So why is  USC and its once-golden boy starting quarterback Matt Barkley struggling this season? Reign of Troy's Josh Webb, taking part in a Pacific Takes round table, put the blame on a lack of discipline. "Additionally, Barkley has shown a tendency to look-in his receivers and this has allowed defensive backs to anticipate his throws. These aren't problems that Barkley should be having in his senior year and they are putting more pressure on the defense to come through in tight situations.

You had to appreciate his intentions, but...

Trojans Won't Run Away From Ducks

USC sat atop the AP preseason football poll this year. The Trojans returned Heisman frontrunner Matt Barkley, a defense that returned key players at each level and star skill players at wide receiver, running back and tight end.
