In the offseason, there was a lot of chatter about how USC was stronger and working harder in the weight room than in the past.
But as I watched the Stanford and Texas games, I never got the impression USC was especially imposing physically.
I see a lot of big guys on the defensive line but not a whole lot of production. Porter Gustin always looks the part but he basically runs his own strength regime.
Again, what is the strength coach doing? Does any USC opponent ever feel beat up after playing the Trojans?
