10 Thoughts on USC v. Notre Dame:

USC got smoked by Notre Dame 49-14. It was an overall despicable game. I was looking forward to a battle between highly ranked teams. It was super discouraging to see USC shot the bed.

  1. In the beginning of the game, the Notre Dame offense was nothing but sweeps and fades. They had so much success that they were able to pound it up the middle for the rest of the game.
  2. Listening to Mike Tirico and Doug Flutie suck on the tit of Notre Dame made me sick to my stomach.
  3. Sam Darnold is schizophrenic. He is brilliant and incompetent all in the same drives. He is so talented it is maddening. Then he has two more turnovers.
  4. USC needed a big game from RoJo. He had been the bellcow the last couple of weeks. Notre Dame shut him down. USC had -4 yard rushing in the first half.
  5. USC had so many mistakes, I am not sure whether Notre Dame beat them or they beat themselves.
  6. The Jack Jones punt flub was a punch in the belly.
  7. Brandon Winbush looked like Vince Young in the Rose Bowl in 2006.
  8. The receiving corps showed up big; but it was not enough. Steven Mitchell had some big plays. Deontay Burnett had the touchdowns.
  9. Uchenno Nwosu didn’t make the impact he normally does. He didn’t have a sack or even a batted pass.
  10. I am not sure why the defense never changed their game plan. They looked like they did not plan to face a running quarterback. Maybe they were too worn out by the turnovers and offensive inefficiency to fight back.
