USC's website overjoyed with return of Matt Barkley


It didn't take long for USC to capitalize on Matt Barkley's decision to return for his senior season. If you go to, you will see a wall of Barkley photos, as well as a link to buy tickets for next season.

"Matt Barkley and TJ McDonald have made their commitment to stay for their senior year... make your commitment to the Trojans!!" is the message on the page, and yes, they used two exclamation points. They are doubly excited!!

McDonald is USC's standout safety who announced earlier this week that he would also be returning next season.

"USC has returned to dominance... and we have reserved your seat at the Coliseum."

They also show off the home schedule, which includes Hawaii (newly led by Norm Chow), Cal, Colorado, Oregon, Arizona State and Notre Dame.

So for a $100 deposit, you can guarantee yourself a ticket to every home game in Matt Barkley's final season with the Trojans.
