I can’t stop thinking about that third-and-1 play against Texas. Mainly because I didn’t realize until later in the week that USC actually had its third-and-fourth string tailbacks on the field for the play. Again, it has nothing to do with them. It has everything to do with keeping Ronald Jones and Stephen Carr off the field.
Does anyone remember the USC having Reggie Bush and LenDale White in a third-down situation in the first quarter in 2005 and running a play with Desmond Reed and David Kirtman?
