The War Room - bye week

In the bye week edition of the War Room we talk about the Trojan assistant coaches hitting the road recruiting before practice resumes this weekend.

More details of what is inside:

  • Did you know USC's odds to win the BCS Championship are 35 to 1 despite that loss to Stanford?
  • With two days off from football practice, the USC assistant coaches are on a mad scramble across the country to see a mix of committed and uncommitted prospects.
  • The future of USC signee from Ann Arbor (Mich.) Skyline High School Daelin Hayes.
  • The Trojans are looking high and low across the country for some big defensive linemen prospects, but to get any of those guys to move to Los Angeles, Steve Sarkisian needs to recruit the players' mothers as well.
  • What changed for the Trojans seeing their third down conversion rate go up significantly in the Arizona State game?
  • Many USC fans were thinking the season was over following the loss to Stanford, but some national analysts out there still feel the Trojans are the team to beat in the Pac-12.
  • The USC defensive line used an interesting technique in an attempt to get more pressure on the quarterback in the Arizona State game.
  • Plus plenty more!
