    I do not know, but it looked like JT was trying to tell the Refs that the bRuins were making disconcerting signals at the line

    Toa loses his concentration too many times. That's a handicap a center cannot have. Two weeks in a row Toa hurt the team. Unacceptable. Helton's handling of this season long problem is also unacceptable.

    Guttie center makes perfect snap and can pull and lead block too .. this is worst USC team ever
    1991 team actually beat a real good PennSt team and Hackett beat UCLA in a game like this

    What are you talking about?
    Toa played his normal game today.
    False starts, bad snaps, penalties, everything, he’s the total package.
    You don’t have to be good when your head coach idolizes you.

    This player has consistently made similar mistakes throughout the whole season and is still there playing center. It's amazing how poorly this team is coached. USC team, with supposedly great raw talent and full of four- and five-star players, is probably a laughing stock for other teams in the weak Pac 12.

    From time to time opposing players try to mimick the QB to get Toa to snap the ball. What I did not understand is that once the ball is snapped it should have been a live ball versus a false start penalty. I know that is not a good scenario, but if they are going to blow the whistle to stop play then they need to call the penalty on the defense.
    I also remember Sam used to initiate the snap with hand signals, especially in opposing stadiums. If that is so, I am not sure why they went away from that. Maybe SoCal can answer that question.
    Fight On!

    Weak HC allows poor players to keep playing, that’s what SC is now. Trophy for playing

    He must have had some kind of meltdown.

    The play starts with the center just like a pitcher in baseball. It all starts with them. You loose focus = Tran wreck.

    JT can bitch about UGLY but Toa is a friggen senior! Grow a pair and be a man!

    Green Bay was doing this Thursday against the Seahawks. Hawks got called multiple times for false starts in their own stadium and the refs did nothing even after Pete and some Hawks players pointed it out.

    The Seahawks ended up switching to the silent snap count.
