I know Carroll is gone but it just feels like SC is such a great team on offense for college but not so much in the pros. Hope I am wrong unless KC picks him up.
I like Barkley more than any of the other USC QB's. Sanchez was a one year wonder, Leinart loved women more than football plus he had like 5 or 6 NFL starters on his offense (one being a heisman winner) so of course he couldn't look bad. As for Palmer, he was nothing special until his last year.
I think Barkley has the "it" factor. He's been impressive every year at USC and I'm very happy he stayed to develop all 4 years. He seems like a great kid and a good leader.
He may not have the body of Carson Palmer, but I like his intangibles more.
I think he's gonna be a franchise QB someday. As a Chiefs fan I hope it's with us of course
