I spoke to an NFL defensive coordinator who watched the USC-Stanford game and wondered if the coaches/administration have any idea what the nation’s top programs are doing to be successful?
“USC football is in a sad state of affairs. whoever is overseeing the program, they are not paying attention to what is going on at the top of college football,” he said.
- Forbes magazine has its annual ranking of the nation’s most valuable football programs. USC is only No. 18. By comparison, in 2013 the Trojans were ranked 13th. Full rankings here.
- Sam Darnold had an excellent performance in his first game. Here was the danger of pundits who went after Darnold when his first pass was a pick six.
That’s a Collin Cowherd-esque level flip-flop.
