Among the more intriguing facets of Steve Sarkisian's hire as USC head coach is the installation of a new offensive philosophy. Long stalwarts of the pro-style, the Trojans have spent spring practices laying the foundation for a hurry-up, no-huddle scheme that could transform the program's identity.
USC has the talent to make it work, and according to Sarkisian, the pieces are coming into place in time for the start of the 2014 season.
"Believe me, these practices are harder than the games," he said, via USCTrojans.com. "They'll be in great shape when September rolls around, they'll be ready to play."
