Matt Barkley threw 20 passes against Washington and looked dreadful. He completed just 30 percent of his passes in the second half. Head coach Lane Kiffin talked about how any quarterback wouldn't be happy by throwing just 20 passes. What a difference a week makes.

USC Jersey Switching: Is Lane Kiffin Trying to Rile Up NCAA By Changing Trojans Uniform Numbers During Game?

USC Trojans head coach Lane Kiffin is many things. He is controversial, he is charismatic, he is enigmatic and he is a pretty good college football coach. But he is also pushing the envelope.

USC Trojans: Could Kiffin be fired?

I know, I know, it’s such a knee-jerk thing to say, and normally this is a rhetorical device in which I would set about disproving that this is a knee-jerk thing to say. Instead, I’ll just embrace it. The USC 39-36 loss to Arizona on Saturday was nothing short of an unmitigated disaster. But really, this whole season has been a disaster for the Trojans. They have been sloppy...
