How in the hell did Matt Barkley and CO. struggle so much in practice against the USC’s #1 D? Please rate in Euros:
1. They were playing touch football
2. USC’s D matches up much better against USC’s O
3. Fatigue wasn’t a factor in practice
4. Hawaii’s O is just that much better than USC’s
5. No idea

Do you think Monte Kiffin’s Cover 2 defense can stop spread offenses like Oregon uses or is it only effective against pro-style offenses?
A: That is the critical question this season. I asked Kiffin about it and he said he’s faced the spread. I do remember when he went to Tennessee he flew to Los Angeles in the summer to go over defending the spread with Pete Carroll. He also believes the defense will be better by the Oregon game because it will be more experienced.
