Clancy Pendergast played a lot of man-to-man coverage in the secondary against Fresno State and a little bit of zone coverage.
This is known as progress with USC because Pendergast mostly plays man coverage.
Of course, if USC plays as much man coverage as it did Saturday against teams that can pass, it could be a really long game.
Pendergast said last week USC can do two deep on defense. So why was the defense tiring at the end of the game?
- The quarterback position swallows up all the attention but where was tailback Markese Stepp on Saturday? He weighs around 230 pounds.
When USC is facing a third-and-1 situation with 3:20 left in the game, isn’t that where you need someone like Stepp?
