LOS ANGELES -- Southern California wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster was upset.After fighting with two defenders, he walked to the other side of the practice field with cornerback Adoree Jackson in pursuit. After Smith-Schuster and Jackson spoke for several minutes, Trojans coach Clay Helton and offensive coordinator Tee Martin eventually convinced Smith-Schuster to return, though he did not participate in any drills afterwards.It was not the conventional way to build team morale, but might have been exactly what the Trojans needed after being demolished 52-6 by No. 1 Alabama.We got a mad football team right now. Wish we could play today to be honest with you. It was ultra-competitive out here today, which is a good sign as a head coach, Helton said. Id rather have it like that than the other. Saturday cant get here quick enough for us.Smith-Schuster wasnt the only one mad about an offensive performance in which USC did not score a touchdown for the first time since 1997 and was held to just 194 yards of total offense. An offensive line that returned the second-most career starts in the FBS allowed three sacks and nine tackles for loss. As the Crimson Tide was able to create consistent pressure with only four rushers, the defense could double-team Smith-Schuster, who had one reception for nine yards.Sometimes that first game lets you know where you are and where the holes are and what you got to fix, and for us it was kind of a blessing in disguise, Martin said. No, you dont want to lose in that way, you dont want to perform the way that we did, but it put the mirror in our face as to some things we got to work on and get better at.When asked what USC needed to improve on, Martin replied a lot of things.More troubling than the physical gap between USC and the defending national champions was the lack of mental fortitude to match Alabama, running back Justin Davis said. After cornerback Marlon Humphrey returned an interception 18 yards late in the first half to give Alabama a 17-3 lead, there was no belief that USC could mount a comeback.It just died down after that one mistake. We cant have that going forward, Davis said. We let the name Alabama get in our heads and then it took off. `Oh well, theyre too good. They are about to win the national championship. Thats not the case, I didnt believe at least. We had the team to go out there and compete against them for four quarters.Utah State, which travels to the Coliseum on Saturday, has the belief it can compete with USC after a 17-14 loss in 2013, a sentiment that was reinforced by the Trojans meek performance against Alabama.I definitely feel that we have an opportunity to go in there and win, Aggies defensive end Rick Aliifua said. To be quite honest, this time Im coming for blood.The intensity of Tuesdays practice was a positive sign to Davis that USC is rediscovering a winning outlook, Smith-Schusters scuffle and all.Its just that we need to keep having that something in our belly, the desire to want to be great, Davis said. I think were starting off this week great with that.Game notes LB Osa Masina and DE Don Hill will not play against Utah State, Helton said. Masina and Hill are under investigation for sexual assault, but neither player has been arrested or charged. The university is allowing Masina and Hill to attend classes, practice and participate in team meetings, Helton said.

MANCHESTER, England -- Jose Mourinho has picked fights throughout his trophy-laden coaching career, typically against soccer authorities, match officials, the media and opposing managers.Now, hes increasingly taking on his own players.The joyless, turbulent opening months of his tenure at Manchester United have been pock-marked with public outbursts against the team in general but also against specific individuals.England defender Luke Shaw has taken the brunt of it.Six weeks ago, Mourinho was openly critical of Shaws defensive work in Uniteds 3-1 loss to Watford in the Premier League. On Sunday, Shaw was one of two players -- the other being Chris Smalling -- criticized by Mourinho for failing to play through the pain for a league game against Swansea.There is a difference, Mourinho said, between the brave, who want to be there at any cost, and the ones for whom a little pain can make a difference.Usually, the Portuguese coach makes such comments after a loss or poor performance, using them as a kind of diversionary tactic in classic Mourinho style. Except on this occasion, United had just won 3-1, meaning the remarks in some respects sabotaged what had been an important win for the club after a recent run of poor form. Also, Shaw was a strange target, given the left back missed most of last season because of a broken leg and has felt discomfort since.There are other examples of Mourinhos attacks. After Uniteds 2-1 loss to Manchester City in the derby at Old Trafford on Sept. 10, Mourinho was openly critical of the displays of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Jesse Lingard, who were substituted at halftime. He also said his center backs, Daley Blind and Eric Bailly, appeared to be trying to do what I told (them) not to do.Some will argue that there is little wrong with a manager pointing out a players mistake, that the pampered modern-day player needs to have a thicker skin. Yet, a coach rarely goes down that route, at least in public.Even Alex Ferguson, Uniteds often-volatile managerial great, would protect individual players from criticism at all costs.I could criticize my team publicly, Ferguson said in his recent autobiography, but I could never castigate an individual after the game tto the media.dddddddddddd. The supporters were entitled to know when I was unhappy with a performance. But not an individual.Mourinho used to abide by this unwritten managerial code.Frank Lampard, one of Mourinhos disciples from his two spells at Chelsea, explained in 2013 how the Portuguese coach used his outbursts in the media to create a storm deliberately.But he does protect his players, Lampard said.Nowadays, it seems he does it to protect himself.Before the win at Swansea, United was eighth in the 20-team Premier League and had slipped to third place in its Europa League group following Thursdays 2-1 loss at Fenerbahce, after which Mourinho attacked his players global attitude and accused them of being fragile. This is United, the record 20-time champion of England which spent about 150 million pounds (about $185 million) on new players in the recent transfer window.Things arent going to plan for Mourinho -- he still, for example, doesnt appear to know his best team -- and its showing in his unraveling of his personal discipline.He was recently charged twice by the English Football Association, for commenting about a referee before a game and then verbally abusing a match official at halftime of a game. The latter offense meant he had to watch Uniteds victory at Swansea in the directors box rather than the dugout.He has repeatedly railed at the Einsteins in the media world who have been critical of his lineup selections and his teams displays.He even said in an interview with British broadcaster Sky Sports last month that his living situation -- he currently is staying in a Manchester hotel -- is a bit of a disaster.Its the personal attacks so early his United tenure that stick out, though, and its a worrying echo of the final days of his most recent job. His second stint at Chelsea ended sourly in December 2015, when he was fired days after saying his players had betrayed his work by defending so poorly in a 2-1 loss at Leicester.Chelsea said there had been a palpable discord between manager and players.It could be heading the same way at United.
