What did we just witness?
An utter disdain for defense, tackling or pride in getting a stop.
That was a disgraceful performance in the Cotton Bowl. And it probably didn’t really surprise anyone who watched USC closesly this season.
Does Lincoln Riley care about defense? This was answered previously here.
USC could not stop the run today. Tulane had 305 yards rushing. Tyjae Spears had 205.
Tulane had a pretty average QB and pass offense. It threw 10 passes before the final drive. But did anyone think the USC defense would stop Tulane on that final drive?
Riley’s never had great defenses but this year’s defense was terrible. Is Alex Grinch capable of fixing it? Is it time to make a big-time hire for defensive coordinator?
Are you satisified with a Heisman Trophy and huge offensive numbers every week with poor defense?
It’s going to take awhile to get over the pathetic nature of this loss.
