Today’s USC-UCLA game is a free hit for the Trojans.
What I mean by that is all the pressure is on UCLA and Mick Cronin.
UCLA needs to beat USC a lot more than USC needs to beat UCLA.
Cronin has never beaten USC. He is 0-5.
In fact, if you take away last season’s NCAA Tournament-run, has Cronin been that great at UCLA? I think he is a good coach and he can recruit.
But he couldn’t win the Pac-12 this year despite getting his Final Four team back. When I read the UCLA fanboy media, they seem very forgiving and discuss all the adversity. But that’s what fanboys do at every school.
So who do you think wins today?
USC has no pressure. But UCLA needs to win. It’s a tough pick.
