USC wide receiver Michael Pittman found a good resting place after the end of today’s practice.
We can debate if this is even inspiring or catchy. Or whether Ed Orgeron coined it first.
Back when USC was 1-3, it was pointed out the teams the Trojans played were 13-2 overall. So let’s look at the final four teams on the schedule: Oregon, Washington, UCLA and Notre Dame. They are a combined 13-13. Eliminate Washington and it’s a 7-13 record.
Increasingly, the UCLA game looks like a trap game. If USC wins, it might be considered a non event with UCLA’s struggles. But a loss would be a catastrophe from a fans’ perspective.
USC QB Sam Darnold has the No. 1 quarterback rating in the nation according to ESPN. And it only took 3 games to figure out to start him.
I mentioned yesterday how bad the Pac-12’s marquee teams are this season. Does the Pac-12 have any good nonconference victories yet? This is where the SEC usually gets bashed for its weak nonconference schedule. But Alabama beat USC and Texas A&M beat UCLA, so there’s two victories.
Bovada’s latest Heisman odds have Washington QB Jake Browning fifth at 10/1. How long until someone starts pushing Sam Darnold as a candidate (minus the fumbles)?
