I realize USC does not start the spring semester until Monday so Lynn Swann might be on an extended golf break.
But what has he done since he released his big statement on football Nov. 25?
- Has USC addressed its strength and conditioning program?
- Has USC changed its culture or discipline?
- Has it made important changes to its staff or personnel?
- Has it changed its schemes?
- Has it done anything similar to Brian Kelly did at Notre Dame in 2016?
ANSWER: The only real change so far is Kliff Kingsbury and a couple other assistant coaches. And Kingsbury could leave for the NFL.
So offensive schemes are changing but not defensive. And John Baxter is back with special teams.
Personnel? The recruiting class is below the usual USC standards.
As I said this morning, Notre Dame hired 17 new staff members. USC has hired three so far.
If Swann wants to do nothing, that is his right. It is also the right of USC fans to not purchase season tickets for next season.
