A report card to be proud of

There was very little to dislike about USC's performance in its rout of Washington

Right after a game ends, coaches immediately watch the film and grade their players. The grades consist of two things, mainly -- assignment and technique. Here are my position grades after Saturday's 40-17 win over Washington.

Quarterback: 88 percent (B+)
With the running game working on all cylinders, Matt Barkley got a lot of work on his running back exchanges. Barkley did a good job managing the game and making his checks at the line of scrimmage. He had a rushing touchdown and threw a couple nice balls to Marqise Lee and one to Brice Butler. There were two passes during the game that easily could have been intercepted and shifted the momentum to Washington.
