You’d have been hard pressed to find somebody in the preseason who would have predicted that with one regular season game left to remaining that USC would be 7-4 and out of both the Pac-12 title race and the BCS conversation.
Yes, what seemed like a Trojan football revival in August wound up being a major disappointment in November, so the next obvious question is who is to blame?
