    Didnt mean to come off as Garrett had nothing to do with it but ultimately if this doesnt work the masses will blame Jerry not Garrett. If it works maybe Garrett will get the credit but I suspect it would be Kiffin. Jerry or Jason cant seem to catch a break with some.

    Everybody keeps saying this, but the numbers simply don't back it up.

    USC's defense wasn't top tier like it was before the NCAA sanctions, but it was still above average in the PAC-12, and in the top 3rd of FBS teams. And for all the wailing about his performance against Chip Kelly, Oregon's numbers against USC were almost identical to their average numbers against everybody else. But USC was also one of just 7 teams to hold Oregon under 36 points in any game during Kiffin's tenure, and one of just 4 teams to actually beat them.

    Bottom line: USC's defense was okay, not great. Perhaps disappointing by that program's standards, sure -- but nowhere near as bad as people seem to think.

    I do too! This one makes me grin from ear to ear. No matter who is to be credited for putting it together. As a fan, I like it. It will help improve my team. That's all I care about. :star:

    Sorry, but your abundant use of smilies, periods, frat boy slang, and capital letters was not as convincing to me as actual facts. If you have anything substantive to contribute to the conversation, feel free to put down the sippy cup and join us at the big kids' table.

    USC is what it is. They ranked in the top 3rd of FBS teams, and did almost exactly as well against Chip Kelly as Oregon's average opponent, even when you include that 62 point game. Go ahead -- name 4 defensive coordinators who, in any game during Kiffin's tenure, have beaten Oregon and held them under 36 points.

    It has to do with the Dallas Cowboys. The team that until 2 days ago you said no good coach would come to.

    49ers = 2nd in scoring D, 6th in opponent QB rating
    Falcons = 5th in scoring D, 5th in opponent QB rating
    Patriots = 9th in scoring D, 17th in opponent QB rating
    Ravens = 12th in scoring D, 11th in opponent QB rating

    Cowboys = 24th in scoring D, 29th in opponent QB rating

    Yeah, I'd say our D need to get better. Football is a team sport.

    The offense needs to get better, everyone knows that.

    But, the Cowboys are working on the defense right now. I bet they will start working on the offense next.

    Yep. Fix the OL and you fix the offense. Simple as that, in my opinion.

    Much easier said than done... there's about 20 NFL teams right now that would love an upgraded OL, and it's not going to happen for everyone.

    .......U$C is the GOLD STANDARD of college programs and fertile recruiting areas. THere is NO way they should have been as bad as they were. Just ask an $C fan or alum and they were ecstatic to see him go. This move is laughable and for you to defend it this vehemently is borderline ********. If he was so good, he wouldn't have been shown the door: WHICH HE WAS. I love the spin by apologists on here that his tool of a son is at fault. Maybe so, but he was right there with him. Those are the facts.


    Sincerely,



    A REALIST:lmao2:
