USC lost to UCLA, 19-2, on Saturday. The Trojans lost to the Bruins, 16-1, on Friday.
That means USC was outscored, 35-3, in two games.
Think it was a fluke? Earlier in the year, Stanford outscored USC, 34-2, in a three-game series.
USC is 18-17 overall and 6-11 in the Pac-12. The Trojans are in eighth place in the conference.
Can USC coach Dan Hubbs possibly survive this?
Even if USC fires Hubbs, who will it hire? USC seems to have no appetite for paying coaches of the lower-profile sports. Look at some hires under athletic director Lynn Swann: Women’s volleyball coach Brent Crouch came from Portland University; women’s basketball coach Mark Trakh came from New Mexico State and women’s tennis coach Alison Swain came from Williams College, which is Division III.
Does that provide some scary thoughts over the potential baseball hire?
Don’t forget last year USC got turned down by the Florida Gulf Coast women’s basketball coach. That should tell you something about how much USC is willing to play.
