Did you survive that grueling exercise? This was a game USC easily could have lost if it played a slightly above average team.
USC’s defense is not ready for Prime Time. It’s downright shoddy against any offense that is competent.
How would the Trojans fare in the Big Ten with that defense? Or the College Football Playoff?
I don’t care who was out tonight. The defense is awful and if I were Lincoln Riley, I’d start worrying about the defense for the UCLA game. The secondary is a mess.
The offense, on the other hand, is going to score no matter what. I’m never worried about who USC signs at wide receiver.
Did it really matter that Jordan Addison and Mario Williams were out? Wide receivers are a dime a dozen. Just plug and play.
And don’t get me started on the officials. The ridiculous sequence at the end of the half with the clock starting while the ref has the ball in his hands. And the phantom personal foul on Arizona. Enough with the Pac-12.
