USC received four points and finished 36th in both the final AP Top 25 and coaches’ polls.
Does that sound like a good return on the vaunted recruiting class, especially when Onyeka Okongwu lived up to expectations and was one of the best players in the nation?
The recruiting class was always the excuse fans gave me for keeping Andy Enfield last year.
Here’s another way to look at it: East Tennessee State finished ahead of USC in both polls. Remember that when people tell how USC was a team to watch heading into the NCAA Tournament. Or that Enfield had a good season.
