I spoke to a USC coach this weekend who told me some of the staff wish freshman JT Daniels would be named the starting quarterback now.
Why? Because Daniels has clearly been the best quarterback and naming a starter today would end the suspense and allow the team to prepare for the first game with its starting quarterback known.
Clay Helton said Saturday he might wait until the week of the first game to name a starter.
If USC named Daniels the starter now, it would also prevent another Max Browne scenario, where the best quarterback is not named the starter.
