Petros Papadakis and Matt Smith led off both the 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. hours of their show with USC today.
Some excerpts from Papadakis:
“They had a massive talent advantage in every game yet they trailed by double digits in half the games they played.
“They trailed in final 2 minutes of four of their games.
“USC is the highest-ranked team to skip a bowl this season.
“They can hire another asst. coordinator video person. They can hire another name and likeness expert firm.
“They can get every Yogi Roth ball-polishing article written about them in the offseason.
“It’s never going to change with the structure they have.
“Even if they beat Oregon, that would not make any difference about the overall truth about the USC football program. It is not a disciplined team. It is a front running team.
“A team that has a guy like Olaijah Griffin dancing around and thrusting his pelvis down two scores with minutes left in the game. They are fool’s gold and an embarrassing thing. It’s an absolute recurring nightmare for West Coast football that USC can’t get off the mat.”
