USC quarterback Matt Barkley discussed the LSU-Alabama game and why he tweeted he was “bored” during an interview with Darren Smith of XX Sports Radio in San Diego.
“I actually got excited toward the end with Trent Richardson. For a second there, I thought the kicker was going to get MVP of the game,” Barkley said. “I just think it was something that people weren’t used to. You could definitely tell Bama had more juice from start to finish and earned that championship.”
On whether he watched the game thinking USC could be playing in it next season?
“A little bit of both. I think every USC fan thought that at one point during the game that that could be us next year. And we can say that all we want, but it doesn’t mean anything right now. We’re not really going to say much about where we think we should be or where we should end up.”
