    • How will the Trojans survive not having a bye week for the first time since 1995?
    • Does not having a bye week hurt, or is it advantageous to have an off week ahead of a potential Pac-12 Championship Game?
    • Is this year’s schedule easier or harder than last year’s?
  • In the Q&A portion of the episode, questions from listeners include new starters making an impact in 2017, the rise of basketball player Chimezie Metu and who the Trojans would hire as a potential 10th assistant coach, should a new NCAA pass.
