Editorial Reviews

This DVD celebrates the winning tradition of the USC Trojans, from the four championships of the Howard Jones era through the John McKay and John Robinson eras to their back-to-back national championship runs in 2003 and 2004 with coach Pete Carroll. The DVD, packed with interviews from the most memorable players and coaches in USC history, also boasts bonus features on the six Heisman winners.

DVD Features:
Featurette:THE HEISMAN CLUB Only Notre Dame has a larger stable of Heisman Trophy winners than USC, one more than the Trojans perfect half dozen. The first four winners were all great tailbacks starting with Mike Garrett in 1965. O.J. Simpson followed suite three years later. John Robinson coached the next two immortal backs, Charles White (1979) and Marcus Allen (1981). During the Pete Carroll era, a couple of quarterbacks cracked the prestigious all backs club, Carson Palmer in 2002 and Matt Leinart
Interviews:Interviews include Mike Garrett, Charles White, Marcus Allen, Carson Palmer, Matt Leinart, John Robinson, Pete Carroll and others
Outtakes:The cutting room floor - a compilation of the best interview clips that were left on the cutting room floor

I absolutely enjoyed watching this DVD. I don't know enough about football nor the history of the Trojans and this documentary was still very interesting to me. My husband being a hardcore Trojans, he knew pretty much everything that was in this DVD but he was glued. A wonderful collection to his Trojans collection. Highly recommended.

This DVD wastes no hype, describing USC football as a religious experience. In describing Pete Carroll's hiring, narrator Roger Springfield says that USC was "delivered" from a wilderness period by "the Second Coming of McKay," Pete Carroll.

It has good featrures, like interviews with Marcus Allen and Craig Fertig, and reveals a death threat against Coach McKay in 1975, but as much fun as it is for Trojan alums, I recommend TROJAN VIDEO GOLD, narrated by Tom Kelly for SC's 100th anniversary in 1988. Kelly is the true voice of SC!

That one was just a little more true to the old days, in my view, but this is still great stuff!

Fight On!

As an alum I couldnt wait to get this video as soon as it came out. It was entertaining as an overview of the history of 'SC football, but left me hungry for more. Especially more highlights of Marcus Allen, OJ, and the other Heisman winners. Also, some more dwell time on the greatest games vs Notre Dame, UCLA, and the Rose Bowls. Wish it had been a 2-disc set more along the lines of the NFL Films history series now out.
