OSU wins a close game, and Pryor is the difference. Won't hurt that they are in the Shoe...

Carroll is going to have to coach up his new O/D Coordinators while also working the new kid. Later in the season, you'll see a better product by USC, but I think in the early going, they're in trouble. This time around, Pryor will have an offense that's actually geared around his ball-skills (which should be similar to what Troy Smith was using his Heisman year).
Yes, I am. The point that was originally made was that OSU has been the only bright spot and that's simply not the case.

And I think Pryor is the difference, but not in the way you guys think.

OSU has been a steady headlight...whereas the other teams have been blinking christmas lights. Pretty at times...but generally not what you need to light your path going forward.

I think you underestimate Pryor.

Maybe I do. But based on last season, I don't think so.

Last season he was thrust into a lineup early...with an offense designed around Todd's skill set.

The offense has been tweaked to fit his skills.

Great....so it's going to take him some time to adjust as well right.

The X factor here is Taylor Mays. His presnece is going to go a long way to neutralize Pryor.

They began the tweaking last season...and he's already had a full spring camp (as well as current practices.) He has less of an adjustment period than the kid from USC (who needs to get a good feel for the speed of the game at a top-notch collegiate school.)

I don't care about Corp. Pryor still has to deal with Mays and USC defense. I don't think he's up to the task.

You're entitled to your opinion (and being wrong.) It's your God given right.

How many linebackers on the current USC roster started last season?

USC's backups are better than most team's starters.
