Now we all can take a deep breath and realize preseason polls, and the polls by AP and USA Today are a total joke. I already knew this....USC is a middle of the pack team in the PAC 12 and a 3 to 4 loss team this year. How anyone thought these guys with 3 stud offense players was a complete enough team to be ranked 1 or 2 is beyond me. I agree that their QB is agood and Woods and Lee are weapons....but what else???
Yeah I laid the wood here based on a bad Utah offense against a Monte Kiffen defense (held them to 14 points basically) and the fact USC would want to showcase their talent on national TV and regain creditbility against a very beatable team, even on the road..and yes 2 turnovers inside the 10 yard line in the first 3 minutes of the game converted into 14 points was the difference here...but USC should man handle a team like Utah...Utah State did....Hmmm...care ful with your dollars wagered on USC...Oregon is 14 points better minimum....
Lane Kiffen is a BAD coach...arrogant, and an offensive coordinator at best. His halftime interview before going onto the lockeroom was an example of a man who is clueless....all you Tennessee fans should be elated he is not in Knoxville or you would be worse off than what are now!
I know for a fact when Frank Solich was coaching at Nebraska, his coaches poll was not filled out by him...but an assistant SID...coaches for the most part do not engage themselves in their poll vote....for what it is worth...

That Beast Nose Tackle from Utah made USCs Center look stupid.
