Corp Fallout

When looking at Aaron Corp’s injury, it’s worth remembering that Mark Sanchez missed a large chunk of training camp last year and started the Virginia game with no problems.
USC opens with San Jose State this year and not Virginia, so it really doesn’t matter who plays quarterback. The difference is that Matt Barkley will get so much work for the next week or two, there will be a strong temptation to give him playing time in the season opener.
Especially if USC thinks it might need its top two quarterbacks to have game experience going into the Ohio State game.
Ultimately, the beneficiary of Wednesday’s events is probably Lakewood quarterback Jesse Scroggins because the chances of Barkley redshirting this season just decreased.
