    True Trojans never cheer for USC to lose.

    No they don’t. It’s poor coaching. Period. End of story. You don’t teach lowering your head in tackling. That’s how you end up paralyzed. Your helmet goes on the side of the body.

    But the thing I don’t get is why it’s OK for the running back to lower his head or lead with his head. But that’s ok. The tackler isn’t then supposed to look away and risk missing the tackle. Everyone says the offensive player isn’t supposed to lead with his head...but they aLways do...and I never see it called.

    “Lowering the head before attacking by initiating forcible contact with the crown of his helmet.”

    Seems pretty clear.

    I remember when it was tough for an opponent to get a first down against an SC defense. Now, they all seem to march up and down the field.

    Poor calls by Kal OC led to FG rather than another first down.

    I’ll have to see a relay because to me he didn’t do that. He ran straight into the ball carrier in the upper chest. Yes his head went down prior to the hit but he just didn’t spear him. Tacklers are being penalized because the head is attached to the body. Didn’t see contact with the “crown” which seems to be the whole helmet this season.

    I hope we can establish some sort of running game and also pick up their blitzes.

    Next think they will make the players wear leather helmets and wear tutus. The trouble with the PAC 12 refs there is no consistency in their calls.
