Corp or Barkley?

Posted on: September 17, 2009 11:16 pm
 
For the first time this week Matt Barkley threw in practice, although it was lightly and on the side.

Aaron Corp took all the snaps with the first team in Thursday's practice. Pete Carroll is playing it down the middle as to who will start but you can see that it might be nothing but gamesmanship at this point. In my humble opinion, it would be hard for Barkley to start at Washington having not thrown much all week.

There's always the chance that even if Barkley can go, there might be some shoulder weakness. Plus, Corp has earned the start if only because he won the job out of spring practice. A cracked bone in his knee created the opening that Barkley needed to win the job.

Either way, USC might have the best quarterback situation in the country. The guy with the most experience on the roster, No. 3 quarterback Mitch Mustain, is being worked out at punter. Billy O'Malley hasn't exactly distinguished himself in the first two games with something like a 35-yard average.

It will be interesting. Washington coach Steve Sarkisian helped recruit both Corp and Barkley. He coached Corp until taking the Washington job.

Carroll just won another big one. It's the little ones that have been giving him trouble lately.

Corp will be a threat, just like Locker.  He can run and throw the ball..the only difference, will be that Locker is more of a veteran.  Locker does not have the machine that is SC, so that where we have the advantage.  

I made a couple of corrections

Aaron Corp will start tommorrow...this according to sources.  He is ready, he is prepared to be in the USC 'lime-light'.  If Corp does a great job against U Dub, I mean 4 TD passes and maybe one running, he could possibly be considered as the starter for the next game.  I do feel for him, and Mustain, but Carroll is the great competitor, and wants his Trojans to beleive in the same ideals.  Fight for what you want...be the best so the team can win....I said team.

FIGHT ON!

Mustain for rest of year and they go undefeated-----now that would be a shock, in a good way, to college football.
