Infobox[edit]

I've made an infobox template (Template:Infobox college athletics) out of the infobox that was on this page. I've made some slight changes, such as removing the year of the foundation of the athletic program and list of athletic facilities (other than the stadium and arena). I replaced the infobox with the new template, so if anyone wants to reinsert some of that removed info elsewhere in the article, feel free to do so. -Elmer Clark 05:52, 8 September 2006 (UTC)

Move to USC Trojans[edit]

I think this ought to be moved to USC Trojans. That seems to better follow the pattern of other similar pages (e.g. Missouri Tigers, Washington Huskies, etc), and I think it makes more sense anyway. Does anyone object? -Elmer Clark 05:58, 8 September 2006 (UTC)

I've gone ahead and moved itAm going to go ahead and move it as soon as I can get the redirect that's currently there deleted since no one has come forward with any objections. -Elmer Clark 22:57, 11 September 2006 (UTC)
The redirect has been deleted. Go ahead with your move. --ZimZalaBim (talk) 00:35, 12 September 2006 (UTC)
I think it should be further moved along to Southern California Trojans. - PhilipR 05:02, 11 October 2006 (UTC)
I work at the University and see/hear 'USC Trojans' much more frequently than 'Southern California Trojans' (in fact, I don't think I've ever seen that version in use). Following Wikipedia:Naming conventions (use common names), generally the most commonly used name is chosen for the article title; I believe 'USC Trojans' fits that.

National Championships won[edit]

Does the number of national championships won by the men's and women's teams have to be mentioned twice (and in successive sections)? It seems to be a bit of overkill. I think it should be removed from the "Trojan athletic achievements" section, with more specific information included there.

The 2004 football national championship was removed in error. USC retains the Associated Press championship from that year, despite having the BCS Championship vacated.Topher (talk) 15:07, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Interlocking University of Southern California logo.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Interlocking University of Southern California logo.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

USC Trojans football stadium relocated[edit]

USC Trojans plans to relocated football stadium from Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum to Los Angeles Stadium by 2015. 71.137.233.211 (talk) 05:45, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

Women's Basketball[edit]

There is currently a AfC submission at Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/USC Trojan's women's basketball that might be the genesis of a good subsection article. If editors here could please look at it and determine if it's enough to remove the redirect and place the article there, it would be useful. Hasteur (talk) 19:21, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

Football record[edit]

Article on football must include a statement that the record does "not including 9 overall wins vacated due to NCAA penalty, including 2 vs. UCLA and 1 each vs. WSU, ARIZ, STAN, ORE, CAL, ASU, WASH (Pac-12 teams)" or "not including 14 wins and 1 loss vacated due to NCAA penalty" against all other teams, which is the requirement of the NCAA and agreed to by member USC. This is the exact language printed in its own media guide.[1]

  • Vacation of two football wins in 2004, including the BCS championship game, and all 12 wins in 2005.
  • Vacation of all basketball wins in the 2007-08 season, including the NCAA tournament (self-imposed).
  • Vacation of all wins in women's tennis between November 2006 and May 2009 (self-imposed).The NCAA's case against USC , Los Aneles Times, June 7, 2014
