the school in SOUTH Carolina is not called "Carolina" by anybody? (except some ignorant broadcasters). I'm a Duke fan in Durham NC, but there is only one school called Carolina and it's 8 miles down Tobacco Road from here.

Getting back to "USC" I suggest one is USC and the other is U of S.Carolina.

Thank God you said this, because this drives me crazy. SCar works for me as an abbreviation for the SEC school.

Yeah, that's what I use too.

The one in LA is USC, or frequently just SC when communicating with USC fans or alums.

So far they have not played a ranked opponent. Right now they have 2 weeks rest before they face Texas A&M, who will be their toughest opponent to date.


To be fair, to the current USC coach, Mark Trakh, very good chance that most, if not all, of the current schedule was made by CCD and not Trakh.

USC plays 6 players who contribute points rebounds assists, etc. They play 3 others nominal minutes to give others a rest, The team has responded well to Trakh. I dont see them beating UCLA, UO or OSU, well maybe OSU one game. I can see them beating, or losing any of the other Pac12 teams, As of today 3 Pac12 teams are in tournament, and question marks on any other team.


Any chance we can distinguish between the two teams who both go by "USC". Growing up in LA, 5 miles from one of them, there is only one true USC (Fight on Trojans!). But some in the southeast might beg to differ. But, can we ALL agree that the school in SOUTH Carolina is not called "Carolina" by anybody? (except some ignorant broadcasters). I'm a Duke fan in Durham NC, but there is only one school called Carolina and it's 8 miles down Tobacco Road from here.

Getting back to "USC" I suggest one is USC and the other is U of S.Carolina.


Me too, Scar works for me too.


ESPN reduces all college teams to 4 letters or less which sometimes creates a good guessing games for the smallest and newest of the DI BBall teams. They use USC for Southern California and SC for South Carolina. Kind of surprising that USC stayed undefeated longer than SC.

Not really if you look at the differences in OOC SOS.

USC's OOC SOS is 98th (Massey) and 204th (Sagarin).

SC's SOS is 3rd (Massey) and 35th (Sagarin).

SC lost to #2 Notre Dame, whereas USC's highest ranked opponent is #53 Purdue.

Back in the "Usenet Newsgroup" days, some on the rec.sports.football.college used this convention:

USC was South Carolina. U$C was Southern Cal. FSU was Fresno St. F$U was Florida State.

And of course, if you were talking about that state school in Ohio, it was tOSU, for THE Ohio State University... Wink

At least two undefeateds will go down tomorrow. Texas plays Tennessee and Navy plays New Mexico.

The two other potential upsets are Villanova travelling across town to take on Temple and Arizona St is playing at Florida St. Should be an interesting day.

Texas and Navy fall to drop the Undefeated left to 12. Best chances to drop this number this week are Mississippi St(Oregon), USC(Texas A&M) and New Mexico(@Oklahoma).

Another one bites the dust. Texas beats Florida St to cut the undefeateds to single digits. Mow we'll see if Louisville can get by Kentucky.
