The official USC athletic dept. line on the season has now rubbed off on Lincoln Riley, who said this today: “Like, don’t forget where this thing was last year. I think a lot of people have. We’re 8-1 with everything in front of us. Let’s make sure we have some perspective around here. We’re in a phenomenal position.”
As I said before, USC had coaches last season who could not control the team.
And it has been favored in eight of nine games this season.
Let’s not forget those facts either.
