Reggie Herring's nightmare

Posted By on Sat, Sep 2, 2006 at 5:55 AM

LA Times gets the Hogs' defensive coordinator to relive last year's USC debacle, a 70-17 loss:

"It was like having your dog run over, your wife left you and your house burned down," Herring said with a sad, almost country-song Southern drawl. "I won't go as far as death, because life does go on. But it was about as bad as something can happen to you in life and still be breathing. I was emotionally and spiritually beaten down." ...

"You can't get kicked any harder, any lower than what USC did to us," Herring said. "It was the worst defeat in my life. The worst job I've ever seen coaching or playing. It's a game I don't think any player or coach will ever forget. We had to carry that with us all year…. I'm glad we've got them on our schedule. We've got to face our demons. We can't run and hide."

And tonight?
