Notre Dame is really a beatable team this year with average quarterback play and weaker offensive line than usual.
So it really is a shame that USC is in no position to beat the Irish in South Bend, barring a magical performance that hasn’t been shown.
It reminds of when Paul Hackett took the Trojans to South Bend in 1999 and USC blew a game it easily could have won, 25-24. That team found ways to fall short in games and went 6-6.
But it never lost a game by more than 10 points. You can’t say that about this year’s team.
- Five-star defensive end Mykel Williams of Columbus, Ga., flipped from USC to Georgia today.
That must kill the fanboys who spent a few months raving about Williams and his commitment. I never understood why they thought a kid from Georgia would come to USC? Who has USC developed? Drake Jackson isn’t even dominating this year? And what has Korey Foreman done?
