USC quarterback competition is still on heading into Hawaii (Photo by Gina Ferazzi/ L.A. Times)
The USC football season is approaching and the starting quarterback for the Trojans will be…
Well we don’t know that yet. Even after the Hawaii game we still might not know. USC fans may have to start considering going the first few games with both Cody Kessler and Max Wittek splitting reps.
This wouldn’t be the first time we have seen this done at a major college program. We saw Virginia Tech head coach Frank Beamer use a two quarterback system in 2007 when he used redshirt junior Sean Glennon and freshman Tyrod Taylor for most of the season. The Hookies finished the season with a respectable 11-3 record and an Orange Bowl appearance.
Most recently we saw Notre Dame start the 2012 season with two quarterbacks in Tommy Rees and Everett Golson. When one quarterback struggled, head coach Brian Kelly interchanged them and his gamble seemed to pay off. This seemed to work so well for the te...

The ice cream during practice trend continues. We’ve seen it in the NFL with the Ravens and with a college team in Rutgers but now we have USC’s All-American wide receiver Marqise Lee and head coach Lane Kiffin delivering ice cream to the Southern California marching band after their practice on Thursday afternoon. A post-practice surprise from @Lane_Kiffin & @TeamLee1...
2013 UNC Football PosterIf you check out any of the UNC Football web boards, log on to your twitter account or go on Facebook (or anything else of the like) you know that the gridiron season is about to start for the Tar Heels. Expectation and/or predictions are all over the place, from some thinking it’s going to be a season like the last four out of five, where Carolina had eight...
LOS ANGELES -- Just two days ago, USC wide receiver Marqise Lee said his injured right shoulder was "fine."
On Wednesday afternoon he said the same thing although it didn't look that way during the Trojans' third scrimmage in the Coliseum of fall camp.
Lee was going after a pass that was thrown to his side. He dove for it and landed on his right shoulder --...
The declaration was loud and clear.
Silas Redd smiled. Offensive linemen danced.
USC coach Lane Kiffin said he wanted to focus more on the run game.
Enter offensive line coach and running game coordinator Mike Summers from Kentucky, No. 5 on our list of USC Keys to Success for the 2013 season.
He joins James Cregg, giving the Trojans two offensive line coaches. They each focus...
LOS ANGELES -- The silence has broken.
And there shall be two.
USC head coach Lane Kiffin announced Saturday that Max Wittek and Cody Kessler will play at quarterback in the team's season opener at Hawaii on Thursday.
Who gets the start is still in the air. That decision won't be made until after the team arrives in Hawaii. There is also no guarantee the quarterbacks will...
USC’s All-American wide receiver Marqise Lee and coach Lane Kiffin decided to mend their little “tiff” (if you can call it that) over engaging in a kind act of delivering ice cream together to the USC marching band this week. Lee was a bit miffed that his coach had still not picked a starting quarterback and he let the media know his thoughts. Well, just one day later coach...
To further procrastinate picking a starting quarterback, USC head football coach Lane Kiffin handed out free ice cream sandwiches to the entire Spirit of Troy marching band. Kiffin, accompanied by USC star receiver and only hope Marqise Lee, drove an ice cream truck onto the band's practice field as they were finishing their day's work.
This video tells me four things...
It's been a while but it's certainly not uncommon.
Remember Aaron Corp vs. Mitch Mustain vs Matt Barkley?
How about Matt Leinart vs. Matt Cassel?
The 2013 season brings us the quarterback battle of Cody Kessler vs. Max Wittek.
And what a matchup it's turned out to be. The redshirt sophomores have gone down to the wire and are about six days away from heading into...
The Trojan Blitz, Cody Kessler & Max Wittek are co-starters, USC depth chart released, Marqise Lee injury status...
USC football head coach Lane Kiffin debuted his new coaches show, "Trojans Live," produced by FOX Sports West and featured on KFWB NEWS TALK 980 on Thursday night.
There was much debate on whether or not Kiffin would debut the show with a bang.
Perhaps, by announcing a starting quarterback?
The answer, as it was throughout every day of fall camp, was...no.
He and wide...
Oh, this is rich....and not just in an ice cream kind of way.
Check out this video of USC head football coach Lane Kiffin and star wide receiver Marqise Lee paying a visit to the USC Marching Trojan band as they wind up their practice week.
Kiffin is driving the ice cream truck, Lee the chief server.
And yes, there's a spate of wacky college...
USC head coach Lane Kiffin discusses day 19, the final day of the Trojans fall camp before preparing for their season opener on Aug. 29 at Hawaii....
Quarterbacks Max Wittek and Cody Kessler both will play for No. 24 Southern California in its season opener next week.
Coach Lane Kiffin said Saturday that he couldn't pick a starting quarterback after a full offseason of evaluation.
So both sophomores will get snaps Thursday at Hawaii. Kiffin says the coaches will decide on a starter after they arrive in Honolulu.
2014 Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco defensive end Malik Dorton announced his verbal commitment to USC head coach Lane Kiffin and the Trojans on Friday afternoon.
