Now that Tee Martin has been stripped of play-calling duties, at least we know who to blame if the offense struggles during the final four games.
But what was Clay Helton’s reasoning for making the move? Did the offense perform worse this season? Yes.
What did Helton expect with three first-year quarterbacks and no Ronald Jones?
I’m not defending Martin but I don’t get why Lynn Swann and Helton rewarded Martin with a new contract based on the past two seasons. Something suddenly changed the past eight games?
This is all for show. Swann is trying to look engaged. Helton is trying to survive. Martin is on his way out.
And all of this was predicted, repeatedly, by me. The program is sideways. It has been for awhile. But does USC even know how to fix it?
