Gable's Fine

So he says...

I will not try to read into the comments of any of our players. If he says he is happy then I will take his word for it,

C.J. Gable boasts the highest average per carry among USC tailbacks, producing an impressive 11 yards each time he has been handed the ball.

But the sophomore from Sylmar, who started the first two games, got only four carries against Nebraska and only one against Washington State.

"I can't do nothing about it," he said Monday. "I'm not in control of it. If they give me one carry, then I have to make the best of it."

Gable has 13 carries, fewer than fellow sophomore Stafon Johnson (32 carries), senior Chauncey Washington (23) and freshman Joe McKnight (14). But Gable's 143 yards rushing rank second to Johnson's 256.

We know he is competitor and I'm sure he is not happy with the situation but he is doing the right thing by not making any controversy out of it.
