So, I think it is fair to say that yesterday's performance that USC's offense is somewhat anemic.
We can dissect it all we want but it won't change a thing.
But you cannot compare Barkley to Corp or vice versa...
Although Corp will be the focus of criticism, the reality is USC's passing game did not do much better against Ohio State. Barkley was 11 for 25 before the final drive in Columbus and the Trojans have not converted third downs no matter who plays quarterback.
Well yeah...that is obvious.
But Corp has been in the system for 3 years Barkley 9 months. I stand by my remarks that Pete Carroll saw something that gave him pause on naming Corp the starter early in the week. It is clear he wants Barkley. The question is where will Corp end up on depth chart? That was a terrible performance...the worst in the Pete Carroll era and it could have serious repercussions.
Barkley will continue to grow and hopefully become what we expect him to be...Corp on the other hand is a big question mark. He did not answer the bell when he was called and we saw the results of it yesterday.
