USC Monday Buzz: There Were Some Missing Parts Vs. San Jose St.

One interesting aspect of the San Jose State game was who did not play.

There was a lot of build up in August about some young receivers and you didn’t see freshman Michael Jackson playing. You didn’t see the oft-injured Kyle Ford, who is supposed to be healthy. And you didn’t see John Jackson.

Normally, you want to give reserves some playing time now. But the Pac-12 is so bad I’m not sure it matters. USC-Stanford used to be a big game. Does anyone think the Cardinal have a chance this week?

USC opened as an 18-point favorite.

  1. San Jose should’ve been a cakewalk which would’ve allowed for everyone to have gotten valuable playing time. Alas Clay Helton is the coach and everything including player development is F’d up. Stanford is better than San Jose.

  3. We all know we are stuck with Clay for now. That said, what I liked on Saturday (I napped a bit during Q2 and Q3, they seemed like they went on forever) were:

    emergence of leadership in both Drakes

    34 carries for 160 yards, 4.7 average versus 97 yards per game, 3.7 average last year, 120th out of 127 teams in 2020. IMO SJSU defense was not any worse than the average team USC played last year.

    excellent pass rush when Drake Jackson was on team. Great speed, quickness, strength, he influenced the whole D.

    The freshman Bullock (who wasn’t even a regular corner in high school) is a football player in every sense of the word. We had way too many missed tackles, but not by that kid, he knows how to wrap up.

    Special teams are still a worry, as is failing to get Christon onto the field outside of kickoff returns, and too many second and longs on offense.

    2. trojans967 – there are improvements for sure, but when I watched UCLA play LSU I realized that the chance we beat UCLA this year is pretty slim.

      there are just so many coaching failures on the offensive side of the ball. the Pac-12 South has 3 programs that can beat us – UCLA, Utah and ASU.

      I’m pulling for the team, but really feeling like what I saw last week is going to make it hard to win the Pac-12.

  5. Clays best line at the post game presser was when he called San Joe a top25 team. Damn. Look, I get that Helton aint the first guy to use a lil’ creative license when reality doesn’t match the hype, but good gravy… top25? That’s the equivalent of ol’ Quiver Lip Clay telling us he nicknamed his penis “Superman”.
    Note to Clay: Bro, just cause your shiny head is too big for your body doesn’t mean you have to get all misty eyed when a reporter wants to know why your team is grossly underperforming (again). Some follicle challenged coaches, like Bruce B, actually bring their big boy pants on game day…

  7. STANFORD …indians of old had some real good teams & q/b’s in 50’s and into 70’s…then the program went political as did the whole school; some how some body decided to hire Harbaugh and they were back 15 yrs ago,and now they seem to be drifting ,but it ‘ain’t over yet’ Shaw still coaches like a real coach. They have not recruited as well recently,that is part of it,hope sc wins,just doubt hellton 100% of the time.

    1. David Shaw 90 Wins, 36 lossses as a HC in 10 yrs: that’s an average 10-4 season. Not bad.

      I think we see a good, ball-control Stanford team Saturday night.
      If I needed the cash, I’d take Stanford and 18 pts.

  8. Lane Kiffin might not have worked out as USC , but he is an offensive genius. I noticed his teams still pass the ball alot, but through experience he uses 3 backs in the red zone to run the ball or power football. Graham Harrell needs to do the same thing put some extra blockers in front of the running backs to compensate for a poor offensive line. Harrell, appears too stubborn to make adjustments, and thinks you can pass the ball all day in the red zone which is proving to be false.

      There were 2 back sets many times.

  9. Lots of variety in the Ol Miss offense Kiffin runs. They also run the option in the red zone to keep the defense offense. After watching our 1 dimensional offense it is quite exciting watching an offense that has several options especially in the red zone.

    1. As offensive minds there isn’t even the beginning of a comparison between Graham and Lane. Pete Carroll was aware of Lane’s emotional limitations as a coach —but he knew he was one of the top minds in college football when it came to play calling (Lane called the 4th and 9 play at Notre Dame that set us up for the win)…..
