I am a graduate of USC and a huge supporter of their football program. I am proud of the fact that my school has produced more 1st round picks that any other college program and I believe they have the most players to play in the Superbowl and have placed a player in all but 5. There are more Trojans on NFL rosters than any other school as well. The fan in me loves it when former Trojans excel in the NFL whether it was college stars like Troy Polamalu and Reggie Bush or more under the radar guys like Ryan Kalil and Mike Patterson.
The collector in me has some mixed feelings on Trojans doing well in the pros. When Reggie Bush was drafted, the price of his cards were out of control, I was limited to getting an auto from Sage and Press Pass releases as the more mainstream products were out of range. So when a good or great college player doesn't do well, there is a part of me that is excited as I get to pick up great looking football cards like these of my former college favorites:
I can't ever fathom rooting against former Trojans to do well to enhance my collection but there sure is a fringe benefit.
