Trojans to Rebound Against Cougars

People have been asking me all week what I thought of Saturday’s game between USC and the Washington State Cougars.

I guess they expected me to eviscerate the Trojans and expect them to lose two games in a row just because I accurately predicted they would lose to the Huskies.

How silly. Of course the Trojans are going to cream the Cougars.

This is a Washington State team that barely got its first win last week over Southern Methodist University after suffering double digit losses to Stanford and Hawaii.

They don’t have any continuity in the quarterback position. For this game sophomore Marshall Lobbestael will get the start, but they have true freshman Jeff Tuel on call who has yet to play a down. But in their opening game against Stanford, both senior Kevin Lopina and Lobbestael played. That’s not a good way to define your offense.
