The stats looked good but the QB rotation was a mess. Kedon Slovis said he didn’t know he wasn’t playing in the fourth quarter. Jaxson Dart was cold on the sideline before he got thrown in for the fourth quarter. USC was terrified to pass in the second half especially after the pick six.
Why is it if Clay Helton were still in charge I think Vavae Malepeai would be starting over Keaontay Ingram?
You could give two grades every week: One for Drake London and one for everyone else. The truth is the receivers don’t scare anyone without London.
How many yards would Keaontay Ingram have without holding penalties? Even against lowly Arizona, the flaws showed.
Ishmael Sopher apparently got hurt again after seven plays vs. Notre Dame. Jamar Sekona, a star of training camp, did not dress vs. Arizona. Korey Foreman, the five-star, went 11 plays. What is going on?
Ka’nai Mauga had 10 tackles but I can’t say it was memorable. This group doesn’t seem to make many impact plays (coached by Todd Orlando, of course).
You can really tell three coaches are handling this group because no one looks like they are on the same page. I don’t know what they telling Isaiah Pola-Mao to do, but he is way worse this season. And the corners haven’t improved either.
Jedd the Fisch fooled USC with a fake punt. At least the Trojans recovered the on-side kick. Punter Ben Griffiths says he is undecided on whether to return next season, which probably means he can’t wait to escape this circus.
Ask yourself this: What coach has enhanced their reputation this season? Donte Williams’ star is plummeting at the speed of light. Todd Orlando is in worse shape than when he got fired at Texas. It is laughable to think Graham Harrell could get the Washington State or Texas Tech jobs.
