Yes, freshman tailback Ty Isaac got one carry for four yards. So apparently he will not be redshirting. An interesting move to insert him into the game with Silas Redd coming back. Hopefully this isn’t a repeat of George Farmer losing his redshirt year in 2011.
Here’s my analysis on a rather pathetic offensive performance in Hawaii that relied on the defense to avoid being really embarassing. And few answers from Lane Kiffin. Link here
USC coach Lane Kiffin said after tonight’s game he does not know if he will play both quarterbacks or who will start next week.
“Obviously, it’s a big question,” Kiffin said.
I’m not sure he could do anything but play both again next week especially after Max Wittek did well enough to warrant another chance.
Did you ever think the performance would be this underwhelming? Seriously? It was Hawaii after all. The defense did fine, as expected. But what was the deal with the offense? This is Lane Kiffin’s area of expertise. Maybe that explains everything.
Post your thoughts here.
Lots of factors obviously go into evaluating this game but I give Max Wittek the slight edge at quarterback simply because his ball is lively and put more pressure on defense tonight.
OK, I forgot the most positive aspect of game. No more of those weird formations on extra points.
Hawaii is experience the same problems as USC tonight: Poor offensive line. Inconsistent quarterback and wide receiver play. But they have an excuse: They are Hawaii.
Can you imagine the deep thought at halftime: “Cody will play one series and then Max will go in. Brilliant!”
The Heisman Trophy candidate has three catches for 27 yards. Lane Kiffin is doing a much better job taking him out of the game then Hawaii. Lee might have been right when he said he would catch less passes this season.
