It is a new regime with a fresh start, but in the end, those hoping to get a true feel for Steve Sarkisian’s brand of USC football were no more successful than the Trojans’ inept offense in Saturday’s yawn-inspiring spring game.
All those weeks of uptempo, no-huddle practice led to that? Really?
We all know the priority was to not get anyone seriously hurt on Saturday. But you don’t come out in front of some 17,000 fans on a sun-splashed afternoon in the Coliseum and offer little, if any, excitement. You don’t finish the day without scoring even one touchdown.
