So are a number of media organizations, which couldn't wait to put out 2017 preseason Top 25 lists as soon as the clock hit zero in last night's national championship.

Sports Illustrated, ESPN and FOX Sports all ranked the Trojans in the Top 5 heading into next season.

The Trojans came in at No. 2 in SI's Way-Too-Early Top 25 for one reason: QB Sam Darnold. Only Alabama sits ahead of SC on the list.

ESPN, which put USC at No. 3 on its list, also noted that Darnold and at least five other returning starters on offense would lead the way next season, while recognizing that USC's nonconference slate (Western Michigan, Texas, Notre Dame) is one of the toughest in the nation.

FOX Sports slotted the Trojans at No. 4, behind Alabama, Ohio State and Clemson. FOX stressed the importance of replacing senior tackles Zach Banner and Chad Wheeler to protect "Heisman favorite" Darnold.
