04:47 PM ET 10.17 | To say USC's offense has been a disappointment this year would be an understatement. What was expected to be the the best pro-style attack in college football ranks just 57th in yards per game. There's plenty of blame to go around, but evidently the offensive line is where Lane Kiffin feels the most immediate improvements can be made. Starting left tackle Aundrey Walker will again be challenged by Max Tuerk, with Kiffin saying both will play against Colorado.

They could start a cheerleader, two nutritionists and a cafeteria lady on the O line against the Buffs and still score 30!!!

Only disappointed in how the line has played. We returned 4 of 5 starters. Some adversity at LT was expected, but aside from Khalid when he has been healthy, the rest have been uneven. Hopefully we get in gear, starting with this week. The next month is gonna be a doozy.

mid-season line overhaul at USC spells disaster.

All football teams have "mid season" overhauls one way or another, it could be because a player is not playing all that well, or due to injuries!!

Missing the center hurts more than most ppl think. The center is the one that makes the blocking calls at the line.
But, still, they are 57th because of too many teams like what we have in the Big 12 (10/9/10/9/10) and others that play that damn spread offense....

Its only going to get worse over the next few years. Line recruiting at USC the past few years has been almost as bad as at Texas but at least we have the schollys to offer kids now.

LOL, then maybe they can swap head coaches!!!! :-)

Well, at least they are winning. But they will have to pick it up for the second half of the season and start climbing the rankings....
