USC 44, Notre Dame 24

26 Nov 2006 /
USC Trojans

The difference in team speed between USC and Notre Dame in last night’s 44-24 Trojan victory was mind-blowing. Running backs turned the corner with ease, wide receivers blew past safeties . . .

The signature play was a 4th-quarter onside kick by the Irish, fielded by USC’s Brian Cushing — a defensive end — who ran it back 42 yards for a touchdown. No blockers . . . just ran right by everybody.

When a defensive end on the opposing squad can outrun your entire kick coverage team, well, you better believe that you are way too slow.
