In this edition of the Peristyle Podcast hosts Ryan Abraham and new USCFootball.com senior staff writer Connor Morrissette are in studio LIVE talking about the unfortunate injury to USC offensive guard Gino Quinones. After Tuesday's practice of Stanford week head coach Lincoln Riley told the media that Quinones suffered a lower leg injury and was going to be out for the season. The guys talk about Quinones not only being on the short list to start at one of the guard spots but also his important role as the backup center to veteran Justin Dedich.
They also discuss what the players and coaches had to say about facing this new-look Stanford team led by new head coach Troy Taylor and how this is potentially the last time these two rivals play for a long time with USC heading to the Big Ten and Stanford going off to the ACC in 2024.
Defensive coordinator Alex Grinch also spoke on Tuesday and the guys talk about some of the defensive improvements they have seen and some of the standout players that Grinch talked about. They also talk about how linebackers Shane Lee and Raesjon Davis stepped up and what Grinch wants to see freshman linebacker Tackett Curtis do differently after being ejected for targeting.
Looking ahead to Stanford, Ryan and Connor give their initial thoughts on the Trojans first conference game of the season, facing a potentially dangerous opponent that just got a road win at Hawaii last weekend.
