Dion Bailey committed to USC when Pete Carroll was the Trojans’ coach.

He was in the program for three-plus seasons under Lane Kiffin.

Now, he is playing for Ed Orgeron.

“Just roll with the punches,” Bailey said. “I feel like I’ve been doing that ever since I got here.”

Five games into the 2013 campaign, USC is sitting on a disappointing 3-2 record that cost their head coach, Lane Kiffin, his job.

Meanwhile, the Trojans’ frustrated fanbase now finds its time being idled away with speculative banter about who will be tabbed to lead the men of Troy going forward instead of celebrating the Cardinal and Gold’s exploits on the field of play.

How did the Trojans get themselves into such a mess?

Arizona Sunday: Notes

Silas Redd looked more than 100 percent as the senior running back took multiple snaps in today’s practice in preparation for his first start of the 2013 season. Redd stated that everything felt “strong” and that there was no doubt in his mind on whether he would be playing on Thursday. In terms of splitting time with Tre Madden and Justin Davis, Redd confidently stated, “I’m not trying to be cocky but I just don’t think I can be left off the field.” However, he also praised the young running backs’ talent saying, “Our depth at running back is unbelievable.”
