Pac 12 Football Teams USC vs Utah
The difference in Press Conferences is very dramatic. One team USC back on the winning track after blasting California over the weekend and Utah reeling from the diabolical against Arizona State. From ESPN’s Pac12 Blog
On Tuesday, Trojans coach Lane Kiffin fielded a question on the Pac-12 coaches teleconference, waited patiently for 30 or so seconds, then bolted because the reporters on hand had nothing else for him. That’s what happens when a so-called national title contender goes down hard in Week 3.
To summarize what Whittingham said: The pass defense was bad because Sun Devils receivers were wide open. The run defense was “sub-par” and “not very fundamentally sound at times.”
The offense? It couldn’t do anything. Said Whittingham, “We had no answer for their pressures.”
Utah was outgained 512 yards to 209 by the Sun Devils, a South Division rival. That doesn’t hint at a team that’s going to be competing at the top of the division.
