  1. Bisheff: Kessler seizes the day

    Steve Bisheff

    You know that open quarterback competition many USC fans were looking forward to this coming spring? Forget about it. Cody Kessler is the man. The Trojans' exuberant redshirt sophomore took control of the position and squeezed it like a pair of...

  2. Thoughts from around college football

    Steve Bisheff

    They're only college football opinions, but at least they're all mine: • My impression after attending the Steve Sarkisian-USC press conference is that Pat Haden would have made this move even if Ed Orgeron had beaten UCLA. And can you imagi...

  3. In hiring Sarkisian, USC settled for safe

    Steve Bisheff

    What Pat Haden did, in the end, was settle. He settled for a safe, known quantity, instead of a hot, new commodity. He settled for a good coach with potential, instead of a great coach with a proven record. He settled for a double down the line, i...

  4. Orgeron bandwagon takes hit in loss

    Steve Bisheff

    If not Coach O, then who? That was the lingering question among those USC fans suffering through a massive hangover in the aftermath of Saturday night's 35-14 loss to UCLA. The wildly emotional "Hire Ed Orgeron" campaign that undeniably had bee...

  5. Strong case to be made for Orgeron

    Steve Bisheff

    We now know Ed Orgeron can take a team coming off a wildly emotional victory and looking ahead to an eagerly-anticipated rivalry game and coax it to maintain its focus in the frozen confines of a hostile environment. Check off another box on his e...

  6. Lee showing worth as all-star teammate

    Steve Bisheff

    Say hello to Marqise Lee, All-America . . . teammate? Yes, we're talking about the same guy who was an All-America wide receiver and Biletnikoff Award winner for USC a year ago, the same player who was expected to challenge the Trojans' all-time p...

  7. Orgeron making choice easy for USC

    Steve Bisheff

    Pat Haden has little choice now. Ed Orgeron, Andre Heidari and the football gods have conspired to make his decision for him. Barring a complete meltdown in Colorado or an uncharacteristic lopsided loss against UCLA, the USC athletic director has ...

  8. Surging Trojans are bucking the odds

    Steve Bisheff

    There are lots of ways to gain respect in college football. There are the fans, the media and, certainly, your opponents to consider. But the true sign of respect comes from only one place: The oddsmakers. The gentlemen who set the betting line...

  9. Thoughts from around college football

    Steve Bisheff

    They're only college football opinions, but at least they're all mine: • My guess is that USC athletic director Pat Haden's stance on Ed Orgeron's status is to let the season play out. The results in the next four games are likely to speak f...

  10. Oregon State can't stop Trojans' Buck

    Steve Bisheff

    The "Buck" doesn't stop here. And now, all of a sudden, maybe Ed Orgeron doesn't, either. Javorius "Buck" Allen, the sophomore who'd been the forgotten tailback in the first few weeks of this weird, emotional season, rushed for 133 yards and th...

  11. Notre Dame a must-win for Orgeron

    Steve Bisheff

    They're only college football opinions, but at least they're all mine: • If popular Ed Orgeron hopes to build a groundswell of support to retain his current job as USC's head coach, he has to beat Notre Dame. It's that simple. • Con...

  12. USC's ceiling looks higher than expected

    Steve Bisheff

    LOS ANGELES -- So now that we know the new, fun-loving Ed Orgeron-led USC Trojans are more relaxed and creative on offense, while still trying to patch up a secondary that seems to be growing more leaky by the minute, the next question is obvious: ...

  13. Thoughts from around college football

    Steve Bisheff

    They're only college football opinions, but at least they're all mine: • It makes sense for USC to keep Marqise Lee on the sidelines and healing this week, hoping he'll be ready for interim coach Ed Orgeron's first big one at Notre Dame on O...

  14. A first look at the coaching search

    Steve Bisheff

    They're only college football opinions, but at least they're all mine: Is the USC head coaching position really wide open, or is Pat Haden merely conducting a perfunctory search while knowing that Jack Del Rio is already his guy? It's an interesti...
