  1. 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...

  2. USC quarterback competition all but over

    Steve Bisheff

    Max Browne likely knows what's going on. You can see it in his eyes. You can read it in his body language. As much as he wants it to be different, he understands. Cody Kessler has, in all likelihood, retained his job as USC's starting quarterba...

  3. 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...

  4. 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...

  5. Find some time for the defense

    Steve Bisheff

    The first practice was on speed dial. The tempo was frenetic. The energy was palpable. The Steve Sarkisian Era opened in a blur with the new head coach happily immersed in the middle of his revolutionary -- for USC, at least -- no-huddle offense, ...

  6. 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...

  7. Bowl game offers a familiar contrast

    Steve Bisheff

    Here is the question nobody wants to ask about USC's appearance in the Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl on Saturday: Exactly how excited can the Trojans be about playing Fresno State? This is meant as no disrespect to the Bulldogs, who have enjoyed ...

  8. 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...

  9. 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...

  10. 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...

  11. Thoughts from around college football

    Steve Bisheff

    They're only college football opinions, but at least they're all mine: • I've been around the area a long time, and I think the best sporting event of the year in L.A. is always the USC-UCLA football game. • Saturday's edition of t...

  12. 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...

  13. 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...

  14. 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 ...

  15. 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...

  16. 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...
