Some things floating around in the wake of the upset:
Has USC really lived up to its hype in any of its first 3 games? Even the second half of the Hawaii game was not sharp.
Is this defense capable of shutting down an opponent for 4 quarters?
Can Matt Barkley complete the deep ball?
Stanford coach David Shaw proved you win college football games with defense and running the ball. When will Lane Kiffin learn this? He didn’t even run against Hawaii.
If the offensive line is going to be the scapegoat, where is freshman Max Tuerk?
Why the stubborn refusal to even kick a 30-yard FG with kickers available who made much longer field goals in high school?
