Matt Barkley is back, but the Trojans' "A" game isn't.

As reassuring as it was to see USC's quarterback perform like a Heisman Trophy candidate again and to have Lane Kiffin remember his guys actually are capable of throwing and catching long passes, the lingering feeling after the 38-28 victory at Utah was that we still haven't seen this team play anywhere near its capabilities.
