A lot of people seem unhappy with the decision to opt out of a bowl game. I’ve heard from a lot of fans/boosters today about it, which is slightly unusual by USC standards.
One complaint I hear is “They wrote a letter to the Governor demanding to play but won’t go to a bowl?”
Or “Would they have opted out if they beat Oregon?”
I’m sure the players are worn down. One plus for them is final exams were last month so there were no classes in December.
But I do wonder if Kedon Slovis and Amon-Ra St. Brown were not ruled out of a game, would the decision have been as easy?
I’m do not doubt Mike Bohn and Clay Helton let the players decide but I also think both were relieved to skip a bowl.
- And Sam Darnold beat Jared Goff. Again.
