Tony Boselli was just inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, making it now 14 former USC football players in the Hall.

That's the most out of any school in the country, which is why USC has declared themselves as 'Gold Jacket U.' It's not debatable at this point.

Anthony Munoz, Marcus Allen, Boselli, Lynn Swann, O.J. Simpson, Ronnie Lott, Troy Polamalu, Junior Seau, Willie Wood, Bruce Matthews, Frank Gifford, Ron Yary, Ron Mix, and Morris "Red" Badgro are the 14 guys. There's a lot of greatness here. With SC being both top two in NFL Draft picks and top two in first round NFL Draft picks, them being No. 1 in Hall of Fame players puts them over the top as the best NFL program in football.

Tony Boselli had just as amazing of an NFL career as he had with USC football.

Tony Boselli was a back-to-back-to-back First-Team All-American with USC football from 1992 to 1994. Winning the Morris Trophy in 1994 (best O-Lineman in the conference), he was a stud for the Trojans.

He was just as good in the NFL, too. Going second overall to the Jaguars, he undoubtedly lived up to the hype. From 1996 to 2000, he went to five consecutive Pro Bowls.

He was named First-Team All-Pro three straight years from 1997 to 1999, being at the top of the game for a long time. The only blemish on his record was that he played just seven years. The Hall has started being more open to players with shorter careers, however, so they had to make sure they had a spot for Boselli.

Spending his whole career with Jacksonville, his teams went to the playoffs four times and all the way up to the AFC Championship Game twice. Boselli was remarkable, and remarkable for a while. He belongs in the Hall with his 13 other USC brothers.
