Just a few things close out the Syracuse win before we head into Stanford week...
Before heading east this week, USC running back Silas Redd estimated he'd have about 25 family members and friends in attendance at MetLife Stadium to support him and the No. 2-ranked Trojans against Syracuse.
It turned it he was off by a few -- about 200 showed up.
And dozens of them stayed around to greet him after his starring performance in the Trojans' 42-29 win over the Orange, many of them proudly sporting USC gear. His father, mother, brother and sister all greeted him as soon as he left the locker room after the game
"It felt incredible," Redd said later of the gameday experience. "Especially to show out in front of my family. It's a blessed feeling."
Who isn't happy for this kid?
I could not have been easy to leave PSU under any circumstances...tougher still under the cloud that hit that program.
I think Silas Redd has fit in just fine!
