Robey's stocks are going to be as high as it'll ever be. His height alone will keep him away from the 1st two rounds. The moment, he has assurance he can get an early 3rd round pick spot... he'll be gone.
The "degree" angle is also very overrated IMO. Tons of players come back and take classes part time to eventually earn their degree.
Robey isn't projected as a 1st or 2nd round in any of the mocks I've seen thus far.
But Keith Rivers stayed all 4 years despite getting some interest as a day 1 pick after his junior year.
Who's going and who's filling the void?
Woods, Bark, TJ, Robey, DK, Holmes, Redd, Moody, Horton all gonzo.
We going to get rolled. New guys learning our insanely difficult defense, our DB starters are still trying to figure it out. Can Wittek throw a mean bubble screen? Maybe next season will be a good one to redshirt Dawson?
With another year in the weight room I imagine that Chad Wheeler might be ready to make some noise on our O-line.
USC should have been in the NC with 1st year starters in Booty and Sanchez. Lane Kiffin doesn't even trust Barkley now. I believe it is in his nature not to trust his QB or players in general.
If I had more faith in Lane Kiffin's offense, I would say USC is likely a top-5 favorite for 2013 and 2014.
Hard to disagree with that. I hope Kiffin proves us wrong.

CB Jayron Hosley from Virginia Tech was drafted by the New York Giants this year in the 3rd round and would have gone 2nd round or even higher had it not been for major character concerns around the kid. Hosley is 5'8" and is an excellent comp for Robey.
Redd won't be gone either, he said his plan was 2 years.
AA is at Oregon BTW. just wanted to let you know. USC lost him last year because they tried to kill his brother.

The oline will return 4 starters next year with simmons/banner/wheeler/turek etc pushing for palying time. The dline is very young this year we return everyone but horton and will add vanderlous/bigelow/hatcher/fitts. The dline and oline should be better and the dbs will have another year under sanders. Again this is based on a 3 game snap shot.
Well a least did not properly take care of his medical condition.
AA stands for all american, not Arik Armstead. I'll let yiu slide since your program and fans aren't too familiar with that term. In your case, it probably stands for alcoholics anonymous.
I will be really curious to see wittek play next year. I personally think matt is scarred of the middle of the field. But we will never know till wittek/kessler start next year. It seems like matt checks out of alot of plays so who knows what plays kiffin is calling.
O shit I just spit coors light everywhere ... Well played!!!
Oh good Lord...
Wow. Just wow. Did you seriously just go there?
PREP NOT HYPE

If ever there was a reason to have a premium board, this troglodyte's statement just made my point.
And that my friends is why you need to be careful about posting on another team's board. If you can not add anything productive to THEIR conversation then stay on your own board so you don't embarrass yourself, your team, and your fanbase.
I am going to go out on a strong limb here (IMHO) and say that I see SC a strong top 5 next year (hopefully even better) with a dominant defense and a dominant offense. I strongly believe that this year's version will prove to be up to the task and finish strong, especially the o-line gelling and bringing the physical back to the trenches. Next year, the trenches will be owned by both lines and all those who think the offense needs to change because it isn't physical enough will jump back on the bandwagon - so to speak.
That is my prediction and I will stick to it and take my lumps if it doesn't come to fruition. I also don't share in the Kiffin is not up to the task side of things. I think he and his assembled staff will prove to be strong managers of personnel and winners for years to come!
Tommy, Rebel, and our newest rescue Harley!
Nickell seems like one of those guys that might stay all 4 years to get his degree, especially since he didn't redshirt and have the opportunity to get a year ahead academically and you don't know if he's one of those guys whose mother's dream was for them to get their degree. Never underestimate the mom/education centic parents factor. I'd bounce if I were him due to the reasons you stated though.
You will be better with a freshman quarterback than with the heisman front runner?
Yeah, that makes sense.
Makes as much sense as that dickweed that came over here to spew a bunch of crap about USC trying to kill Armond...
Every fan base has its group that always thinks the next version will be better. This is a USC board, so those opinions would be normal to read. Just like the ludicrous stuff posted over on your board.
Just try and keep that idiot from posting over here again, because that bullshyte was uncalled for and so beyond stupid.
Fides Quaerens Intellectum
Just like how the ducks think they have a better team than last years team with a freshman QB?
And btw both QB's next year will be a RS Sophomore.
