The Tampa 2 has nothing to do with defending the read option, any more than any other defense. The league just needs to adjust, as it did with the run-and-shoot, wildcat, west coast, etc.
And USC isn't sporting the talent they used to. Lane Kiffin is an idiot and a failure everywhere, and his old man couldn't save him.
