USC coach Clay Helton was his usual self tonight.
“I see a team that plays with tremendous effort and tremendous competitiveness,” Helton said. “The thing that stands out is the need for more consistent play.”
And then this:
“At the end of the day, I believe in this team. I believe we have the men to compete for a Pac-12 championship.”
What does that really mean in the lousy Pac-12?
And what about Aca’Cedric Ware’s comments that the practices were “lazy?”
Helton said Ware might mean Thursday’s practice, which was off for the offense. But Ware was referring to the past two weeks. So complete denial, as usual.
