Did Any USC Players Make AP All-American Team?

The Associated Press preseason All-American team came out today and did not have any USC players.

That is not unprecedented but you might have thought Drake Jackson could make an appearance. But the way USC used Jackson last season, he wasn’t able to produce the stats he is capable of so he didn’t have that helping him.

This is why winning/performing matters.

Here are the AP teams:

  1. Hardly any mention of any players west of Oklahoma. Some of this is due to media just not knowing anything about players outside of the SEC and the midwest. Some is due to football in the west in decline. In any case, both Drakes should be up there at end of season.

    1. Trojan1967 makes a great point. There are two PAC 12 players on the entire list. Taking this list as an indication of anything is just a STUPID comparison.

      There will plenty of standout players in the PAC that will get drafted early and will outperform many on this list.

    1. No sh*t eight-ball. I told you that 3 days ago. But you want cheap credit for posting a Chip video confirming the Toia information.

  2. Pre-season all-american lists.

    Q: What are put out in August to give college football beat-writers something to write about, but otherwise have absolutely no value whatsoever?

    1. And if there were any Trojans on the list you would be singing a different tune. You and a bunch of your fellow idiots from the athletic dept. would be here saying what a great job Helton is doing developing players.

      Give it up, you’ll have better luck defending Clueless Clay on the USC/Folt/Bohn sponsored message boards.

  3. My guess is they can’t spell team names that begin with U in their name. I didn’t see any fat freshmen from down the road listed.
    A while back I said I didn’t know any booin players.
    Owns thought I should have known kid who had spent a semester at USC before being coerced by a funny uncle to switch to Ucla. I honestly didn’t remember him until an argument arose between two blog friends over the eligibility of said player. I had to look him up. Not much there, he big and plays well, but football is an eleven man sport.

    What happened to the lb from Upland, ole what’s his name? The guy, when he hit you….he just sounded different…..allegedly.

    Kinda dropped off the map like mique Perez.

      2. All these clowns that pudly has been hyping and saying how great they would be have all turned out to be busts.

        LMFAO!

        OH MY SIDE HURTS FROM LAUGHING SO MUCH!

        AHA HA HA HA HA HA HA!

  5. Players from Cincinnati and Iowa State on all-American team. Unlike Charles Clay Helton, those coaches develop players and make them better. With a very long straw, Oregon drinks up CCH’s and Bohner’s Southern California recruiting milkshake.

  6. I told you clowns Drake Jackson was a bust.

    All it takes is a chip block from a RB and that girl Drake Jackson’s pass rush becomes about effective as a Clay Helton game plan…non-existent.
