Was actually rather happy I had never heard of this young man prior to picking up the late game from the W. Coast. Really had difficulty in grasping two things. USC has never been bashful at hyping any qb they believe will be All-Conference as true Heisman material. Don't really know how it happened, if he was forced in due to injury, thus not allowing the hype machine to get rolling. It's also better this way, imo. Like me, everyone else can watch him for five minutes and make the determination he's the best qb in college football.
After that first game, was able to watcfh him approximately three more times. More impressed with each viewing. Some of you guys realfy have to analyze to earn that much deserved paycheck. Is this kid really that good, and I think he is, where you realize immediately you are watching someone they simply don't produce in large quantities. They've had as many great ones as any other school I can think of. But for some reason, and like I said, you don't have to wait for the numbers, you don't have to compare him to what the kid in UT or OR does. Certainly not declaring him as the best in their history. Simply too much time until he's off to the NFL. It was not difficult to determine Woodson as our greatest db ever, probably best football player. I'm sure LSU fans knew Leonard was the best RB they've ever had play there, but qbs are football players as well, yet fans seem hesitant to make the same determination, and as I've said, its a process that leads to the conclusion.
In my opinion, Sam Darnold is better than any other Trojan qb at this point - very early in his career.Anyone want to tell me why I'm wrong? Lots of keen football minds here. Will be interested to view your takes.
Saw this another spot and wanted to bring it here for intensive analysis.
I think I am more impressed with Hurst, if I am being honest. Gary is expected.

Just a friendly reminder, get your ticket on. They are now on sale for those with at least a point.
Just saw this interview with Coach Harbaugh had with Tim Kawakami. For obvious reasons, 49ers fans miss him a lot and we're lucky to have him. He talked about how much the 3 losses hurt and are motivating him and the team, that his newborn son is doing better, and talked about Colin Kaepernick's protest.
