Have you noticed that yellow floor mat that is next to the USC sideline?
Every time a USC player steps on it while running off the field, he slips and falls. Is it worth having it to risk an injury?
The mat is kind of one of those solutions in search of a problem.
- Linebacker Chris Thompson, the transfer from Auburn, played last night. He was injured in August and hasn’t really done much. Linebacker Julien Simon did not play. Neither did wide receiver John Jackson. Korey Foreman played and had one tackle.
- USC defensive tackle Tuli Tuipulotu has a nation-leading seven sacks.
- Former USC assistant Johnny Nansen is the defensive coordinator at Arizona. The Wildcats gave up 599 yards to Cal and 580 yards to Oregon.
