Interesting comments from Ted Miller's blog regarding Corp vs. Barkley.
Who will be the starting quarterback for USC at the end of the season? (5,385 votes)
- Matt Barkley 51 percent
- Aaron Corp 49 percent
My take: Disagree
Disclaimer: I didn't get to go to USC's spring practices this year, so I didn't get mesmerized by Barkley's 'Matt Stafford Who?' arm. What I do know is Corp has two HUGE advantages: 1. he doesn't make mistakes -- see just one interception all of spring; 2. he's fast. Not just quarterback fast -- fast, fast. I'm imagining that ability to 1. avoid bad plays; 2. turn bad plays into good plays (any USC fans recall a fella by the name of Vince Young?) will earn Corp the job.
I think he makes some good observations here though the lack of INT's during spring to me is meaningless. Booty had a spring like that one season and he still threw some bad picks (excluding Stanford because of a broken finger).
I still don't see barkley starting but his play in spring ball definitely made a lot of take notice. Sometimes that half the fun...speculation.
