Gobble-Gobble, Trojans Feast on ASU

<!–//–> While you were enjoying your Thanksgiving feast, ASU’s Rudy Carpenter was eating a mouthful of turf. I left the TV for about a minute to get my second-plate of Thanksgiving dinner sometime in the third quarter. By the time I got back to the TV, Arizona State had their backup quarterback in the game, […]

TNYC Cal Review

It was wet and wild, here’s the review: Positive – Establishing the Running Game It was nice to see the SC offense go back to the basics and just pound the ball; to Chauncey’s credit, he did a fantastic job fighting for yards after the initial hit.  Establishing the run game also seemed to help […]

It’s All About the Washingtons

Washington breaks through for a 36-yard touchdown against Cal. (AP/Marcio Jose Sanchez) It was a dark and stormy night. Rain drenched the 72,516 sell-out crowd. The ball was water-logged. Fumbles were lost. Tackles were slipped. The field was slick. And Cal’s defense again and again saw a dark figure pounding out of the backfield. Guess […]

TNYC Oregon State Review

Gotta love our defense, here’s the review: Positive – Defensive Pressure The defense brought the pressure and Sean Canfield ended up being sacked 9 times.  The game-plan was an easy call to make considering the questionable status of OSU’s star all-purpose back, Yvenson Bernard, and the immobility and poor decision-making skills of Sean Canfield, but […]

Ducks Soar, Trojans Tumble

<!– Sanchez Scramble: Mark Sanchez scrambles to avoid Oregon defenders. (Wally Skalij / Los Angeles Times)//–> The game plan was simple. The USC defense was to limit Oregon’s stellar offense; the Trojan defense would do the heavy lifting. All the Trojan offense needed to do was keep the field for as long as possible, keep […]

TNYC Oregon Review

Tough loss, here’s the review: Positive – Defensive Play Even though the defense gave up 24 points (17 when you take away the TD after Havili’s fumble), I thought they played a solid game and came through with clutch stops when the offense needed a chance.  We held Jonathan Stewart (not counting blow-out games) and […]

Shut Out: Trojans Spank Irish 38-0

<!–//–> Feeling Green. Not even Notre Dame’s green throw-back jerseys would give them the luck they needed to keep their quarterback out of the jaws of Sedrick Ellis. It was a historic day for the Irish and one they would likely wish to forget. The USC Trojans beat Notre Dame 38-0 Saturday, in what has […]

Schedule Poster Jinx Too?

It was a cool idea, and well-executed too. That full-color USC schedule poster featuring 16 Trojans in action poses showed the strength and numbers of this year’s USC team. But if you look at it closely, or did so at the end of Saturday’s Arizona game, of the 16 original starters on that poster, guess […]
