USC Sunday Buzz

Former USC wide receiver Marqise Lee suffered a potentially serious knee injury Saturday night.

“It looked bad,” Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said. “I’m waiting for the doc to tell me so I can tell you guys.  . . . But it looked bad.”

    • Meanwhile, former USC basketball player Nick Young was arrested Friday night in Hollywood. TMZ reported Young was arrested on an obstruction of justice charge after he refused to cooperate with police during a traffic stop. He was released on $10,000 bail.
    • St. John Bosco quarterback DJ Uiagalelei was 11 of 13 passing for 137 yards, three touchdowns and rushed three times for 72 yards in the Braves’ 56-0 victory over Garces.
    • Remember, USC is supposed to release a depth chart tonight. We will see if there are surprises.
    • Oh, and Ronald Jones made a catch. It was important enough for USC to tweet it.

  1. Pro football players do more to ruin their own sport than they do to help it too much. If the players can’t do better, what are people gonna have to watch? They’re playing right into the hands of others and don’t seem to get it. The coaches don’t do any better either because they’re the ones charged with inspiring the players. Please? Are there any good stewards left out there?

    2. As usual “tevie Rah-Rah has it wrong. The defender was virtually perpendicular to Lee’s body when he and Lee collided causing Lee’s planted knee to super hyperextend. At least now Lee may avoid the NFL BUST collar.

  3. Seams like the midget outplayed the big guy this week against stiffer competition going
    10-13 for 252 yds and five total touchdowns…haha. And DJ has been in the SJB system for the last two seasons while Bryce is in his first games with this team. But then what does the truth matter, or statistics, or on field performance?

      1. Oh goodness, Calabasas. Oaks Christian, Long Beach Poly, Mission Viejo, La Habra, the list is endless what’s your point? High school kids shouldn’t have the same freedom as other people. Don’t schools make exceptions for musicians or culinary arts students? Actually they do. I get it, somebody’s former school got beat by a better team.

      1. Somehow the ‘56 pink and brown Rambler would probably stick out in Clay’s neighborhood so calling would be the best bet, except he’s been blocked.

      3. I didn’t know of your plight, Maui. I thought you were referring to another Lane at first until I tuned in. I’m sure I prayed for volcano 🌋 relief as I did with the shooting in Tampa. I usually don’t publicize sacred stuff but since you crow, know this, when the roll is called up yonder, I’m fighting to get there….

  5. The hit on Lee was clean. There was no intent to harm him. The tackler would have had hit him around the hip or thigh if Lee had kept running towards the tackler. Lee instead took a step back to avoid the tackle leaving space between the tackler and Lee. This led to the tackle being lower on the body. There should have been no penalty. The tackler was going to hit with the shoulder which is taught in pee wee football.

    1. And there’s no way that hit was clean, my friend. The defender speared Marquis’ knee directly, leading with his helmet. That step back you refer to was Marquis’ simply prepping for the hit. Part of the transition here is experienced men like you denouncing hits like that. These types of penalties are rampant in my viewing of pre season pro football this summer……it’s like they refuse to listen and take heed and get better angles and position rather than drill a near defenseless area of the body, weaponizing their helmet instead of relying on it for protection.

      1. Stephan,

        After reviewing the tape several times, to me it clearly shows he is hitting Lee with the right shoulder and his head is on lee’s right side. That was perfect form tackling. This is taught in beginning football. To tackle somebody like Lee with a spear would be very difficult due to Lee being able to adjust and either go over or around the tackle.

      2. How do you explain the “still” picture above Scott displays which shows the defender’s helmet making initial contact directly on the knee?

        Like

      3. Undoctored clear, “still” pictures are a higher standard of evidence than real time videos. While we must consider both, the video on a split second ricochet does not adequately display the initial contact sometimes to the naked eye. NFL replays illustrate this frequently when they stop the replay tape at point of impact or touch and settle on the “still” shot as the basis for the final verdict. With new rules, new teaching is required because “old school” teaching insufficient to account for the new rules.

  6. As for the helmet hit on Lee I blame Teddy Roosevelt. He changed football rules the same way he tried to legislate spelling. Altho sum of his selling rools made senz.
    If a player is a professional, he should know tackling is done with shoulders not heads.
