  1. 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...

    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 ...

  3. USC will go as far as freshmen take them

    Steve Bisheff

    Maybe we should just call them Kids-R-Us. Everyone knew USC had some excellent freshman prospects, but nobody expected them to make this kind of impact, especially in the first game of the season. But there they were on Saturday in the middle o...

  4. 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. After 3 years, Farmer finally flourishing

    Steve Bisheff

    For four years at USC, George Farmer has been an elusive butterfly of potential, flitting toward a shard of the spotlight here, fluttering toward the edge of darkness there. He arrived as the most touted of all Serra High prospects, faster than Ro...

  7. 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...

  8. Steve Sarkisian, Chris Petersen are linked

    Steve Bisheff

    There they were, sitting together for an ESPN SportsCenter interview the other day, Steve Sarkisian and Chris Petersen. The new head coach at USC, and the coach who might have been. The former head coach at the University of Washington, and the co...

  9. 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...

  10. 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...

  11. 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...

  12. Can Sarkisian risk a QB controversy?

  13. 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...

  14. 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...

  15. 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...

  16. 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...
