The Pac-12 laid an egg again in a bowl game but can you imagine how USC would have fared in the Alamo Bowl?
Mike Bohn and Clay Helton must have never felt better about skipping the game than after Texas blew out Colorado, 55-23.
How would USC stop Texas defensive tackle Alfred Collins or tailback Bijan Robinson? The Trojans didn’t face players like that in the Pac-12.
It’s really a sad commentary on the state of USC football that this is the case too. There’s no doubt Texas, which lost three games, would have manhandled USC — with or without Kedon Slovis.
The Trojans have become flat-track bullies under Helton, able to beat inferior teams but not respectable teams. That’s why they threw in the towel on the Alamo Bowl, especially after losing Slovis, Amon-Ra St. Brown and Alijah Vera-Tucker.
When Bohn and Helton don’t have faith in the program to face the fourth-place team in the Big 12, it’s time to really ask what the end game is for this football program?
