If there's a trap game, this is it.

USC is playing the way they do in upsets. Penalties and turnovers giving Washington life. This game could easily be 17-0

Overrated? There always seems to be at least one game that USC loses every year that they should have won.

Pau Gasol is GONE

How has nobody here mentioned the loss of Matt Barkley for this game? Do you guys know football? Not having Barkley was obviously the biggest reason why SC lost this game. Corp was just brutal. Washington was just daring him to throw the ball and he was scared. He went 0-9 on third down conversions, my goodness. What a joke. He should never play again. Too bad Pete didn't give Mitch Mustain a chance either before it was too late.

I didn't mention Matt specifically because I thought that was obvious. You lose your starting QB and that would def factor into any teams lost. However, USC was still the third ranked team in the country iirc. Now, USC has lost at least one conference road game in six of the last eight seasons. Then, didn't Washington go winless last season? Look at the TOP: Washington had the ball 10 mins longer the 'SC.

Big upset

Of course it's still an upset no question about it, but for anyone to possibly underestimate the importance of the factor & role that not having Matt Barkley and Aaron Corp absolutely sucking balls played, would be simply asinine.

It also helped that Steve Sarkisian knew most of USC's plays & system already having that familiarity with them for such a long time. That was definitely an advantage as well.

I tried doing HWK during the game, but I was too busy yelling at the dumb QB and on again-off again defense.

How the HECK did we lose to Washington? They didn't even win a game till last week! And I hope Matt Barkley breaks his other wrist <_<

lol, no I don't. God forbid that happens.

Sark's knowledge of USC pretty much did nothing. It wasn't a mystery as to what USC's game plan was.




In Corp's defense he wasn't even told if he was going to be starting QB until game time. Given that, he still sucked. There's no excuse for playing as bad as he did and I actually hope this kid signs his transfer papers because I don't want to see him anymore. Play calling was a huge reason why this game was lost. Why the [expletive] would you run the ball with 18 seconds left and no timeouts? Why would you not take a 3 point lead into half and work from there? That was one of the most idiotic plays I've seen in awhile. Another problem was fumbles. Seriously, what's the problem here....I really don't get it. 3 turnovers inside Washington 30. Why the hell would you not blitz Locker on 3 and 15? You take a TO to discuss and that's what you come up with? You can watch this game over and over and can't help but wonder what the hell they were thinking at that point in time.

I know USC isn't playing a team exactly known as tough, but regardless, man do they look so much better out there with Barkley back. I guarantee they wouldn't have had the embarrassment they had last week had Barkley been healthy & played instead of a no confidence Corp.

Stafon looks to be doing well. Had he not been an athlete he may no longer be alive.

When I heard about this I was like damn...that sounds extremely painful. I wonder how long he'll be out. I heard his vocal cords are wrecked.

Perhaps she's acting like she really only wants to spend time with you and have a good time, but somewhat secretly, is really looking to try & check up on you? Lol.

Hope that Stafon Johnson has a speedy recovery.

He was reported to have communicated with those around him today via hand signals and writing on paper. The doctors said it could be up to six weeks before they even attempt to have him speak again. Its a very serious issue and I'm glad that it wasn't the worst case scenario.

Fight On Stafon!!! You're in my prayers.
