If It's Friday, It's Time For A USC Notes Column

It’s time for Friday’s USC notes column:

How does a team that had only two practices last week so everyone could rest enter the Colorado game with linebacker Cameron Smith only 50-50 because of a strained hamstring?

And even after the two-practice bye week, USC kept its streak intact of having an offensive line starter miss at least one practice when Toa Lobendahn sat out Wednesday’s practice with back spasms.

·        It has been mentioned before but the strength-and-conditioning program really needs some investigation.

·        No wonder an NFL scout told me this week that USC plays the way it practices.

·        There is no school that could force the Pac-12 to get its act together more than USC. It resides in the biggest media market, has the most popular football program and should be the most influential/powerful conference member.

Until you consider that USC has no full-time president, an athletic director who has not led on any issue since being appointed two years ago and a coach who can’t even muster an opinion on the replay booth controversy this week.

And some people think USC should go independent? With this crew?

·        It’s amazing no Pac-12 presidents have even expressed an opinion on the replay booth controversy. But maybe not when you consider this is the Pac-12.

·        One thing to keep in mind Saturday night: Colorado has never beaten USC and is 0-12 overall. USC has outscored the Buffs, 419-169.

·        Some are saying this was the best week of practice of the season for USC. The problem is they said the same thing before the Arizona game.
