Presenting the War Room

It’s our quick turnaround edition of the War Room going up just hours after the Trojans defeated the California Golden Bears in the Coliseum.

More details of what is inside:

  • Fresno (Calif.) four-star cornerback Jaylon Johnson will announce his commitment later today. Is that good or bad for USC?
  • The latest we are hearing on Las Vegas (Calif.) four-star defensive tackle Greg Rogers and his pending commitment announcement.
  • A list of recruits who were in the Coliseum checking out the game.
  • USC’s defense was up to the task against the Bear Raid Cal offense.
  • Did the Pac-12 scheduling snafu doom the Bears before the game was even played?
  • How does Sam Darnold running the offense help the defense?
  • There is an interesting new trend for some of the guys on the team – “golds.”
  • There was a bit of a cornerback meltdown in the second half against Cal.
  • Plus plenty more!
