USC Saturday Notes: Lincoln Riley Imitates Pete Carroll

Why did USC go for 2 points last night with a 32-10 lead vs. lowly Colorado?

The reason was simple: The Trojans wanted to put something else on film for UCLA to worry about before next week’s game. That’s why the play was run last night and not in another game.

It’s part of the gamesmanship that happens. There is actually a precedent too. In 2001, USC played Cal and won, 55-14. Kicker David Davis scored a touchdown on a fake field goal 3-yard run. The following week USC played UCLA and Pete Carroll said he did it just to give UCLA something to worry about.

Sometimes, I have a good memory!

  • Did you see some LAFC players led the Trojans on the field? A USC graduate sent me this observation: “We don’t want your championship game messing up our Homecoming parking and traffic but we’re happy to bask in the glory of your historic victory.”
  • Here’s humorous fact of the night: 61,206. The announced attendance figure. If you went to the game, you saw far fewer fans.

      3. Pasadenatrojan I disagree with you. Democrats didn’t cheat. Y when Repubs lose that say Dems cheated. Don’t get your Repubic hairs in a frenzy. Your going to win a slight majority in the house. Dont worry be happy!!!!! Or figure out how to gain the trust of voters. Democracy will never be taken for granted. Unless your stupid egotistical right wing extremist, you know who you R Repubic farts. Please don’t draw a reference to me being a homophobic Dem. I am left wing EXTREMIST!!!!!!!!!!! Not a political ROLE MODEL!!!!!!!!!!!! Go Warnock beat the shit out of Walker, so we don’t have to kiss the ass Manchin N ugly picture Cienma the of the Caucus to get policies through the Chamber.

      4. Nailed it…..The repukes cry election fraud before the election even starts…..They live in a false reality, and if they don’t get the results they want at the ballot box they instantly cry “voter fraud”.

        Walker is a fucking joke…..The repukes should be embarrassed for even putting him on the ticket

        After the dust settled, trump was the big loser. He’s a great asset for the Dems, he single-handly turned the red wave into a ripple

    1. Pete Carroll was well aware that defense wins championships

      ‘Ol Mule Shoe doesn’t give two shits about establishing an elite defense, evident by the shit defensive coaching staff he put together

      If that isn’t bad enough you have ‘Ol Mule Shoe and Grinch blaming the players for not being good, saying that most players on defense aren’t “their players”

      What a load of horse shit, coaches are supposed to develop players, not have them regress which is what Grinch, Nua and the other idiot Donte Williams have managed to do with the defense

    2. “Ol’ Mule Shoe couldn’t carry Pete’s jockstrap.” Don’t know as much about underwear as you do, but why would Pete wear one? And why would anyone want to wrestle you, the leading authority on jockstraps, for Pete’s? I remember when you were a new kid in P.E. and they told you it was a gas mask. And you insisting your skirt was a kilt. (Those were the days)

  2. I don’t think LR was showing SUCLA anything, he will throw out the whole play book next week. We still have a higher ceiling on offense. If Caleb can throw check downs to Releek that will be better than extending plays with our receivers still not netting a big play. Releek is ready to show his worth in these next 3 games. His speed is a difference maker.

    1. MG, I predicted that this scenario would play out now that Washington has upset overrated Oregon. Now it doesn’t make a difference about their game next week. We beat SUCLA n Oregon beats Utah PAC 12 CG against Quacks. Their secondary is trash running game & Ol proved they can run the ball n keep our defense out on the field for long drives. Watching Arizona carve up SUCLA. Next week game is shaping up for us to make our mark as the defacto best team from the PAC12. To me just looking at Oregon Utah SUCLA, nobody is really head and shoulders above anyone. Any given Saturday you can be beat and that is no joke. Caleb is going 2 tear SUCLA secondary up mobile QB are killing PAC12 defenses.

  5. Help with tiebreakers now that Ducks lose.
    Top 4 teams have 1 lose each.

    After next week, 2 of 4 will have 2 losses.

    I believe SC is in P 12 championship game if they beat Ruins.
    If Utes win, we get our rematch. If Ducks win, we play Ducks.

    Does that sound right?

    3. No, LSU will have 3 losses after Georgia, TCU is in if they are undefeated, and so it will be between the loser of Ohio St-Michigan with one loss and a one-loss SC or sucla team, and the Committee may select that coveted No 4 slot to the team that finished best

      1. LJ Hopefully the Committee will reward the team that played the best in Nov & Dec, regardless of how they won Everyone knows this is an offensive conference and each year it’s hard for any team to go undefeated. With that being said most college teams defense with exception of GA, maybe MICH can control the game with their strengths. If teams don’t generate a pass rush, all teams that have a good QB,can win the game. Unless your Michigan, who runs the ball n controls the clock, that keeps your defense fresh. Hopefully LR will scheme plays based on specific coverages.

  7. That Washington-Oregon contest was as riveting as the Sark Texas team was a drag
    SC now does not need for Oregon to beat Utah because the SC-sucla winner will play either the Ducks or Utes in the Pac-12 Championship game

    And with Oregon’s loss the “Final-4” poll looks like this–
    Georgia
    Ohio St
    Michigan
    TCU
    Tennessee
    LSU
    USC

    If SC wins out the team will pass up LSU (loser to Georgia) and I believe Tennessee as well because the Volunteers will not be playing an extra game like all the front-runners so that would leave SC at No. 5 (or sucla at No. 5 should they win out)

    Other than Georgia TCU now looks as if it has the easiest path to a Final-4 bid with only Baylor standing in its way and the Bears were pathetic today.

    And the loser of Ohio St-Michigan still might not slip behind SC so it might come down to style points with the Committee

    When was the last time SC was this close to a possible championship, probably 2008 a whopping 14-years ago, so I am milking these moments for all they’re worth because the bubble may burst with the sucla game

    1. The last thing USC wants is to make the playoff. They want no part of any of the other teams in it. If you ask the coaches they’ll all say making it and getting slaughtered by a top 4 playoff team hurts the program going forward – reenforcing their soft – more than making it helps.

      They talk about the Max Browne Alabama game and the Sam Darnold bowl game in the Dallas Palace where they were de-emasculated by Ohio State.

      The Oregon vs Georgia game didn’t really fortify their spirit either.
