    I would have to review the film first.

    Juliano Falaniko is dressed and going through warmups with the team. Been a while since we've seen him as he's dealt with an ankle injury.

    I have not seen Kenan Christon during warmups, either on or off the field.

    Scotty and Bender might be bet
    Would that be an indicator of other issues? Is this a potential portal candidate?

    Oregon reporters saying they don't see tailback C.J. Verdell in Oregon warmups. Would be a big hit to the Oregon offense and how versatile they can be in the backfield.

    I consider everybody in college football a portal candidate at this point. I wouldn't see any reason to do it now and I'm not going to speculate because I'm surprised not to see him. Not sure what's going on. Always a chance I just missed him or he was back in the locker room for some reason.

    How about Shough, Dye, the entire O line, #5 and their linebackers? Hopefully, they're missing too.

    Oregon running back C.J. Verdell has been confirmed as out for this game. Team-high 65 carries for 285 yards and three touchdowns. Tied for fourth on the team with 9 receptions as well.

    I'm very concerned about the prep time for both teams. Oregon has had two full weeks and USC is coming off that emotional UCLA game. I think that's the biggest thing that swings this game toward the Ducks.

    I just can't pick against the USC offensive talent and the way they've shown up at critical times this year though. If there are a bunch of turnovers, then all bets are off. But I think USC does just enough to win if they're emotionally all there.

    I said it before and must repeat it again, Stepp will go over a hundred and bruise Ducks into submission. Fight On!

    I'm surprised they didn't paint one of the end zones to say Oregon. Both say USC and of course we have all the oversized retired jerseys up. Too bad no fans...

    Yeah, but the Pac-12 mascots are in the stands as cardboard cutouts, so it's like a neutral site.

    Unless there was a blowup of some sort that would not make sense. With Malepeai out, it is a chance for him to get more touches.

    NO PROBLEM, it's not as if we had anywhere to go. If it was a normal year I would have flown in to go to the Coli.

    PS isn't it bizarre that we have cardboard cutouts and piped in crowd noise and smoke for both teams coming on the field.
