Do you think that Matt Barkley’s Christmas gift to the Trojans will be that he is returning for next season? Will he announce his decision on Christmas day?
A: I do not think he will announce anything before January. Right now I would say he is leaning toward turning pro.

How about Dan Monson to replace KO?
A: I’m not in favor of a coaching change. However, if one were made, why go to Long Beach State for someone who did not make it at Minnesota? I’m of the opinion that USC, which has unlimited money for coaching hires (especially with the Pac-12’s new TV deal) should hire the best candidates for its football and basketball jobs. So why not get a marquee name?
