    1. Hope many, if not all, got their USC degrees…they’ve had wonderful runs in my eyes… thanks for the memories! However, it’s clear the current Trojan wide receiving core has internal challenges about spreading the football. “Well, he got this many balls, and they got this many balls,” among others. It’s like the disciples arguing who is the greatest disciple of these. You may find this parable in Luke 9: 46-49…..I won’t speak too often about our wideouts and our qb because it’s clear we have a plethora of riches at these spots and it would be disheartening to me to split hairs between them… you guys are going to have to work it out, because the more the merrier…as we rise, defenses will become more and more consternated by our army of “drones.” Please find a way to root for each other as I am rooting for all of you to make catches…I don’t have a favorite, just like to see the core be successful because I believe.


  1. Fight on, Boys! Remember that Kurt Warner was bagging groceries before his return to a HoF career. If you want it, keep going after it.


  2. Not surprised by Mama, being cut. The offensive line has been coaches into slugs over the past nine years and I doubt true talent can make up for that. Gets us line coach please.
