Now that Coach Orgeron has officially left the USC program, after spurning a potential job offer from Pat Haden earlier this week, we must take a step back and remember what transpired right in front of our eyes.
We would like to thank current USC student Ariel Blandford, who documented the Arizona Thursday night game from the early hours of the morning to the final moments of the Trojans' seven-point victory.

Now for some final words from the former interim coach, who carried the team back into the national rankings with a 6-2 mark. Coach Orgeron loved his players and they surely respected him, which makes these final words seem extremely genuine and quite heartfelt as both sides move in different directions.
