Trojans stomp the Golden Bears, 41-17

Okay… maybe Clay Helton’s players want to make it hard for the new Trojan athletic director to fire their head coach.

All the coverage uses words like “power” and “obliterate” and “blowout.”

Praise was heaped on QB Kedon Slovis and receivers Michael Pittman and Drake London.

My own pet peeve with the Boys from Troy is that the defense naps in the locker room during halftime and stumbles groggily through the third quarter, waking up to pending disaster about five minutes before time runs out.

In a frustrating change-up, the offensive line snoozed while the defense stood tall. Defensive backs Greg Johnson and Isaiah Pola-Mao each picked off a pass from back-up Cal QB Devon Modster.

Trojan fans might be excused for a slightly springier step, a lopsided smile, an arched eyebrow aimed at Westwood. They need to keep a rein on hopes of steamrolling the Bruins next week, but… this is more like what the Trojans are supposed to look like!
