USC held on their final Touchdown, with a ref standing right there, no flag! Why? LEFT SIDE RUSH. A JOKE NON-CALL.

Two horrible passes.

But this was set up when Franklin wouldn't go for the kill shot.


Totally agreed....Franklin needs 4 yards to win the fuckin' game, and doesn't go with this best shot.

In the end though, this game meant nothing 'cuz college football is so fucked up with their determination of national champions.

Franklin cost his team that game. What a dumb ass. USC was sending everyone on the run blitzes leaving guys on islands. It would have been pitch and catch to put the game away.

Then with a 1:09 left, he calls a dumb fuck run which winds the clock and leaves them in 2nd and 3rd and long. Just get the ball to Barkley in space and let him break some ankles.

This was really poor coaching.

still really good for PSU in terms of recruiting. Once you can start getting the speed/skill guys in, the program evolves

They were definitely fun to watch.

I'm just pissed that with a successful finish in sight, Franklin forgot what it was that got him there.

I don't fault that call. Actually just a great play. Barkley
had the blitzing corner beat, if not for an incredible effort by the USC linebacker to get him down before getting the edge he goes for 15 yards and game over.....

sometimes the games are just great, and that was one of those times......

I agree with everyone here. Way to much time on the clock to turtle. No matter what, USC was going to have plenty of time if they got the ball back so you do everything you can to move the chains. I'm hoping this will make PSU even more hungry in the offseason.

It's very possible there could be a rematch of this game in the playoffs next year. Two young teams.

They were turtling before this, though, and USC was ready for it- they were run blitzing almost every down.

I get the play might have worked. I think a pass against the run blitz had a better chance of success.
