They're only opinions, but at least they're all mine:
• After two games, the strength of this USC team is clearly up front on defense, where Nick Perry and DaJohn Harris, in particular, have been playing at a high level. That's good, because the Trojans will need a fierce pass rush as they start meeting the quality quarterbacks on their schedule.
• Wait, wait. The NCAA says Boise State committed "numerous major violations" involving more than 75 prospects and student-athletes in five sports, and all it gets nailed for is three fewer scholarships for three years and fewer contact scrimmages during the spring? They're kidding, right?
The best way to protect a young secondary is by getting to the quarterback. Also, don't be surprised if other receivers work their way into the mix.
