Final Thoughts

Rule No. 1 if you coach at USC: Beat the archrivals. The playcalling against Notre Dame and UCLA was too conservative. But what happened to USC’s boundless energy during the Coach O era? Maybe too high for the game judging from that entrance by Willie McGinest.

It’s a bittersweet regular-season finale because Orgeron certainly could have been the popular choice had he won tonight. Remember Vanderbilt coach James Franklin is 15-4 in his past 19 games. Only Alabama is better in SEC.

Halftime Thoughts

Did USC come out too fired up for the game? Or were the Trojans just not ready to handle the Bruins like they did Stanford and other teams during Ed Orgeron’s tenure? USC clawed back to cut the lead to 14-7 but this does not look like the same team so far.
