the Trojans joined the Sun Belt in 2004.

get back where we've had it the whole time. We'll try and see what
happens tomorrow morning, we'll probably lighten it up a little bit. Try

morning at 11.
On what the coaches will be looking for in Saturday's scrimmage
speed. Physical. Yes, I want to be good on offense and I want to be
good on defense, but we are playing each other. Full speed, physical,
who want to win - we are going to try and identify those people.
On what point in camp are the players are tired of hitting each other
today. We've got a long time and a lot of preparation left to take care
of it. We've got to keep working. We're not good enough to take
a day off.
