I've always wondered why USC decided to name their team after one of the most famous (and perhaps idiotic) losers in history. I mean sure Hector was cool and all, but everyone remembers Achilles from the Achaeans more. The Trojans did have pretty boy Paris, though, who stole Helen....I suppose that would be more fitting for a Hollywood school.
And their biggest claim to fame? They brought in the large wooden horse filled with their enemies who then hopped on out and killed them all and burned their city.
I would just LOVE for there to be another one of those pre-game dinners.
USC player: "We're going to go all Trojan War on those Nittany Lions!!!"
Deon Butler: "Didn't the Trojans lose that war?"
