It’s no secret that USC has been one of the most disappointing teams in college football this season, and it’s also no secret that while the offense struggled early on, it’s been the defense of late which has been the problem.
As things stand the Trojans rank 66th nationally and are allowing 406 yards per game, numbers that are actually a bit deceptive when you look at the box scores of their last two losses. Do that and you’ll see that USC has given up staggering numbers against Arizona and Oregon, numbers that include 103 total points and 1,318 yards of total offense.
Clearly something has to change at USC, and apparently it is according to one USC’s lead beat writers.
That reporter is Pedro Moura, and on Thursday he tweeted some news that caught the college football world a bit by surprise: Apparently, Lane Kiffin might consider letting star wide receiver Marquise Lee get some snaps on defense.
No, seriously, Lee has been practicing on that side of the ball...
