USC tailback Silas Redd tweeted today that he saw Dr. James Andrews, an orthpedic surgeon in Pensacola, Fla., who performs up to 50 surgeries a week and is a team doctor for Auburn, Alabama and the Washington Redskins. Obviously, Redd’s knee is not healed.
I will be on with Jim Hill shortly on KCBS Sports Central.
Time to take some post-Hawaii game questions.
Here’s an up close look at Norm Chow in pre-game and then an appearance by Lane Kiffin at the conclusion.
Here are the grades for the first game of the season:
RESULT: No. 24 USC 30, Hawaii 13
WEEK 1 GRADE: C+
Is it too late to throw Max Browne back into quarterback derby?
Lane Kiffin said USC suited up 55 scholarship players for the game last night. Get used to hearing this type of talk. Scholarship reductions will always be mentioned whenever USC plays poorly this season.
They don’t cause a wide receiver to drop a pass, a left tackle to miss a block, a right tackle to get beat for a safety or a poor play call. USC has about 70 players on scholarship. And LSU played last season with roughly the same amount. Just one game into the season, against Hawaii no less, and we already are hearing about it.
“We had a bunch of new guys at different positions,” offensive line coach Mike Summers said. “It was a learning experience. They threw the kitchen sink at them. (Marcus Martin) did some amazing things for a first-time starter.”
