What’s in store with this USC podcast:

  • Michael and Alicia open the show with a discussion of comfort versus audio quality before diving into the news from practice this week. Specifically, they run down all of the many injuries USC has to worry about going into the Arizona game.
  • Previewing Homecoming means comparing a potent offense like Arizona’s and a potentially-potent offense like USC against defenses who look extremely outmatched on paper.
  • As always, we set Over/Unders for the match up, with some help from our friends in the RoT Crew. Then it’s time to predict the game, which is very likely to be a shootout.
  • The mailbag finishes out the show including questions on using Talanoa Hufanga as a spy, USC’s performance against Notre Dame, how many points the Trojans need to score to best Arizona, players to root for most and, of course, Urban Meyer.
