    Military leaders always look to the last war to make plans for the upcoming one. And they usually learn lessons that are no longer applicable. So the fact that we haven't played so well on the road must mean that we will not play well in this game is overstated. There were a lot of reasons we haven't played well on the road including starting an inexperienced freshman and third string QB. Slovis has a lot more experience and played well in South Bend. ASU is not a great team. They are certainly no ND and not even UW. We should be able to contain their offense and let our skill players score enough points to beat them. The big question is whether this team was so demoralized from the beatdown last week that they have given up or whether that will light a fire under them. I think we get a bit of both. They come out with some fire, struggle and go into a funk, but still pull this one out with superior talent.

    Sheesh. That thrashing in the coliseum really put you guys more in touch with reality.

    Still, USC is better than average and my alma mater isn't.

    That's the 32-point thrashing talking.

    I like talking to really keen minds like yours, KeenObserver.

    Exactly...maybe I should have been picking against them. I just updated the score a bit. I still think they lose, because now the players have something to lose for! I mean, if I were on the team, I would seriously consider losing the game just so I could get Urban Meyer as my new coach. Clay has nine lives though. There can be no good news for USC. Our luck is that he wins out, we go to the Sun Bowl and Helton is retained for another season that will be in the dumps. I think this could be a blowout for ASU or be a close game, either way, SC will lose. Since Clay also has a penchant for his team playing just shitty enough to lose...35-33 ASU. Clay goes for two to tie the game mid 4th quarter, but fails. SC cannot stop the run late in the fourth quarter and ASU clocks it.

    ----------------

    Late edit. Looks like Daniels may not play. I think Clay just got a reprieve. I'm going to have to change my score to 35-24 Trojans. Conservative Clay finds a run game to get one last TD to put the game away late in the 4th quarter as ASU mounts a furious comeback attempt in the second half. I get to continue my streak of picking SC to win. Let's see if it pays off.

    What's the over under on converted 3rd and 10 or more for ASU in this game? I say they go 5/7 on 3rd and 10 or more. SC still cannot maintain gap integrity AND contain the edges at the same time. Their DL and LBs are too slow, which is why our opponents ALWAYS get the corner unless a S or CB run them out of bounds.

    --------------

    Friday edit:

    Without Daniels I think ASU won't be able to exploit one of the major weaknesses of this team.

    Will be there behind the SC bench cheering us on. Beat the Devils. I imagine Slovis will want to light it up.

    This is a must win for Helton and the team will respond. Lack of a run game could make this a lower scoring game for the Trojans, but I'm betting Slovis throws for 350 yards and three TDs. SC will struggle with the mobile QB.

    I think SC squeezes out a very hard fraught 28-17 victory. I’ll be there with my O.G jersey on.

    Except the new AD will not be at the ASU game nor will he be in LA yet.

    I was going to post a USC loss but just having read that Jayden Daniels is a game time decision due to a leg injury, I doubt he will be the same running threat if he played.
