^^^naaah, these are NOT the Sam Cunningham Trojans.
If these Trojans were being coached by Pete Carroll, John Robinson, or any of the other SoCal coaching legends, I’d say get ready for, arguably, one of the signature games of the ‘20 season. But we are faaaar removed from any of the legends.
I’m afraid for the Trojan faithful, Saban will use the opener to make a statement. Any season ending for him that does NOT include participation in the CFP is a down year for him. And, trust, Ole Nick is PISSED about how things turned out this past season.
But you know what, if I’m a Trojan fan, I like the “timing” of this game. Because at least you’ll know from the JUMP what kind of season it’ll be. Oh, well...........
