USC coach Clay Helton spoke to reporters tonight.
On allowing 308 yards rushing: “To give over 300 yards of rushing is not us.”
On JT Daniels: “I couldn’t have been more pleased…He looked extremely comfortable. He was efficient. He was accurate.”
On the offense: “If originally you would’ve told me that we were going to start an 18-year-old quarterback and have a redshirt freshman center, and you walk out there and have 500 yards of offense and 43 points, I would’ve been very happy.”
And on three players being sent off the field by referees because they failed to meet the new NCAA uniform rules: “Didn’t know they were going to be that serious about it.”
The players apparently wore knee pads above the knee and left their knees uncovered. I said when the NCAA passed these rules it would be a nightmare for USC, which runs such a loose program.
