This guy is awesome. I can't stand USC or Kiffin, but I will be rooting for them because of this guy.

He seems like a good dude, and he's also ridiculously freaking talented. Can't even hold the Trojan thing against him.

The North remembers.

Yep - Seems alright. Doesn't hurt that his favorite memory is playing in The Shoe & says its the loudest stadium out...

He does extra situps when he orders a vanilla shake from In-n-out.  I should take his advice.  So should have Troy Smith. 

Class of 2010.

Oh and I'd much rather see Barkley win the Heisman than you know who from you know where.

"Thanks for being here Matt. You mentioned beating Ohio State in the Shoe was one of your best memories at SC. Was that the loudest stadium you have played in?"
Barkley: "With out a doubt, Yes."

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P2DlckaNpso just stumbled across this video when looking for pictures of the McKay Center at USC... yeah, makes sense why their recruiting class is absolutely ridiculous

Such a likable guy. Very down to earth, and seems genuinely friendly. Hard not to root for him

It was a fun read.  But I was struck by some of the questions he *didn't* answer.  It made me wonder if he had a publicist sitting next to him as he was typing...

Real fans stay for Carmen.

What? It was pretty clear he didn't. It'd be pretty damn hard to answer most of those questions, it'd take a long long long time. Time Barkley doesn't have.

Yea, I'm a Matt Barkley fan after reading that. Seems like a cool guy.

I was expecting a lot of bro bombs, a la Bryce Harper.
Cool kid. I still hate USC though.

I refuse to read something that might make me like USC or their players... these comments were bad enough.  Fucking west coaster, singing in the shower, partying with Snoop at practice assholes.
