Funny how scholarship reductions is not as big an issue anymore. Yes, it is a burden but it became an excuse until Ed Orgeron took over. He’s proved USC can win under difficult circumstances.
Six weeks ago some people just wanted to make excuses for losing. USC still might lose another game this season. But at least it won’t enter the game with its alibi in hand. The Trojans just beat the No. 5-ranked team in the nation with 50-scholarship players because the coach doesn’t make it an excuse.
