With Saturday’s loss to Oregon, the USC Trojans are now 6-3 on the season, a record that no one saw them posting just a few months ago. It seems even more unlikely now that Matt Barkley will finish that business he returned to school to attend to, but that doesn’t mean this team has nothing left to play for over the next three weeks. On the contrary, USC could still spoils some seasons, though that is obviously not the position they wanted to be in this year. Many things happened when the Trojans went Duck hunting, things that could redeem this Trojan team down the stretch. So when life hands you lemons order some a shot of tequila with salt, knock it back, shake it off, and keep on chuggin’.

Let’s begin.

    “It will ultimately come down to USC’s ability to outscore Oregon, which is very doable if they don’t turn the ball over and score on every possession.” Sounds simple enough. No turnovers and score every time you get the football. (*rolls eyes*)

    You need to figure out how to stop them more than 48 – then outscore them – if you get to the CC game then the Rose bowl will be a joke. Cause were gonna send the Indiana Hoosiers :)

    If USC plays the Ducks again it will be in Autzen. The Ducks won’t have their top two pass rushers injured, like last year. USC played about as well as they could Saturday and the Duscks beat them by more than the final score indicated …… that garbage time TD with one tick left.
    I like USC, but they need to reconcile to the fact thay are 6-3.
