USC lost to Notre Dame on Saturday, but at least it was a chance to look at the classic, sexy, timeless Trojan and Irish football uniforms once again.
USC and Notre Dame did not play last year due to the pandemic. The last time the schools hadn’t played was 1945. It was good to have the Trojans and Irish return to the gridiron again, even though USC got thrashed again (as usual in 2021).
The Trojans have a lot to work on, and Mike Bohn continues to feel the enormous pressure attached to his upcoming hire. Those realities will persist for the next several weeks. Meanwhile, USC has the hope that Jaxson Dart might soon be able to return to the field at quarterback and light a fire under this team, which knows Kedon Slovis won’t be under center in 2022 under a new coach. Dart is the almost-certain QB1 on opening day of next season. He represents the future for this team and for the incoming head coach.
While you contemplate that reality, here are some images from USC-Notre Dame 2021.
