The TRUTH about Sports

I AM MATT BARKLEY

This is the Matt Barkley we have all been waiting for, the one Pete Carroll had a hard-on for.  257 passing yards, 5 touchdowns, no picks.  Thanks for coming, let’s get back home.  The USC offense was on fire today.  Sure, the Warriors defense was nonexistent but still, you have to give credit to Lane Kiffin and his offense.  The O-line was dominant, giving Barkley as much time as he needed.  Every single pass was on point.  I can’t wait to see what this guy does against the Pac-10.  What I’m worried about is the Trojans D.  SC hadn’t tackled in practice and it showed today.  I’ve never seen so many missed tackles, since, well last season.  The SC secondary was horrible. One pass interference call after another.  Didn’t someone teach these guys to turn and look at the ball when covering their men? As for the D-line, how about some pressure.  These guys looked sluggish all game long, especially in the 2nd half.  True, it seemed like they were on the field a lot more than the offense was but still, these are supposed to be marquee blue-chip players.  Nevertheless, glad we got the win.  Happy for Lane Kiffin.  Happy for Matt Barkley and the 8 different receivers he threw to.  Happy for the SC running game. It’s gonna be a great season.

  1. Barkley has excelled this season against some pretty good competition so far. If USC wasnt on probation this year, he would be going more press for his accomplishments.
