As we enter Thursday practice before the USC v. Washington game, the decision about who will start at quarterback for the Trojans becomes a little more clear. As previously predicted on Dreadnaught, it will be Aaron Corp. (Note: Michael Lev at USC BLOG has also made the same prediction, so I am in good company). Matt Barkley has missed his third consecutive practice, after it did not go well when he tried to throw before practice. This stems from the bruised shoulder he suffered in the victory over Ohio State. Coach Pete Carroll is expected to make the QB decision on Thursday morning. Corp was asked earlier if he was ready to play, here is his answer,
“I’m ready. I was ready last week. I was ready two weeks ago. I’ll be ready if they need me.”
We shall see who makes the start in Seattle.
While on the topic of USC quarterbacks, it appears one QB may start at another position. The starting punter position is open, and it looks like Mitch Mustain may be just the man for the job. Best of luck to Mustain, he is a stud for coming to the Trojans with so much hype and being willing to do whatever it take to help the team.
