07:42 AM ET 02.14 | Steve Sarkisian may miss taking a boat to the office, but he's thrilled to be selling Southern Cal's program -- even if there are some question marks at quarterback. "Guys are going to get an opportunity to compete. I think it's a great opportunity for [Max Browne] to feel like there's a crack in the door and let's see how far he can take it. I think it's a unique opportunity for [Cody Kessler] to continue to improve because Max is going to give him all he's got. If that's the case, that's when you play really good football. That's when you get pushed to the highest levels. I know those two guys are going to compete like crazy, along with Jalen Greene, a kid we got mid-year who I have high aspirations for. I think for everybody on our roster, with a clean slate on which to compete, is going to be special."

Good morning, ICE.

Just sounds like a made up name. Cody Kessler. That should be the name of the main character of a book battling Russian mobsters to keep them from selling nuclear material to muslim terrorists.

"Special" QB race like "you've never seen anything like it special" or "little yellow bus special" because I didn't see anything from anybody last year that was particularly "special." Word to your mom: play Browne.

Translation: You reporters are gill-netting for something to write about. As I am the new head coach of the USC Trojans, I'm a tempting target. Well, it's part of my job to feed you, and it can improve perceptions of my leading this program (That's a crap shoot, as you'll write whatever will get you the most notice). So, with Spring practice looming, here's a bit of word smithery for your consumption. Hopefully, you'll appreciate the effort to state something other than the tried and trite, "The competition to be the starting quarterback is wide open." Thank you, and please, write good stuff about USC.
