As we ended Part 1, we introduced “the Cody Kessler conversation”. Reign of Troy and What’s Bruin Show have a very honest exchange about USC’s quarterback as we talk about what Kessler has done and what he can realistically do for the Trojans.

We then talk about Josh Rosen‘s potential leading the UCLA Football team this season and what becomes of him as a true freshman commanding one of the top teams in the nation. A Matt Barkley comparison is thrown in, but in a good way.

We then talk about the Pac-12 as a whole as we tackle some hot topics in the conference. After all that chatter, we then then give our Pac-12 predictions which could surprise a lot of Pac-12 football fans.

We then take a cue from Reign of Troy and do one of their segments, This or That. In return, we ask Michael and Alicia, “What’s Bruin, er, Trojan with you?”
