USC can beat UCLA without making corrections from last week but it would be a lot easier if it did. Excerpt:
1. Control Jack Jones: In the past two games, cornerback Jack Jones received unsportsmanlike conduct penalties. USC coaches have been unable (or unwilling) to get Jones to play with composure.
“It’s not high school anymore, nobody cares what you say after the play,” USC secondary coach Ronnie Bradford said in reference to Jones’ penchant for trash talking.
“Obviously, we’ve had some good conversations about that,” defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast said about Jones’ penalties.
Does anyone believe Jones will change for the emotional crosstown rivalry?
