Here’s another example of when does hype meet reality?
We keep hearing from everyone at USC that wide receiver Randal Grimes is talented and dangerous. Not to mention tall (6-4).
So why doesn’t he play?
Is he not good enough? If not, why is there so much praise for him in the offseason? The problem is once the season starts, the coaches do not tend to answer questions honestly about why specific players are not playing. So instead, the hype simply remains unfulfilled.
- USC quarterback coach Bryan Ellis said after JT Daniels’ first career touchdown pass, a 43-yarder to Amon-Ra St. Brown, that Daniels matter-of-factly went back to the sideline and said, “Nice call, coach.”
So does that mean Ellis called the play?
- Former USC wide receiver Darreus Rogers signed with the San Diego franchise of the Alliance of American Football league.
