USC coach Lane Kiffin was in full-on respect mode last week when he referred to Utah State as “a big-time team that doesn't have the big-time name that fans necessarily recognize, but if you put them in different uniforms you'd say, 'Wow, that's a great team.'"

No disrespect to the Aggies, but the way USC has played this year, Rock On isn’t sure Kiffin would recognize a big-time team if he saw it.
