Discuss The Game

Uchenna Nwosu, Ross Bowers

I think USC was fortunate to play Cal today. The defense was on its heels the first half, unable to play with confidence or physically. The offensive line didn’t look great the whole game. And there are still receiver questions. USC better play better at Washington State.

Pick The Score

I already made my prediction here, so now it’s your turn. With an early start, don’t wait till tomorrow. Can USC play to its level and not the level of its opponent? Make your prediction now!

Careful What You Wish For

I remember last year and even this summer hearing from people that JuJu Smith-Schuster was not having a great season or would not be missed much this season.

Does anyone still think that is the case today?

USC Quick Thought

This is worth repeating: USC offensive coordinator Tee Martin said Texas played faster against the Trojans than on films watched before the game. There’s only one problem with that: It’s not about them. It’s about you.

You think Alabama or Clemson will play faster than on film? It’s about raising the bar, not making excuses.

A USC-Cal Memory

Here’s a USC-Cal game memory: In 2011, when the game was played at AT&T Park, Lane Kiffin came up to me after his radio interview on 710-AM and joked, “I made you famous.” After being congratulated for the victory, Kiffin said on air, “Tell Scott Wolf that. He’s acting like we lost by 30.”
The truth was Kiffin and I had just talked about how USC won but many questions after the game focused on the offense’s struggles. But he showed his sense of humor on the radio.

USC Morning Buzz: If It’s Friday, It Must Be Time For Weekly Notes

OK, I made my USC-Cal game prediction, talk about why there are depth issues despite a full complement of scholarships and among other observations make this one:

USC offensive coordinator Tee Martin said Texas played faster against the Trojans than on film. There’s only one problem with that: It’s not about them. It’s about you.

Wolf: USC’s depth questionable because of coaching decisions
