Is there ever a better time to make a coaching change based on the state of the Pac-12?
If USC hired the right coach for next season would there even need to be a grace period?
Who scares you in the Pac-12? Who will be markedly better next season?
Every season is different but if USC hires a good coach and is able to rebuild the current recruiting class there is no reason USC cannot be one of the favorites next season. On top of everything, a new coach might even have an open QB competition. Imagine that.
By the way, Urban Meyer went 8-3 in his first season at Bowling Green, 10-2 his first season at Utah, 9-3 his first season at Florida and 12-0 his first season at Ohio State.
He was 46-6 in his second season at those schools.
- USC and UCLA were tied for last in the Pac-12 in red-zone offense entering last weekend. The Trojans scored 14 times in 19 opportunies (73.7 percent).
Is it possible one reason is the offense relies so much on deep passes to score that it runs into problems near the goal line? With three tall receivers (Michael Pittman, Tyler Vaughns, Drake London) you would think a jump-ball play would work in the corner of the end zone. Someone inform Graham Harrell.
