Off Campus: A Big Victory

I hate to be one to jump on bandwagons of hot teams. I have always supported and been loyal to my roots and initial thoughts. Heck, I used to be an Indianapolis Colts season ticket holder when Jef George was the starting quarterback ... and I am still a Colts fan. For the past couple of years I have been picking UCLA to win it all, and while I think this edition of Bruin golf may be the best, I am leaning towards cross-town rival USC as my favorite. The Trojans are certainly doing their best to make me change my mind with a victory today at the U.S. Collegiate Championship - a 15-team field that included eight of the top 10 teams in the Golfweek/Sagarin College Rankings. While there’s no doubt Alabama will be the No. 1 team in the country when the rankings are updated next week, and deservingly so ... USC may be the best pick at Purdue later this spring. - Lance
