USC rattles Mannion

The only thing I can say about the loss to USC was that Mannion looked like a freshman. 

He stayed in school because the NFL forecasted him getting drafted in 3rd round or later. After Saturday's game, he''ll be lucky to get drafted in the 5th round. USC is not that good, even if they are good, a Senior QB with credentials should carve them up. This sucks because Sean is a good kid.

I am still optimistic about OSU's season, but I am kinda bummed that Mannion hurt himself. He is a good kid, dedicated to OSU's success. If character and heart meant something in the NFL, then he should be a 1st round pick. 

That said, I am not happy with Garrett's OC and QB work. Mannion should be prep'd better. Stress tested better. Pushed harder. His fundamentals should be tight. So should his mentality. Mannion should feel like he can conquer the world. Regardless of opponent. 

I wasn't happy about the hail mary, but the defense played hard. To the point that USC got dirty and went for the knee's of OSU's defensive lineman repeatedly. We lost 3 DL's in the game.
