USC Trojans Team Press Conference

Recommended Posts

:USC:

You're 1-3 so far this season - is this a rebuilding year, or does the team still have hopes of turning it around and making a playoff run?

 

We are still confident we can make the playoffs. We had two close, fluke losses and we've only gotten better since then. JP3 is progressing like magic and Furdge continues doing #JustFurdgeThings. And don't sleep on our defense, either. We have the best pass defense in the league, which is very important in this passing league. Clerk and ACB will only get better, and what we did to Garrison (18.1 passer rating, 0 TD, 2 picks) is just the beginning. This year, and in years to come, are not going to be pretty for opposing QBs. In fact, our defense is the 2nd best in the league by yards. While we have a few redzone issues sometimes, ADs who don't take our defense into play are going to get burned for it.

Huge win today over your rivals to get you back into the playoff race, but it didn’t come without some nail biters...what were your thoughts on the team deciding to pass on second and short late in the game with that 11 Point lead? 

 

Well, the game was probably out of reach by that point. But either way, here's what went down. It was a quick WR screen, designed to get the ball quickly to Ja'Wun Davis with Boyd and the LT already blocking. Oregon was playing a cover 0 man defense, which Prince correctly recognized. However, Woodson jammed Davis at the line and then jumped the route for the pick. There was nothing Prince could do; the ball was already in the air. 

So, to clarify, it was basically an extended run play that got blown up by the CB.

How do you feel the newcomers have been and how have they helped the team to a better record than most people predicted?
