Color me unimpressed.
USC is facing a team with inferior talent and a coach who is more than likely out of a job come December, yet lead by a measly six points at halftime. No matter how you spin it, it's hard to feel good about this situation.
The penalties are still a nagging issue (5-for-42 yards), the ground game remains uninspiring (2.7 yards per carry), and this whole 2-point conversion thing is still rather strange.
How much longer will we be able to take solace in the fact that "this is a young team and they need time to adjust to the new schemes."
All in all, it's a little strange watching this team. Yes, they're leading (again), but there is a general feeling of uneasiness surrounding the team right now. And unlike in years prior, a lot of the bellyaching certainly seems legitimate.
Hopefully, we'll see some improvement within the next 30 minutes.
For now, feel free to share your thoughts below. This is the second half thread.
