    Pendergast may be our biggest enemy.

    We have the personnel

    The bend don't break thing won't win against better teams.

    I hope he can adjust.

    Fight On,

    In case you didn’t hear it, Reyna wanted to go to SC.

    And JT likely out for much of the season, if not entire season.

    Really not certain making Slovis the back up because you rooted for him, and warmed your heart overachieving this off season.

    A "reward" isnt making him the backup when this exact situation creeps up.

    Now he's the starter and in charge of leading the team for entire game.

    Is he really the best option right now?

    I mean, I watched Sears and Fink in limited run last couple season and they looked WAYYYY more comfortable and game ready, and effective than Slovis did.

    Slovis had one 'throw it up and pray' toss to Vaughs but after that, he didnt complete a single pass other than checks to RB's and even those were nearly blocked.

    I just cant believe Helton put his job on the line with a true frosh as backup.

    Maybe he is a fail safe. He can always say, but he's just a freshman, what did you expect?

    Sad thing is 10 years from now there will be players who wanted to go to Fresno but ended up at SC.

    I'd prefer to hear about how long it took JT to grow and regrow his stache but he didn't have the grit to move the conversation that way.

    LOL. The reality is the school will always be it’s own best recruiter.

    Score was about what we all predicted. Wish we looked better. Record 1 - 0.

    Big statement when the announcers said Palo Mao bailed Helton out with the interception after another horrible coaching decision. More discussion about Fresno State’s potential. Pretty sad, good thing the east coast is asleep. The bad thing is that we will be watching the second half of the season on the Pac12 network!
    Fight On!

    So, 31 points and 447 yds of offense. Sure glad SC switched to the Air Raid. /s

    By the way, Fresno State, with it's 3 returning players on offense, outgained USC 462yds to 447. Way to go Clancy!

    I need to look at the tape but I don’t think it I should too early to start the fire Clay chant. Two number 7s on the field on the opening play? Time outs at the absolute worst time. Shot gun on 4th down play with new QB.

    He always plays down to the opposition and gives up way too many big plays. I am never ever comfortable when he is coaching our defense. My butt is puckered each and every play just knowing a huge play against us will be coming up. It happens time after time, after times, game after game, and now year after year. What did they see in the defense to be able to justify keeping him?

    This game looked like a continuation of 2018. A fast start, then: Horrible coaching decisions and no in-game adjustments. Fortunately, we were had a special teams touchdown and late interception. And of course a true freshman quarterback. It looks like it's going to be a long season.

    If JT would have stayed in game, we would have had 600 yards offense.

    Our offense looked more effective overall. More organized. Better tempo.

    Yes, we should have run the ball more but still...there were positive signs. Running backs looked great. JT threw the ball well. Wide receivers were solid. O line created some big holes to run through and looked above average much of the night.

    However, I thought Slovis looked completely out his comfort zone and over his head, as he probably should.

    Besides Slovis, a few untimely calls, drops, and turnovers, the offense as a whole looked much better.

    Not sure what we expected on defense. We left Clancy in place. Wasn't a fan of his in NFl, at Cal, or here ever. Bend but dont break defense my arse.

    That said, Drake Jackson is a future all pro

    Shotgun in Victory and a snap suitable for a punt.
