One of the most irreverent USC blogs on the internet today, Sports by Scondi, has returned to publishing. You should check out his preview of Arizona State at USC. A brief snippet is below:

The offensive line, defensive line, running backs, secondary, linebackers, receivers and special teams will be the best they play this season.

Here is something in Helton’s favor; a good home record. Good thing our fans are always dedicated to the program and don’t have anything better to do on a Saturday night in Los Angeles.
I bet you’ll be able to hear a pin drop in the Coliseum.
Arizona State has an extremely talented offense led by running back Kalen Ballage. Their defense is easier to score on than their entrance exam.
Would I be surprised if USC won? Nope, but I am not going to be glued to my television to find out. When your college football team is making you enjoy the other things in your life, that is a major problem. Last year I was on my couch from 10 am until “Pac-12 After Dark”.

Now I want to go outside, be active, and enjoy the company of my friends and family.
This team is so bad, and so disappointing that they are no longer a distraction from reality. So I’ll be enjoying my life instead of watching this team…
*End up watching the majority of the game*
