Long-time readers know I like to speak to coaches. So I called a Pac-12 coach today about the USC game regarding defensive coordinator Todd Orlando.
“(Orlando) is feast or famine. He’s going to blitz and either have a tackle for loss or give up a big play.
“It’s almost like he blitzes to blitz. I don’t know if he knows what he’s doing. I’m thinking, `why are you doing this?’ From a rhythm standpoint, I was trying to figure out what they are doing.
“It looked like they were confused. The players didn’t know what side to go to. I guess he’s better than Clancy Pendergast. I don’t know if he is.”
