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 USC and Cal. A brief snippet is below:
“Now for the team. Hopefully the extra rest from the bye week has helped so we don’t come out as flat as we usually do during these games.
The double digit spread isn’t helping my confidence either. But the winning streak does
. . .
I fully expect this game to be a shootout throughout the first half only to have the Trojans pull away in the fourth quarter. Cal’s offense is more volatile than a bus ride with Billy Bush, but Davis Webb is actually going to be playing against a defense that can cover receivers.
I’d like to see our running game continue to improve with the absence of Justin Davis. Hopefully we get to see the fastest player on our team involved again. And it will be very interesting to see who will fill the role left by Mitchell Jr.
There will be a couple more articles on Sam Darnold before kickoff so I’m sure he will have a turnover or two to dispel some of his hype. Don’t worry, I’m sure the bromance between him and Juju will keep growing.
Adoree’: Just do something amazing.
USC 38 Cal 27
P.S. Notre Dame is 2–5”
