Discuss USC football here. 

 

Fight On!

 

USC just finished Spring football. I was at the Spring game last Saturday. Obviously everyone is looking at QB. IMO Kessler looked better than Wittek, but the competition is far from over. Agholor and Lee will be every bit as good as Woods and Lee. Also return 2 productive TE's. Offensive line returning everyone but 1 starter (K. Holmes). Marcus Martin looks like the starting center right now. Defensive front 7 looked solid, but the again its the spring game and its hard to judge. Clancy Pendergast's defense from perevious reports in the spring looks to be more aggressive than Monte's. 20 players were out of the SG they all figure to be back by fall game besides George Farmer who tore his ACL. Going back to physical practices will do that to a team after not doing it for 2 years. It will pay dividends though in the long run. 

 

I liked what DC CCP had to say after the game. I really think the defense will be lights out this yr.

False.  Tee Martin is also competent.  Ed O (until last year) was the premier DL coach in the country.  Getting rid of Daddy may be the shot in the arm this team needs.  Let the D set the pace and tempo, and let the O find its legs.  Granted, we have the opposite of competent burying his face in the Togo's menu all game, so all bets are off

I think Ed O did a solid job last yr. We lose out on Ellis McCarthy to the bruins and he turns Big Leonard Williams into a All American and the Pac 12 Frosh D player of the yr..What did Ellis do? Uko took a big step as well and Morgan Breslin had a tremendous yr.

Matt Barkley has to be asking himself whether or not that BCS title that USC won last year was worth staying an extra year right about now.

 

I forgot, how did Cal do against USC last year?

The same Cal that gave up 31 points to the Southern Utah Thunderbirds.

 

Barkley and USC killed Cal.

 

If it weren't for him, I doubt they would have beat Cal.

 

Decision justified. Fight on.

All-American?

What does Ellis have to do with Ed O's coaching ability?
