I am not necessarily asking for an Arkansas or Georgia Tech game plan, but this was a situation where you had to at least make USC prove it could stop the run and try to keep your defense off the field and limit possessions. Yet we give the ball to Folston a whopping 4 times and Bryant was given 7 carries for the entire game, despite looking great -- and we only did most of this after the game had already gotten out of hand. That is simply criminal negligence -- especially against a team very susceptible to an inside running game.

Here's our first 4 possessions:

1st and 10 at ND 25 Tarean Folston run for 1 yd to the NDame 26
2nd and 9 at ND 26 NOTRE DAME Penalty, Delay of Game (-5 Yards) to the NDame 21
2nd and 14 at ND 21 Everett Golson pass incomplete to William Fuller
3rd and 14 at ND 21 Everett Golson pass incomplete
4th and 14 at ND 21 Kyle Brindza punt for 47 yds, fair catch by Nelson Agholor at the USC 32

1st and 10 at ND 20 Everett Golson pass complete to Corey Robinson for 10 yds to the NDame 30 for a 1ST down
1st and 10 at ND 30 C.J. Prosise run for 4 yds to the NDame 34
2nd and 6 at ND 34 Everett Golson pass incomplete to Ben Koyack
3rd and 6 at ND 34 Everett Golson pass complete to Amir Carlisle for 14 yds to the NDame 48 for a 1ST down
1st and 10 at ND 48 Everett Golson pass incomplete to Torii Hunter Jr.
2nd and 10 at ND 48 Everett Golson pass incomplete to Torii Hunter Jr.
3rd and 10 at ND 48 Everett Golson pass incomplete to William Fuller
4th and 10 at ND 48 Kyle Brindza punt for 52 yds for a touchback

1st and 10 at ND 18 Everett Golson pass complete to Corey Robinson for 5 yds to the NDame 23
2nd and 5 at ND 23 TEAM run for a loss of 8 yards to the NDame 15 TEAM fumbled, recovered by NDame Everett Golson
3rd and 13 at ND 15 Everett Golson pass incomplete to William Fuller
4th and 13 at ND 15 Kyle Brindza punt for 36 yds, fair catch by Nelson Agholor at the USC 49

1st and 10 at ND 25 Everett Golson pass complete to Chris Brown for 4 yds to the NDame 29
2nd and 6 at ND 29 Everett Golson pass incomplete to Amir Carlisle
3rd and 6 at ND 29 Everett Golson sacked by J.R. Tavai and Claude Pelon for a loss of 5 yards to the NDame 24
4th and 11 at ND 24 Kyle Brindza punt for 31 yds, punt out-of-bounds at the USC 45

This is what disaster looks like. If there's a lack of discipline here, it's the play caller's.
