In my humble opinion, cardinal and gold views from the Coliseum Press Box on what I saw, what I heard, and what I thought after UCLA totally embarrassed USC 38-20 Saturday afternoon in Los Angeles… Nobody asked me, but… After a disappointing and what now can only be described as total and complete 2023 seasonal failure - especially given the high preseason expectations with the return of 2022 Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Caleb Williams - Lincoln Riley and his team totally and utterly embarrassed the legacy and storied history of USC football with a colossal dysfunctional performance in being dominated by the UCLA Bruins, 38-20, a score not as close as the scoreboard indicated. The Trojans (7-5, 5-4 Pac-12) uninspired meltdown to UCLA (7-4, 4-4 Pac-12) before the nation on ABC and in front of a live gathering of high-valued recruits could have a long-lasting effect on the future of Lincoln Riley's young program.
