Here’s a letter from a USC fan who attended the Sun Bowl.
“To wrap up on SC. They now have no quarterback, no defensive coordinator, and the rest of the recruiting season to pursue. They have a coach in whom the program’s fans have no faith; nor, if reports are to be believed, does he have much respect from the team he coaches.
“Picked to be number one in 2012, the team managed to lose to its most hated rivals, give another rival its longest winning streak over it (amazing that the Stanford result goes into the media guide as a major upset; that category is determined by perceptions going into the game), and fail to beat even one ranked team. SC is now outcoached on a weekly basis; SC’s fans are reduced to rooting for their opponents’ coaches to be hired away. All that would be bad enough; as if to twist the knife, the program now seems to go out of its way to embarrass itself in one way or another.”
