The Kind of Football Only a Fan Can Loathe

October 18, 1986

I was wondering how long the mirage would last. Those impostors who were pretending to play like real Trojans are back playing the typical Ted Tollner football we USC fans have come to expect and loathe. Countless mistakes, including numerous fumbles, stupid personal fouls, breakdowns in blocking and pass coverage, in addition to a total lack of discipline and fundamental soundness.

This is due to a total lack of coaching. You don't see Don James' teams self-destruct like this. With Arizona State, Stanford, Arizona, UCLA and Notre Dame left on the schedule, Tollner still has a chance to have another losing season before he's fired.
