Quick hitters: Redd ready?

LOS ANGELES -- They're only college football opinions, but at least they're all mine:

• Maybe it's only me, but it seems the status of injured Trojans tailback Silas Redd has been underplayed all week. Redd went out in the second half at Utah and never returned. How much he plays in Seattle could be pivotal.

• A little dose of reality for Matt Barkley: Magazine editor Phil Steele's mid-season All-American team is out, going four units deep. Four quarterbacks were picked, none of them named Barkley.
