I would think after giving up 36 points and almost 600 yards to Hawaii, it would be best for the Condoms to start practicing "real" tackling. They have yet to do so in practice or real play so far...

Funny how you ridicule USC for something that UCLA is doing as well for the same reasons. USC won, UCLA lost. Who is it working better for so far?

I am correcting an error in pompous judgment made by your SC buddy the Toxic Traveler. I believe I recall him boasting a 35 point victory. And you yourself said you were pretty surprised by the lack of tackling by your Trojans.

We knew we would be in a fight against K-State, just like all the other Out-of-Conference Majors we will be playing this season!

Well then, go ahead an correct him, but your post was rather general and didn't seem to be addressed to anyone in particular, so pardon me if it seemed I jumped in, but that's why.

Also, beyond a few fans that don't know too well, Trojan Nation from the coaches to the reasonable fans were expecting our secondary to have problems with Hawaii. Obviously we didn't anticipate them to be this severe, but nevertheless we weren't all roses and sunshine about the match-up.
