Matt Barkley's Heisman hopes were supposedly left somewhere on The Farm with USC's 21-14 loss to Stanford two weeks ago.
If they weren't lost there, they were sucked up in the 296 yards on the ground the Trojans churned out against Cal, allegedly. Barkley finished with 192 yards through the air.
Clearly, Barkley's stats --or anyone else's-- aren't at the forefront for the Trojans or head coach Lane Kiffin. He said so himself.
"We're about winning and we're going to do things to make sure that we're winning games and that we're not worried about somebody's individual stats," Kiffin said. "It's going to happen and we're not going to force things just to get people numbers."
When it comes to stats in general, Kiffin addressed the situation with Curtis McNeal, Silas Redd, Robert Woods, Marqise Lee and Barkley before the start of the season, just to make it clear where the emphasis was going to be.
