Petros Papadakis, FOX college football analyst, joins Matt this week to discuss the crazy weekend of football that was. They talk about USC’s loss to crosstown rival UCLA and what this could mean for Lane Kiffin; a thought on embattled first year coach Mike Leach; and a preview of this weekend’s Territorial Cup game between ASU and Arizona.
Among his observations:
— On USC’s season: “I think it’s been an utter failure. I think that you can say that very clearly that it has been a disappointment and it’s been a failure. They were not overrated, they underachieved.”
— On the future of Mike Leach at Washington State: “He’s a different guy that runs a different type of a program… He alienated his seniors. There’s no doubt about that, but going forward I think he will have success.”
— His pick to win the Sun Devils-Wildcats game: “I like Arizona. I like any team that can play a lot of offense against Arizona State.”
