Want to know why USC lost the game?
Turnovers (USC had 2, UT had none) and field position (most drives in the first half started inside the USC 20 yard line) combined with poor execution (drops, miss blocks, and QB taking off too soon).
Spurrier knows he has a horse back there. He reads the stat sheets after the game. But he needs to call the game the way he sees fit. He even said after the game that he should've called more pass plays and I agree. He tried to hang on for dear life at the very end instead of being aggressive like he has for almost the entire season.
repped for accuracy.

We lined up in the I-formation on the second play of the last possession we had and still got stuffed. They were stacking the box because we were not completing or even throwing any passes at that point hardly. I agree we should have lined up more in the I in the 4th quarter though.
