It’s Hard To Get Everyone In USC Games

USC is flying high after its 66-14 victory over Rice.

I’m wondering how thrilled some players are who didn’t do much Saturday.

For example:

  • Wide receiver Terrell Bynum, who transferred from Washington, did not catch a pass.
  • Wide receiver Gary Bryant, who started seven games last season, caught 1 pass for 7 yards.
  • Wide receiver Brenden Rice, the transfer from Colorado, had 1 catch for 5 yards.
  • Tailback Travis Dye, who transferred from Oregon and had 140 carries last season, had 5 for 20 yards.
  • Tailback Austin Jones, who transferred from Stanford, averaged 117 carries the past 2 seasons, had 4 carries for 48 yards.

Dye and Jones combined rushed for the same amount as Caleb Williams (68 yards).

Now it’s hard to get everyone the ball when you have a lot of weapons. And it’s Game 1.

But I bring it up because I know how players are. They talk about this stuff all the time. Plus I’ve heard USC coaches talk up players like Bynum even though he doesn’t start. And he didn’t get a pass Saturday.

  1. You have no point Wolf. It’s football, these guys came here knowing what they were getting into and wanted it. Give it a break. If Austin and Dye got 15 carries each you would bitch about not getting to see the freshman. Sometimes this negative schtick gets tiring.

    1. hi John, Lincoln Riley is pass happy coach that’s y running backs not run 4 100 yds. and that’s y Riley can’t recruit 5 star offense linemen cuz Dey know he not run ball . use look good cuz rice is jc level football teams.

    2. Caleb Williams is legit.

      Took USC long enough to get over their prejudice of not wanting a black dual threat QB. Yeah yeah Rodney Pete, but he was way back in the day.

      USC loves that proto-typical Southern California golden hair beach boy look for their QB’s, it’s about time they wised up and are now trying to hide their racism

      Caleb Williams made some great throws

    3. If Travis Dye thought transferring to USC would be an easier road to the NFL, he was WRONG! 😂 He won’t see half the touches he had at Oregon, because Lincoln Riley is pass happy. Rice is one of the weakest teams in college football, but Dye still struggled behind that weak line. And the same goes for Austin Jones, because he’ll wish he was back at Stanford after he touches the ball only three or four times next week 😂😂😂.

    4. Pardon my wonk….

      Hard to get the ball to all your weapons when:
      1. You only run 58 (mostly successful) plays from scrimmage for the game.
      2. A large part of the game was mop-up, so you don’t run plays for your #1 and #2.
      3. You have 3 Pick 6’s which means Rice gets the ball back (further behinbd).
      4. You are Rice and you want to keep it under 70 points so you don’t exactly go into hurry up offense.
      5. It’s hotter than Hell and you might be saving the toil on your #1/#2.
      6. You don’t want to show the whole playbook to your PAC 12 opponents in the first week.

      Just sayin’

  2. I don’t know if you all noticed but I posted on this blog all weekend under multiple screen names – tebowobama, Fuck You, impostor names – and I hate USC. This is how I spend my time. If you were to say I’m a pathetic excuse for a human being, it would be difficult for a rational person or even me to disagree with you. Has anyone noticed that no one actually likes my comments or takes me seriously, and tends to think of me as a joke? Oh well, such is the life of a dork.

  5. What these WR are going have to do is when they get targeted they have to make a big play, everyone will be happy or act like they are, as long as they are winning. I wish LR would do play action with Caleb. BUT they have to be running the ball opening up nice holes, so they can suck in the defense to get the big play over the top . I don’t really see it a big problem look at my previous post on Wolfe is usc back theme. If they try to make everyone happy the would have to throw on every down this is not 7 on 7. Sorry guys either beat out Addison n William’s who has a connection with Caleb. Just pray they work it out.

    2. I would have to think they kind of knew going into the 1st game that the ball would be spread around and will be that way all season, based on the play call and who is open. If they haven’t talked about it in team meetings by now, they should have thought about it long ago and confronted it head on in the beginning. Any stupid talk of transfers out are just that, totally stupid at this point in time.

        NASCAR driver Richard Petty, in a 1972 newspaper article, was said to have once remarked, “If you ain’t trying to cheat a little, you ain’t likely to win much.” Also in 1972, a television character (a rodeo rider) had as his motto, “If you ain’t cheatin’, you ain’t trying’.” The saying became popular by the early 1990s.

Nobody is entering any portal except for the troll, (tb) who came in from a portal will be leaving soon by another one where he can enjoy his life consumed by his hate.

  12. Actually, over time, this works in the favor of USC. As a program, USC wants to keep upgrading the roster. You bring in kids and see which ones perform, first they perform in practices and then they perform in the game. Players that dont perform get less time playing and eventually, they wind up in the transfer portal, which gives the staff more scholarships to bring in more talent.

    Sure you lose some players you might want to keep, but right now, if USC wins games, they will see their recruiting profile get more and more attractive. So they want to be churning out players that dont live up to expectations.

    This game was a little strange due to the 3 pick-six’s. The offense was off the field for much of the second half.

    The key for USC is getting the defense off the field. 3 and out. Put the ball in the hands of that offense. The defense has big issues in both the run and pass game.

  13. And my concern was that Addison only had 5 catches and might be unhappy that he didn’t get 10catch/100 yrs/3 TDs….
    Silly me.

    There are soooo many reps in practice for these guys.
    The talent evaluators know their depth chart and who will get open and catch the ball reliably.

    This meme will continue next weekend, as Stanford will play slow-ball vs Riley. If USC gets 60 snaps versus Stanford we should be happy.

    Anyway, good problem to have.

  14. Don’t worry about Stanford. This coaching staff knows what this team is. The identity is set. All Grinch has to do is find the right way to pursue the Stanford qb up the middle and it’s game over. I’d move Caleb up to the line of scrimmage and zone blitz all kinds of Cats/Slots with stunts on 3rd and long. Stanford only has 5 cb’s and safety that they used. Watch Riley use the run to destroy the edge with TE open all day in the flat areas. Close 1st half with a 30 pt cushion in the second. Backups will be playing in the 4th qtr.
