USC vs. Hawaii

After a very delicious dinner of chicken fajitas at Lupe Tortilla in H-Town I settled in to watch the USC opener.  I felt a bit numb watching the game due to the extensive penalties levied against the Trojans by the NCAA.  The whole situation just stinks.  I hope Reggie Bush and his family are proud of what they have caused.

A couple of brief thoughts on the game, which barely held my attention:

- Matt Barkley looked very sharp and much improved over last year.  He can throw a spiral now! 

- Ronald Johnson looked like a man among boys.  If he stays healthy, he should have a monster season.

- Marc Tyler was awesome.  Great vision, power and speed.  Finally, we are seeing what made him such a highly regarded recruit out of high school at Oaks Christian.

- Robert Woods could be the best true freshmen WR we've had since RJ Soward.  The sky is the limit for this kid.

- The defense was horrible.  No run defense, no pass defense.  It could get ugly when we actually play a quality opponent.

- Why was the middle linebacker Devon Kennard #42 playing pass defense 30-40 yards downfield?  Makes no sense at all.  He was burned several times.

12 hours and change until Bonaire express departs H-Town!
