Zoning out

USC was ineffective against Oregon’s zone on Thursday, but Kevin O’Neill said of the 11 possessions the Trojans drove to the basket, ten good things happened. Either USC made a shot or was fouled. Something to work on before Saturday’s Oregon State game since the Beavers likely will play zone against USC. Last year, USC lost to Oregon and Oregon State on the road.

    Let’s see, a USC Basketball coach who is befuddled by zone defense (like last year?!), a Defensive Coordinator serving on a top NCAA 1A program, the Trojans of The University of Southern California, who is confounded by the spread offense, and a former Championship baseball program fallen on hard times. Sanctions or no sanctions AD Haden, you’ve got some work to do.

    In the mean time, we’ve got Men’s Volleyball, Men’s Water polo, and possibly Men’s Tennis to fall back on. Not bad.
