  1. Still plenty of room for improvement for USC, Sarkisian

    Steve Bisheff

    It's too bad college football, unlike major league baseball, doesn't allow a closer. The USC Trojans could sure use a Craig Kimbrel or Kenley Jansen at this point. What an entertaining and frustrating Holiday Bowl proved beyond all else, is that a...

  2. Cody Kessler would benefit from another season at USC

    Steve Bisheff

    Be smart, Cody. Stick around for another year. That's my advice for Cody Kessler if, as some believe, USC's junior quarterback is seriously considering leaving for the NFL before his senior season. Kessler apparently has requested an evaluation...

  3. George Farmer, USC reap reward in regular-season finale

    Steve Bisheff

    It was an important, face-saving kind of moment, a definite stop-the-cardinal-and-gold bleeding kind of game. Forget the fact that a depleted, injury-riddled Notre Dame team was just a shadow of its storied, shake-down-the-thunder self. Never mind...

  4. Bumbling Trojans deserved throttling

    Steve Bisheff

    So, Mr. Haden, how exactly would you assess the direction of the USC football program now? As much as we'd all like to ask Pat Haden that question today, chances are the Trojans' athletic director won't be making any public comments for a while. ...

  5. UCLA game a defining moment for Steve Sarkisian and Cody Kessler

    Steve Bisheff

    The great thing about this USC-UCLA rivalry is that it produces legacy games. Catch the winning pass, kick the dramatic last-second field goal or come off the bench to make a big play in this series, and your college football legacy is assured in ...

  6. Young Trojans need to learn to finish

    Steve Bisheff

    It's hard to believe after the way the game started, but it's OK, you can admit it. You were thinking the same thing everyone else was thinking there in the final couple of minutes on Thursday night. Oh no, not again. This can't possibly happen to...

  7. Mark Sanchez rises again

    Steve Bisheff

    This is the real Mark Sanchez. The quarterback who was whistling crisp spirals through the chilled Philadelphia air on Monday night, not the one who was struggling mightily through his final two years with the New York Jets. The confident veter...

  8. Cream puffs devoured, USC eyes bigger prizes

    Steve Bisheff

    Not to put a damper on USC's growing November enthusiasm or anything, but what exactly did that 44-17 bludgeoning of Washington State prove? The honest answer is not much, other than demonstrating that the Trojans are great at beating up on Pac-12...

  9. Sark should pay more attention to defense

    Steve Bisheff

    If it happens once, you can forgive it. If it happens twice, you begin to wonder. If it happens three times, it becomes an alarming trend. Meet USC's 2014 Trojans, masters of The Fourth Quarter Fade. Three times in four games, Steve Sarkisian's...

  10. 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...

  11. USC Trojans learn the value of a 'Buck'

    Steve Bisheff

    The value of a dollar is always in question these days, but at USC, at least, there is no denying the value of a "Buck." Javorius "Buck" Allen, the Trojans' rampaging junior tailback, was not only the best player on the field in Arizona on Saturda...

  12. 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 ...

  13. Encouraging signs from USC's Week 5 win

    Steve Bisheff

    The Hail Mary pass at the end of the first half turned the game around. Maybe it also turned around USC's season. The wildly unexpected, looping, 48-yard prayer of a spiral from Cody Kessler to Darreus Rogers in the end zone Saturday night changed...

  14. USC will have hands full with former Trojans' coaching candidate ...

    Steve Bisheff

    He is the coach who could have been. Mike Riley is the longest tenured coach in the Pac-12, and Oregon State is thrilled about that. But he might have spent all those years at USC if fate hadn't swerved, like a flashy tailback in the open field, a...

  15. It's no surprise Trojans' defense struggled

    Steve Bisheff

    If USC's sudden defensive breakdown after three games seems shocking, it shouldn't be. Not if you carefully studied Steve Sarkisian's coaching resume. Not if you observe him on the practice field, where he spends almost 95 percent of his time with...

  16. Andre Heidari, J.R. Tavai change the tone for Trojans

    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 ...
