Oh, by the way, this is Crosstown Rivalry week.
Clay Helton even messes this up because more people care about him than the USC-UCLA game.
I think USC workers waited until Monday morning to cover Tommy Trojan in duct tape. That tells me evne USC thinks people are not paying a lot of attention to the rivalry.
In some years, USC would cover up the statue two weeks before the Crosstown Rivalry.
I think people will say USC is going to beat UCLA because the Trojans play more intense this season or care more than a year ago.
I would put it another way: USC is being led by someone (Kedon Slovis) who plays with more energy and leadership and takes a lot of hits.
- How Andy Enfield-like is it that the extremely talented USC basketball team was only beating Pepperdine, 81-78, with two minutes left in the game last night?
