I went to the USC scrimmage game today

And wow the defense is INSANE. They all fly to the ball and are relentless in bringing down the ball carrier. Rey Maualuga and Brian Cushing are HUGE. While I was there, Rey Maualuga, Shareece Wright and Drew McAllister came away with interceptions. The offense should be solid, although the defense seemed to overwhelm them at times. I was unimpressed with the QBs today, they all seemed like game managers and for the most part pretty pedestrian. On the first play for the 1st team offense, Mitch Mustain tossed an ugly interecption to Shareece Wright who took it back for the TD. True Freshman TE Blake Ayles is a star in the making, it would not suprise me if he won the Mackey award down the road, yeah, he's that good. Joe McKnight was taking snaps with the 1st team and he ran with lots of power and authority breaking the arm tackles and even running over somebody on one particular play. He looked very sharp on kick returns, it seems that he'll be a focal point on offense & special teams. If the QBs continue to play the way they did today, I expect to see a very, very heavy dose of McKnight, Stafon Johnson & Co. during the season. I'll add more later if I can think of anything else. I have some pics that I'll try and put up tomorrow....

Edit: I saw Mark Sanchez jogging on the sidelines and throwing to a couple of the receivers.

Edit #2: If you don't know Clay Matthews, familiarize yourself with that name now. This guy is my "sleeper" player to make an impact, he's a terror rushing the passer and knows how to get to the ball. I have a feeling that his name is going to pop up several times during the season.

nice, our D is going to be downright terrifying.. The good thing about our QB situation is I dont feel we have to see 200 + yds passing each wk out of our QB.. Not with the god Jesus McKnight, Stafon & them in the backfield.. Bottom line is our D aint giving up big #s so well be ok..

Even without Sanchez this year we are definitely still in the NC mix..

good info though bruh

Wow you flew all the way out to Columbia to watch the Gamecocks scrimmage. Props to you man, for the enthusiasm. B)

Forgive me but i'm not buying the whole McKnight hype. I think he'll be a 1000 yard rusher but some of you are acting like he's going to be crowned with the Heisman already.

Not once did I mention McKnight winning the Heisman. I'm just reporting what I saw with my eyes on Saturday. Take it for what it's worth man.
