USC Morning Buzz: Cody Kessler Expectations This Season


USC returns from spring break today and quarterback Cody Kessler said his expectations for himself are higher this season.

“ In my mind I’m competing against guys across the country. (UCLA quarterback) Brett Hundley, (Florida State quarterback) Jameis Winston, guys like that, that are elite quarterbacks across the country. That’s why I go to work everyday thinking `OK, I need to be better than them today. I need to outplay (them) today.’ ”

That really is the question this year: Can Kessler outplay or even match guys like Hundley?

    The question this year is : Can our O line be one of the best in the country?
    If yes, then we can run the ball against Stanford and ND and hopefully win those games.

  • UCLA Dynasty

    Just like the rest of SCCC. Trying to compare himself to UCLA.

      What dynasty?…..hahahaha!!!!!

      • UCLA Dynasty

        The Dynasty your players can’t beat and compare themselves to. The Dynasty that’s in the sweet 16. And the Dynasty that’s the defending national champion in baseball. Basically all the things SCCC isn’t.

        Water Polo On!

          I guess making it to the sweet 16 and winning the Sun Bowl is considered a “dynasty”?

          Wooden’s time was a DYNASTY.

          Pete Carroll’s tenure was a DYNASTY.

          Today’s Bruins are “pretty good.” Maybe change your screen name to “UCLA is good” ?

          When these Troxans aren’t living in the past, they are living in some distant future when the team is good again, and they can take their flying cars to the game to watch androids play football. But then in 2025, USC gets sanctioned for paying its robot players in Bitcoin!

            Is that you Keefer?

  • Trogan Fan

    No he cannot. But the bigger question is whether he can even beat Long Face Max.

  • Didn’t he say this like weeks ago?

    • TrojanFan3.0

      Hey faux bucket, is that you?

    • Sarknado

      Leave it to Wolf to dig up a month old quote.

  • Danny

    The honest answer is probably not but it is the right attitude IF (big IF) he really believes it and is not just saying it to keep the starting job.

  • Fred Sampson

    He’s a complementary quarterback that can win a lot of games with a strong rushing attack , and a stellar defense . Matt Leinhart and John David Booty succeeded under the same conditions , and neither of the three could never win championships with their arms .

      Thank you for some sanity.

  • john wolcott

    Kessler is good.

    Hundley with his running ability is a cut above

    But the Oregon quarterback is the real deal
