USC ranks No. 101 nationally in run defense, allowing 208 yards per game.
It’s not just yards gained, the Trojans have given up plenty of long runs too (more than 15 plays of 10-yards-or-more).
That means Todd Orlando has four problems:
1.) Front mechanics
3.) Run-fit integrity
Now maybe two games is not a good sample size and I’m not prepared to say he is as bad as Clancy Pendergast.
But right now . . . he looks as bad as Clancy Pendergast and last year at Texas was not an encouraging sign. Oh, and USC played Arizona last week, a bad team.
Remember, USC passed on some NFL coaches to hire Orlando too.
