Remember this September quote from Clay Helton: “I can’t wait for people see where we’re at in November.”
USC is worse now than ever this season and a 10-point underdog to Notre Dame. I remember two years ago thinking USC had a small chance to beat Alabama. I feel like it has no chance to beat the Irish.
Imagine how bad USC is against these two facts:
- USC went 4-5 in the worst division of a horrible conference.
- USC did not even play Washington or Oregon.
There was a rumor within the program before the UCLA game that Helton might start Jack Sears against Notre Dame if JT Daniels struggled. But if Helton started Sears and he played well, it would make Helton look even more foolish for going with Daniels all season.
It’s all a sad joke now. Now the only thing to do is wait to see when Lynn Swann pulls the trigger. Lynn? Lynn?
How is that meeting going to be with Helton today?
Meanwhile, I have an update on a key USC coaching candidate at USC247.com today.
