I have said this many times since the Arizona State game and I will say it again: Jack Sears is USC’s best most dynamic quarterback and best quarterback for the current offense.
He deserves to start against Notre Dame.
I have written endlessly about Clay Helton’s shortcomings the past 2 years but he should be fired simply because of the way he handled the quarterback situation this season.
Why does JT Daniels start no matter what? Is Helton that beholden to his family? Was some deal made before Daniels came to USC?
Who cares if Daniels transfers if he gets mad because Sears starts over him?
The team prefers Sears. Everyone around the program knows this point is true.
Most fans I speak to prefer Sears. Former coaches I speak to think Sears is the best choice.
There is only one person preventing Sears from playing: Helton.
It is coaching malfeasance that Helton stubbornly starts Daniels every week. And it illustrates how USC never corrects its mistakes.
