Some selected quotes from Lane Kiffin's Sunday night conference call following the Trojans' 50-6 victory over Colorado. Open: "Overall, a really good day -- a really special day for all Trojans I think, [for] all Trojan fans.
LOS ANGELES -- USC Trojans coach Lane Kiffin addressed the media in his normal day-after game conference call Sunday night, talking about his team's 50-6 win over Colorado and briefly looking ahead at the remaining five regular-season games.
USC coach Lane Kiffin could be looking to make some changes in the starting lineup at the cornerback spot currently manned by Torin Harris. The Trojans have used Harris and Anthony Brown in that spot at various points this season -- along with reserves such as Brian Baucham and Kevon Seymour -- but opponents have continued to have success against whoever lines up opposite Nickell Robey.

LOS ANGELES -- The Trojans practiced under beautiful conditions out on Brian Kennedy/Howard Jones field once again on Wednesday, and there was a definite upbeat tone on the day for what turned out to be a sharp practice, particularly on the offensive side of the ball -- a positive sign considering how the Trojans struggled in that department against Stanford.
The Trojans hit the field on Tuesday to prepare for their Pac-12 opener at Stanford this Saturday, and while much of the media attention has focused on USC's three-game losing streak to the Cardinal -- in particular last season's 56-48 triple overtime loss -- quarterback Matt Barkley commented afterward that the team is only focused on the task at hand.
D-line encouragement: It's no secret that one of the biggest concerns for the Trojans heading into the season was the lack of experience along the defensive line, a situation that wasn't helped when Wes Horton was forced to miss the game.
