While the Trojan football team spent the bye week giving some of the younger players opportunities in practice, the Trojan fan base used it to continue second guessing of many of the questionable decisions that cost USC the game against Boston College last weekend. publisher Ryan Abraham brings in resident USC experts to answer your questions about this USC football team. Coach Harvey Hyde, the former head coach at UNLV among other places, and Dan Weber, who has covered the Trojans since the start of the Pete Carroll era, pull no punches as they tackle the toughest questions Trojan fans have to offer.

At the top of the list, upset Trojan fans want to know why Steve Sarkisian should be the head coach AND the offensive play caller, something that didn't work too well for his predecessor Lane Kiffin. Should offensive coordinator Clay Helton take over play calling duties as he did last season after Kiffin was fired?

We also discuss the art of scheduling bye weeks, defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox and the defensive play calling, why the fullback position isn't utilized more and quarterback Cody Kessler’s progress this season.
