Ed Orgeron is a man of his word. When named interim coach at USC following the mid-season firing of Lane Kiffin, Orgeron said he wanted to bring passion and fun back to the Trojans. On Thursday, Orgeron harkened back to his days at the University of Miami when he had the players compete is what is known as the "Trojan Bowl." It was a practice in which the first- and second-stringers served as coaches while leading walk-ons and others buried on the depth chart in a full-contact scrimmage. Junior OL Marcus Martin was named the head coach of the offense and senior LB Devon Kennard served as the head coach of the defense. "They were calling plays," Orgeron said. "Doing all kind of crazy stuff and really having fun. "I thought it was excellent. Guys got fired up for it (at Miami) just like today and we always did it during an open date." Orgeron admitted he didn't do anything of this nature in his three seasons as head coach at Ole Miss. He vowed that if he ever were to become a head coach again he would do it. With the Trojans on a bye week, Thursday provided that opportunity. -- Rahshaun Haylock of FOXSportsWest.com contributed to this report
