Clay Helton talked early in the season about his hope that the Trojans would get better each week and eventually peak to playing their best football as they head into November. Well, we are heading into November, and I don’t think anybody is saying the Trojans are playing their best football these days. The Sun Devils are.
This doesn’t happen often to the Trojans. We said the same thing last year after the opening game against Alabama, but that doesn’t make it any less true today. And to have it happen against the Irish, in South Bend, on a national stage, well, any person in cardinal and gold can tell you how they feel about it right now.
