If you heard the offense was ahead of the defense this week at USC spring practice, it might sound off. Defenses usually have the advantage the first week of spring and fall training camp.
But there was also this to consider: Isaac Taylor-Stuart was the only healthy scholarship cornerback who practiced Saturday.
The offense should be dominating.
There are more defensive backs watching practice during the contact period: Talanoa Hufanga, Isaiah Pola-Mao and Greg Johnson. And even more just didn’t practice: Briton Allen, Dominic Davis, Olaijah Griffin and C.J. Pollard.
So now you know why all the USC quarterbacks threw only one interception this week.
I will say it again: Be careful reading too much into spring practices.
