GameDay Open Thread: USC Spring Game

New, 60 comments

Today, a few thousand fans adorned in cardinal and gold will settle in at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum to watch the first Trojan Huddle/Spring Game of Lane Kiffin's tenure at USC. And there're plenty of reason to be intrigued by today's scrimmage. For one, it marks a big opportunity for Matt Barkley to show fans how far he's come since last season's disappointing 9-4 finish, and for young inexperienced freshman early enrollees Dillon Baxter and Kyle Prater to turn in big performances in their first game ever at The Grand Old Lady. On the defensive side of things, fans will get a glimpse at Devon Kennard, who mark my word, will be the starter at middle linebacker when the Trojans kick off the season in September at Hawaii.

All in all, a lot of good story lines for this one. In the meanwhile, feel free to post your thoughts on today's scrimmage below. In the meanwhile, check out this video from ESPNLosAngeles.com on Kiffin's press conference that took place yesterday, and for the rest of today, share your thoughts on today's scrimmage and the state of the program below.

Fight On!
