    Garry, why put Sears as 3rd string? And how far away is Daniel Imm from being 100%?

    GP with all of the talk and emphasis in camp on being tougher and more physical going forward. Regardless of the final score, should I hit the panic button if we don't physically impose our will on the rebels? I feel like 'SC needs to make a statement and walk the talk, especially with who the following opponent is.

    1. Are we going to see JT take snaps from under the center this season? 2. With Toa L's history of injuries do you think the backups (Neilon, Dedich) are ready if (God forbid) their services are needed for a more than a few snaps?

    Neilon is a stud. He's a center by trade with an entire year in the system. We're solid with him. Hunter Echols is probably still peeling himself off the turf after being pancaked by Brett.

    Garry, Last year it was frustrating seeing how often the Trojan offense was outnumbered at the point of attack on running plays. Do you believe USC has made changes schematically and/or in execution sufficient to solve that problem?

    Garry;

    Same question as before applies still- Should I be worried about Toa's snapping and recurrent pectoral issues? have you seen him snap and is this the cause of the errant snaps? Also what do you make of all the pectoral strains going on? people out of position to make the blocks?

    ,TIA

    Barring injury, will this starting OL be the same personnel in our bowl game at the end of the year?

    Please give us your thoughts on the two DB's that transferred out.
    Who's our top 5 tacklers this season?

    Common logic tells us that coaches tend to not show much of the play book in a game like this one as you may not want to reveal too much to your next couple of opponents.

    However, I'm thinking it might make sense to show off the deep ball just to give Stanford and texas something to think about so they don't commit too early to the all out blitz...which will buy JT some time to get settled in those games. The other thought I guess is don't show it against UNLV and be ready to hit the deep man in man to man coverage against Stanford and texas early in those games.

    What is your thought on these types of strategies?

    Garry, who is the new QB (#13?) from Tuesday practice? Word is he is for the scout team and he looks pretty good? Is he a new walk-on?

    Seems like Chuma Edoga missed a lot of the voluntary workouts this summer, and a lot of the fall training camp practices, too. Is he ready to play? Is his play clean enough to avoid all the penalties we've seen from him in the past? Is there any indication why he's missed so much?

    Is this offensive line better or worse than the ones we saw going into the past two or three seasons? Has this O-line fixed last year's lack-of-aggression problem?

    Will the coaches be better this year with clock management, game planning, adjustments and play calling? We have the talent but do we have the leaders? If yes then I see the Natty sooner rather then later if not we’ll see a lot of close games again this year.

    Sounds like Brett can hold his own. Is he actually the better choice over Toa and is this one of those situations where the senior gets the nod but Brett is actually the better choice (ie- snaps, injuries, long term good for the OL)?
