James Franklin On USC Job

With college football pundits throwing Penn State coach James Franklin’s name around as a USC candidate, here is what Franklin said today:

“It’s that time of year where all this stuff happens. It’s the crazy, mad time of year. As you guys know, we’re focused on Maryland, completely 100 percent. I don’t think it’s fair or right to be talking about that job, from everything I understand about it. We’re completely focused on Maryland.”

  1. Also, if SC keeps Helton for another year and tries to hire a bunch of new assistants, that will never work! Not with him in command. Who would want to come work with him. Brian Kelly was a different situation. He has a different mindset. Helton is too nice to be a head football coach period!

      1. Hey I loathe that pig illegitimate child ‘Brain Kelly’ …. ‘but’ he did what that back end of a horses’ rear Helton never would do – he sacked the entire assistant staff and …. voila …those frauds are now 11 – 0…. ‘blank’ Helton and his inability to make any real decisions that are specifically aimed at raising USC football!

        ‘blank’ Helton and anyone …. who rationalizes what a lousy clown he truly is

  2. He hasn’t even established himself at Penn State. Poor defense. I watched him melt down against Ohio State this year during the game, and afterwards in his comments……no way.

      1. I recall his effort comments pre game and half against USC when, he, and many others, thought they had the better team: arrogant mouthpiece…too much show, no go…OUT!

      3. Geez: Jack Del Rio, David Shaw and Kyle Whittingham way better than James Franklin. I would even consider Dave Aranda before James Franklin. THE ONLY REASON I PUT IT THAT WAY IS HE HASNT BEEN A HEAD COACH YET! THAT HAS ITS ADVANTAGES, TOO….

      4. James Franklin COULDN’T BEAT Clay Helton!!!! Happened right before Trojan Nation’s eyes!!!!! Now, you’re going to try and sell us that same coach, REPACKAGED? IN FACT, they’re the same guys, practically! You gotta find someone who can stare down Chip Kelly, first!

    1. If Lame Duck Swan was smart (and he’s not) he would bring The Wolfman on staff as a consultant.
      As a SoCal Alumni and graduate of the school of journalism, he knows the Athletic Department better than anyone and could bring both insight and clarity (compliance?) to this dumpster fire.

      1. Wolf can have a wing in the Journalism School, with his name on the wall, and even a professorship. But, best to stick to the sidelines in sports, so everyone can breathe easier. In return for laying off, he gets: The Scott Wolf School of Ethics.

      2. That way, he won’t have to use all these pen names. It’s unfair, but house rules, I guess. I used to love blackjack, but not with a loaded deck.

  3. @Stephen McGhghy, Yes, I agree with you keep Helton no way on Franklin! Southern cal only wants old white guys who will continue the undisciplined football at the clown college!

    1. Hey Teddy,

      You are so dumb. SC had ahead coach with Asian Minor decent. His name is Sarkisian and he is Aremenian and was young at the time. So your reference to just wanting old white guys is very stupid.

      2. Did I say “Old White Guys”? I meant “A$$holes” Southern Cal AD is a di*k! Swann is reckless, arrogant, stupid di*k. And the Southern Cal fans are p*ssies. And Southern Cal coaches are a$$holes. P*ssies don’t like di*k, because p*ssies get f@cked by di*k. But di*k also fuck a$$holes – a$$holes who just want to sh*t on everything. P*ssies may think they can deal with a$$holes their way, but the only thing that can f@ck an a$$hole is a di*k, with some balls. The problem with di*k is that sometimes they f@ck too much, or f@ck when it isn’t appropriate – and it takes a p*ssy to show ’em that. But sometimes p*ssies get so full of sh*t that they become a$$holes themselves, because p*ssies are only an inch-and-a-half away from a$$holes. I don’t know much in this crazy, crazy world, but I do know that if you don’t let Swann f@ck this asshole, we are going to have di*k and p*ssies all covered in sh*t.

  4. At Penn State, Franklin has to deal with OSU, Michigan, Wisconsin, on a regular basis. With SC’s talent, the Pac-12 would be so much easier for him.

    1. Then, why didn’t he beat Clay Helton? Sam Darnold wasn’t playing defense….PAC 12 teams will end up in see saw games regularly…USC needs a more complete coach, than James Franklin…He hasn’t ever shown a near elite defense, and that was always a staple at Penn State.

      1. His teams get outhit in big games, just like USC does now, which aggravates everyone, and leaves us short of the NATIONAL TITLE PICTURES NOW.

      2. I understand, but it seems a lateral move. Trojan fans are tired of being pushed around, Alabama is rehabbing our head coaches, while crushing our team. We need someone who can check that, and make a stand, not only on offense, but defense. Please bring in that.

      3. Franklin’s not even doing that in his own league, and Penn State’s got the 2nd largest stadium in America. They’re not exactly the sisters of the poor.

  5. It sounds like a fair trade, we get Franklin and they get Helton. Nothing changes but at least we’d have a new person to complain about.
    But did anybody here, hear about a go fund me page to get rid of Helton?
    The thing they want to pay for is a full page ad and a banner towed over the coliseum. Might be worth the money 💰💰💰. But no buyout cash.

  6. Del Rio or Fisher far more desirable than Franklin (who would be a Larry Smith-like mistake, following Helton, who has proven to be a Tollner-like mistake). My preference would still be Todd Haley, but realize I’m on an island on that one.
