11:01 AM ET 03.10 | Quarterback Max Wittek sat on a table along the sideline, bags of ice wrapped around his right knee. Receiver Marqise Lee was held out after suffering a left knee injury. So evaluating USC after its first spring scrimmage at the Coliseum on Saturday was difficult. But this much appears evident after the first week of practice: Third-year sophomore Cody Kessler will seize every opportunity to challenge Wittek for the starting quarterback job, and freshman Max Browne is improving every workout. Center Max Tuerk is a work in progress after making the transition from tackle and guard. USC's defense will play a much more aggressive, blitzing scheme under new defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast than it did under Monte Kiffin. Freshman defensive back Su'a Cravens is in the mix for playing time in the fall and other early enrollees could be as well.

When a team finishes the year 7-6 (hello SPARTANS), most positions should be up for grabs in spring ball.

If Kiel couldn't compete against the ND QB's, he hasn't a chance at USC.

Could be the 3 best QBs in CFB, but it's for naught with Kiffin as HC!

I would like to see Kessler win out but I am bias because he is a home town kid and I watched him ball in high school.

Well, this is true, but how many NC's has your team won in the last 10 years???? :-)

If they're the 3 best in CFB, than Kiffin is the best coach in the country too....sigh
