It’s Another Day Without Real Change

I will note again no sweeping changes have been made at USC. There is no offensive coordinator. Players are transferring. At least two donors tell me they will not purchase tables at next month’s recruiting dinner after doing it for years. Season-ticket sales? Who knows.

It just seems like a good time for the athletic director to be taking a hands-on approach to USC football. But instead he seems to be tucked safely inside the USC bubble. Or holding a 7-iron.

  1. Wolf, I dislike Swann as much or more than you. However, you are like a jilted, heart sick woman over all this. You should be happy, it gives you something to blog about since you are essentially unemployed. For someone who claims to be a journalist and doesn’t know how to use spellcheck you might try to cultivate someone in the know and try to ferret out what is really going on. What if USC was running smoothly, who could you crap on then? Oh that’s right, you would find someone somewhere to take a cheap shot at. What a miserable existence of a life you must lead.

  2. Mike Link: So since things aren’t running smoothly at SC, what do you think we should do? Should we sit on our hands and be mum about it? We can’t be all things to all people, and in defense of Scot, I have never met a “perfect” journalist in my lifetime. I’m open for suggestions if it will do some good for the institution I love and care for sincerely.

    1. I’m with you, 1drjesscamacho. Scott puts up, what, about a dozen fun items a day —-and entertains tons of people and gets cheap shot for it? I’m certain he doesn’t expect hugs and kisses (those are reserved for Toa) but I’m not sure he deserves to get a kick in the ass either. EVERY single cable sports show is laughing at the state of Trojan sports —should USC fans pretend otherwise? Really, what good would that do? September is coming soon enough —-and it’s going to be beyond obvious what a mess Helton has created by about 7 minutes into the home opener. Scott’s just trying to prepare the slow learners so’s they don’t go into shock.

      1. P.S.
        I’ll be happy to take back everything I’ve said about Clay if he gets first rate coordinators in place before the first day of spring practice. But, if he thinks were good to go with the present staff or some new bunch of second raters, he’s betraying the team way more than the fans.

    2. I have expressed myself many times. Both Swann and Helton should be canned period. Believe me bud, I don’t sit on my hands and am not mum on anything. You appear to be somewhat new to this blog unless you have changed your handle. Scott isn’t anything to anybody. I have read his musings for over 10 years. He is consistently and forever 100% negative. If you like that approach go for it. If USC developed a cure for cancer he would say what about polio? Hell, he criticized Carroll when he went 11-0 and won the BCS. In my view, he needs to moderate a great deal his immense negativity.

      1. Mike — Scott wouldn’t criticize anybody for curing cancer. He’s not that kind of guy.

      2. Thanks for that clarification Mike. I am new to this blog and blogging in general. To be frank and quite candid with you, I never once thought about beating any drums for Scott prior to and during my blogs. My whole intent was to speak out because of the love for the school and team. And, I believe the only remedy for me at this juncture will be to hit the Single-Malt to help to the neurosis thinking about all this horseshit relative to Clay and Swann.

      3. Recently, Mickey, a reporter asked Geo. Tyndall M.D. if he missed his practice at bozo u.

        Tyndall replied, “Hell yes, loved working at bozo u; I mean all those co-ed’s and zero accountability. Shit, me and Maxie got along great, I miss him. Fight on.”

        Mickey, I hope this positive Clown U news is good for you.

      4. I would laugh, Owns —except something like that fake quote will probably come out during pretrial discovery……

    3. I think you missed the picture.
      Yes there are journalist who are for whatever reason always “writing” the opposite of the reader’s liking. Their opinions are out in the open and there is nothing wrong with that.
      The thing is USC could be coming off a 13-0 season, the Basketball team could be 1st in the Pac-12, and the Baseball team could be preseason #1 but for some reason that only MR. WOLF knows to answer he would sure as he** find a way to shine his negative spirit at USC when every other publication, website, reporter or blogger would be “reporting” or “blogging” the actual facts. He clearly has some historical beef tied to USC sports and/or the University.

  3. Has anyone checked the want ads for offensive coordinator positions? I mean are we just sitting here waiting for someone to show up? If we attract the best coaches where are they?
    With journalists writing about the mess we’ve made of ourselves and no end in sight, I cannot remember a bleaker situation.

    1. I don’t see Helton interviewing right now like he should be. He seems to be looking through the big phone book to find someone. It wasn’t the same situation but i think we can compare this to the last time we waited for a hire that should have been made sooner and we ended up passing on DAVE ARANDA for the most undeserving DC at a big time program in Clancy Pendergast.

      I wouldn’t be shocked if one of Helton’s nephews or cousins from back home runs the offense.

  4. As a casual fan, even I hurt for SC. I have nothing but respect for the university which represents the city I grew up in so well.

    At Sunday service this week, Pastor Kevin Holland warned us about becoming bitter, cynical Christians. He pointed out how Jesus pointed out the good in even the most negative of naysayers. To Nathanael Jesus said, and I echo this to and about SW, “In this man, there is no lying.” In you , SW, there is no lying and your passion is pointing out the truth. For this, I commend you and, though I am not an alum, I salute you. Fight On.

    1. Arturo, I respect your thoughts and I am a believer as well but Christ was not a negative person, always looking for the good in people and healing the sick and infirmed. There is absolutley no correlation between Scott and anything divine. His passion is to be as negative as he can, as much as he can, whenever he can.

      1. Christ asked us to pray for everyone because we don’t know the circumstance that they are in. For all we know, Wolf could be possessed by the demon called ugly.

      2. I can see your point about negative people Mike. And, I understand how arduous it is to deal with them (I’ve been dealing with my mother-in-law for over three decades-haha). Here’s something that you might find interesting. I had a discussion with an academic about the “half glass of water” dilemma. He said that a positive person would construe the glass to be half full and the negative person would say half empty. And then I said smiling ( i had a couple of Single/Malts and a bit of cannabis), the glass is completely full because half of it has water and the other half is air. I guess perception can be a real mothafu..ker…

        Clown U loses to a 2 – 7 Bruin FB team……..LOL.

        UCLA pulled the trigger on Alford; SUCCX Andyain’twinning, on the other hand, not only continues to lose but suspends his players indefinitely and encourages Bennie the Bomb to brick 40′, 3 pt. shots.

        Bozo BB…….OOOOOOOOO forever.
