    The halftime stats are really even.

    Total yards: USC - 203, Iowa - 209
    Average gain per play: USC - 6.2, Iowa - 6.7
    Third down conversions: USC - 6-of-7, Iowa - 3-of-4 (plus a 4th down conversion)

    The big difference is a 98-yard kickoff return touchdown for Iowa and a 27-yard punt for USC, as special teams are hurting the Trojans again.

    Iowa people are douchebags. Devious, petty, jealous, suspicious, two-faced, hiding behind the veneer of god, country and apple pie. Phony. Like Clay.

    Because I am right? Too funny. You are a blind man, and stupid to boot.

    I’d take Del Rio now. Anything is an upgrade!

    ERIK, Besides Utah we didn't beat anyone really good. We were lucky to win eight but a lot of those eight wins were against bad teams. It was the perfect storm for Clay to survive.

    Halftime grades
    Defense : F
    Special Teams: D- (only because of Chase McGrath FG)
    Offense: B+
    Who will receive a game ball from Helton: Bohn, Baxter, Clancy or Folt?

    What? What are you talking about. I have been watching the match up here and the sack given up was oline miscommunication and he only has one other pressure after that... stop hating

    Name the 3 QBs better than Slovis, as 18 year old freshmen, that could lift a team such as this onto his back, , without a running game, and keep us in this game.

    I can wait.

    If you want to tell me Iowa the most out of players by far because of how they're coach and how they practice I'll agree 1000%. Seriously - if the problem is the players it can't be the coaching then, And I think better than 90% believe its the inadequate coaching.

    You might be right in a year or two about the players being the weak link - but that debate will be settled before the end of November, not December by then.

    And USC was fortunate that Utah insisted on playing a stupid defensive scheme in the first half. Then USC was able to (barely) hold on for the "win."

    USC has run the ball from scrimmage only 5 times. You just can't win doing that.

    No you are wildly wrong. Clay Helton turns gold into shit. Only a moron would think the raw talent isn’t there at USC.
