Ok, let’s cut through the points and stats for a minute.
At the end of the day, USC’s offense did not make as many critical plays as needed (like last week). And its defense was utterly helpless against Oregon (like at times last week).
Why is Oregon calm, composed and efficient? It has a freshman quarterback yet never seemed nervous.
Why isn’t USC anything close to the nation’s No. 1 preseason team with 18 starters returning plus Silas Redd and Morgan Breslin.
Can Lane Kiffin lead? Can Monte Kiffin stop the spread?
