Presenting the War Room

In the bye week edition of the War Room we take a look at recruiting with coaches hitting the road, analyze some surprising offensive statistics, the boost in team chemistry and some more NCAA hypocrisy.

More details of what is inside:

  • The USC coaching staff is hitting the road during the bye week checking out some of the top prospects on their board.
  • Update on official visitors for the weekend of the Notre Dame game in the Coliseum.
  • The Trojans are trying to get four-star Pasadena (Calif.) Muir defensive back and Elijah Blades on campus for an official visit.
  • Is lining up under center a thing of the past for USC?
  • It is amazing what a few wins can do to boost up team chemistry.
  • The Trojans have a philosophy for attacking running quarterbacks and it has been highly effective these past three weeks.
  • Plus plenty more!
