There are infinite reasons I am a proud Trojan alum, many of them involving football. In the four seasons during which I was an undergraduate (2002-2005) the Trojans were undefeated at home (and against both rivals Notre Dame and UCLA); won three Heisman Trophies (Carson Palmer 2002, Matt Leinart 2004, and Reggie Bush 2005); won one undisputed (2004-05) and one disputed (2003-04) national championship; and won three BCS bowl games (Orange Bowl 2003, Rose Bowl 2004, Orange Bowl/BCS Championship 2005).
Here are a few of the many fine hunks of athletic superiority who have played roles in the Trojan domination since 2002, and where they are now.
