    SC has to stop the elite OL recruits picking the quakes. Their HC is building the team around OL. Clay & Drevno have to show SC can go up north & roast the ducks. No game time HC coaching mistakes like last year duck game. OC Graham has to grow & beat good defense teams. Clay lucks out with no rematch with Saban. National TV match with dormers avoided. Can he rise to the challenge from the duckies?

    There’s no denying that Oregon beat up on USC last year. No way can you find a simple excuse to say, “Yeah, but....”

    Having said that, USC was without Drake Jackson, Talanoa Hufanga, Markese Stepp, Stephen Carr and Vavae Malepeai for the entire game, had Palaie Gaoteote available as a game-time decision and lost Isaiah Pola-Mao, Greg Johnson and Liam Jimmons to injury or ejection in the second quarter.

    I forgot we play Oregon again this season. I agree, we need to make a statement in Eugene, alas 2011.

    2011 was a big time win when ducks were rolling & striking fear in teams. Lane biggest win over a big time team

    That goes both ways. This time they are bringing two 5 star LB's Flowe, Sewell and an elite class into the game. Cristobal plays Freshman early.

    Should be a good game. Oregon is tough at home and the fans can be hostile and obnoxious.

    Correct. Just making the point that the USC team that played Oregon last year wasn't the USC team that played other games. Of course, I'm sure Oregon had a few injury issues for that game as well.

    Looking forward to this fall, you have the added dynamic of USC returning Kedon Slovis and Oregon losing Justin Herbert.

    Really? What about the other 4 losses. Geez by this logic Colorado should have won but Montez was injured and ASU should have won but Daniels was injured Cal should have won but Garbers was injured. Stan should have won but Costello was injured. Huntley was injured in the Utah game We were were lucky to win 8 games. We played 5 games against the opposing teams 2nd string or injured QB.

    I don't think any staff has achieved so little with so much as last year's. AND, nothing pisses me off more than to say that Oregon is finally now a legit nemesis, thanks to their Uighur slave labor profiting sugar daddy, uncle Phil. We helped create both monsters and it is up to us to un-fuck this [make this right].

    The subject was the Oregon game.

    I think Arizona State likely wins that game with Daniels if USC's offense did what it did in the second half again. Not sure about Colorado. I don't think Cal would have won with Garbers. Moss, not Huntley was hurt in the Utah game. But I think Utah does better with a healthy Moss and maybe wins.

    Yes I agree. I just reminiscence of the days when we were so much better than everyone else injuries didn't really matter.

    And of course, the now-infamous kickoff.

    That's why SC replaced most of their coaching staff. Unfortunately, they forgot the most important one. Agree with your post.

    That's just not realistic. USC and Oregon have a total of 24 four star recruits between them for 2021.

    Right now Oregon has a better football program than USC does. That cannot be in dispute. They should be getting great recruiting classes because they have earned them, just as USC did back in the Carroll days. What's happening now is that USC and Oregon are sharing equally the prime recruits on the west coast and the rest of the Pac 12, outside of Washington, is getting very little.
