  2. Was this finally USC's breakout game?

    Steve Bisheff

    It must be the helmets. Attired in their shiny, new, metallic cardinal helmets and flashy chrome facemasks, USC looked like a different football team on Saturday night. Cody Kessler was throwing record-breaking touchdown passes, Nelson Agholor was...

  3. Trojans off to disappointing start under Steve Sarkisian

    Steve Bisheff

    The only thing playing true to form in this frustrating USC football season is coach Steve Sarkisian's record. He was mediocre in his five years as head coach at the University of Washington, and after a depressing 3-2 start in 2014, the best way ...

    Steve Bisheff

    Andre Heidari's dramatic 53-yard field goal and J.R. Tavai's stadium-rattling sack weren't just game-changers for USC on Saturday. They were tone-changers. The whole tone of the Trojans' football season changed with that gritty 13-10 victory over ...

  5. USC should kick Josh Shaw off the team

    Steve Bisheff

    Josh Shaw will play football again. But it shouldn't be for the USC Trojans. Not after this. Not after humiliating his coaches, his teammates and the program. Not after a blatant lie that grew worse when he, for some inexplicable reason, tried to ...

  6. Justin Wilcox has look of future head coach

    Steve Bisheff

    Football coaches love to make lists, and the funny thing about USC's new defensive coordinator is that all of a sudden he finds himself on a list of his own. Justin Wilcox is on the "hot list" of young assistants around the country already project...

  7. Spring impressions from USC

    Steve Bisheff

    It is a new regime with a fresh start, but in the end, those hoping to get a true feel for Steve Sarkisian's brand of USC football were no more successful than the Trojans' inept offense in Saturday's yawn-inspiring spring game. All those weeks of...

  8. Kessler, Tuerk already have chemistry

    Steve Bisheff

    LOS ANGELES -- They are USC football's MVRs: Most Valuable Roommates. Cody Kessler and Max Tuerk are two blossoming leaders on offense for a Trojans team making a dramatic transition from an old-fashioned, take-your-time approach to a new-wave, hu...

  9. Can Sarkisian risk a QB controversy?

    Steve Bisheff

    Amid the many pressures Steve Sarkisian must face as the enterprising new football coach at USC, this question must be asked: Can he really risk a full-fledged quarterback controversy? Cody Kessler is the engaging incumbent at the position, pop...

  10. 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...

  12. 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 ...

  13. Thoughts from around college football

    Steve Bisheff

    They're only college football opinions, but at least they're all mine: USC quarterback Cody Kessler has been steadily improving during his redshirt sophomore season, but has he improved enough to beat the best defense he'll see all year? That's w...

  14. 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...

    Steve Bisheff

    They're only college football opinions, but at least they're all mine: • The head coach is obviously the biggest issue for USC in 2014, but what about the quarterback? Has Cody Kessler played well enough to secure the job, or will talented r...
