Matt Barkley's tone was ominous Saturday night.

After making the rounds from press conference to Gameday to treatment, he met reporters in the USC lockerroom.

Wait, treatment room? Yes.

"I don't know," Barkley said with some concern when someone asked about the third-quarter hit he took against Ohio State.

Now we find out that Barkley has a bruised shoulder. Coach Pete Carroll told the L.A. Times that his quarterback will be evaluated later in the week and that he will "go easy" on Barkley until about Tuesday.

Barkley was hit while trying to throw in USC's 18-15 victory. The hit was so significant that USC called timeout to gauge the seriousness of the injury. Backup Aaron Corp was told to warm up. Barkley was able to continue and eventually led the game-winning touchdown drive.

USC visits improving Washington on Friday.

Your right both these teams stunk up he game without a doubt. None the less it was an instance of two NFL calibur lines duking it out most of the game so no SEC, Big 12 fanfare please. It was a hard fought game, even if retribution for Ohio St was in the equation. Barkley isn't the second coming of Elmay despite what some have said, but between himself and McKnight the USC offense came together when they needed to for a hard fought win.... Les Miles 18 months ago turned down a home and home with USC, so no conference arguments. Just a hard fought game between two elite programs.

Ohio State's defense was very good and put a hurt on Matt Barkley. He said to the Buckeyes, "Bring it on." And they did. As far as Terrelle Pryor, great talent but too bad he didn't run his feet as fast as he ran his mouth. He had some wide open lanes had he chose to run. That kid still has a lot of work to do on his passing. Great game, great drama. We'll see where each team goes from here.

Boise State is a gimmick program that relies on gimmicks, blue turf, and late hits.

No one takes your football seriously.. please go back to your Div 1AA conference message board... this is the Big Boy board.

Dude I'm not really one to laugh at what a Buckeye has to say but man that was freaking funny. Laughing

Pryor didn't play a good game and he was frustrated with the loss.  His D played the game of their life against a very good team and he couldn't return the favor.  To say he isn't as mature, I don't agree - he was upset with the fact that he didn't back his D up.  OSU dominated the game and I would think most USC fans would agree that the final drive, while great, was a case of your QB not making any mistakes - your RB won the game for you and the OSU D helped a bit with some missed tackles/coverages.  2-3 TD's?  I don't know - but OSU should have won the game...and USC is going to find out they aren't a great team when they lose at least 2 games this year and then to OSU in the Rose Bowl.  The Bucks will only get better as the season goes.

Why is he more mature than Pryor? Because he walks around with his sunny, glass is half full disposition and smiles with his blonde hair? He did what everyone very well figured he'd do: beat OSU. USC had to much firepower but to OSU's credit, they held SoCal down until that one drive, notably on 2nd and 19. Is it immaturity to say you shoulda whipped someone? I mean don't you think its just the competitive spirit to want to do good, Also if you think about it, what if he woulda been like "Damn I knew we were gonna lose." Then they would question his heart. He's a 20 year old kid, give him a break, just because you're not gonna end up making millions of dollars doesn't mean you have to be an a#@%#*e.
