What’s in store with this USC podcast:

  • Michael and Alicia open the show by discussing USC’s bowl possibilities. Is it possible that Alicia will get her wish of going to the Cheez-It Bowl? Michael says, pretty much no.
  • Alicia may be disappointed about the Cheez-It Bowl prospects, but the RoTBots who called into the Rant Line up the ante with a truly downbeat “Win Rant Line” montage.
  • In the news early this week, the Trojans are likely to burn Kenan Christon’s redshirt, they lost a legacy commit and don’t have a kickoff time for the UCLA game…yet.
  • The RoT due jump into a discussion of the game, which is hard to process. What matters more, the stellar first quarter or the three quarters of disappointment that followed? And what exactly changed to turn a potential blowout into a narrow win?
  • This week’s Over/Under results could have gone better for both hosts, but who got the better of the picks?
  • As always, the show ends with a mailbag including questions about Mike Bohn, the coaching search, Jack Yary, ranking past coaches and the RoT origin story.
