USC Morning Buzz: If It’s Friday, It’s Time For A Notes Column

The New York Jets used the No. 3 pick to take Sam Darnold. Who did the Jets take the last time they drafted a quarterback with a top-three pick? Answer at the bottom.

Unlike Josh Rosen, who was upset when he dropped to No. 10, Darnold did not mind dropping from No. 1 to No. 3. He was asked if he had a chip on his shoulder?

“No,” he said. “I’m just going to work like I normally work. And I believe good things are going to come out of that.”

Will USC tailback Ronald Jones be drafted in the second round? I’m guessing he will be. Who thought San Diego State’s Rashaad Penny would be drafted in the first round ahead of Jones?

New York Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan said he watched Darnold play live five times last season. It would have been more but Maccagnan doesn’t get the Pac-12 Network (kidding).

The Pac-12 is thinking of going to a 20-game basketball schedule in 2019. It currently plays 18. That would mean chances USC and UCLA would skip hosting Arizona or traveling to Arizona. USC and UCLA do not visit the Arizona schools next season.

At least Clay Helton did not get outcoached at AT&T Stadium on Thursday night. For the first time!

Answer: The Jets selected Joe Namath on Nov. 24, 1964.
