    I will say USC 31 FSU 10. New QB for FSU with suspect passing. Believe our defense will perform well against a mostly 1D offense.

    Offense will take time to gel. Suspect that we are at least 7 to 10 points better than last year on average with FSU being about average of the opponents that we faced last year. Lots of energy to start on offense.

    ASU looks like the real deal. I'm more worried about them. That true freshman Daniels does not look intimated at all. In a few weeks he's going to be a problem. Fresno State does not have an Eno Benjamin so:

    USC 38 FSU 31 I'm not sure our young DBs will stop FSU's passing game.

    Good call!

    Ok, so the details weren’t precisely accurate...it happened in the 2nd quarter and it was his knee not his toe...but he IS out for the season...Slovis wasn’t exactly amazing, but he didn’t lose it...and if he kicks ass in the coming weeks, he still has a shot at making these prognostications come true! ✌

    That said, the entire game felt just like last season part deux or redux! I’ve never dumped on Clay Helton, but this game really showed me some things. That decision to go for it on 4th and not punt with a green confused freshman at the helm, the poor clock management, some of the same ol’ predictable 3rd and short runs up the middle (BTW, I thought he wasn’t calling plays anymore? It sure seemed like he still had his hand in the cookie jar!), poor tackling - Reyna was motoring around untouched like a little kid riding his scooter around at the park, lack of discipline (though slightly improved), etc etc...have finally convinced me that Helton needs to move on. I really wanted to give the man a chance...even after last year...but c’mon, enough is enough!

    So what are the contest results after week 1, TrojanHorse?

    Thanks for doing this each season. One of my fave things on the site.

    Sorry for the delay. Had a small accident yesterday morning and spent a good part of the day in the hospital yesterday. But the show must go on...Just finished tabulating.

    We also had a new record of 126 unique players this week which eclipsed the old record of 102 set back in week one of 2018...so it took a little longer than normal to tabulate also...

    Saturday's game turned out to be less than most of us hoped for, but certainly not all that unexpected either.

    Especially when you consider over 30 players were within single digits on combined variance. And four players were within 1 point combined variance:

    The runners up are:
    @13Perspective
    @Carlsport
    @Conquestluvr
    @Ladera Trojan

    However, as they say "close" is for horseshoes and handgrenades...

    The Official Game Prediction Winner of the Week Award – goes to:
    @Globe Nailed it - and is our winner this week with a pick of 31 -23. Congratulations!!!


    The Coveted Most Wrong Title:
    Technically it has not been decided whether when someone picks outside the parameters whether their pick is thrown out completely or just gets a haircut down the max allowed for the week. A refinement may be in order to the rules soon.

    That said, it just feels right, out of nostalgia if nothing else, to give the award to @The Lizard King .

    But honorable mention certainly goes to @Tamatoa916 with a legit pick of USC 63 – FSU 0. That’s some Trojan Spirit right there!

    Next week... bring on the Cardinal. Both teams look like they will have untested backup QBs. Is that an advantage for one side? or do those two announcements cancel each other out? You decide.
