I’m going to start listing reasons I’ve heard why Bru McCoy left USC.
These differ sharply from what Clay Helton said to the Trojans, which I reported here.
No. 1: McCoy noticed during his two weeks at USC that no one worked hard, according to two USC players.
The January workouts/practices were a continuation of what happened in the fall, despite Lynn Swann’s promise otherwise. McCoy is a bright guy and it struck him immediately. He knew if he wanted to be part of a successful program, a shoddy winter workout program with poor work ethic was a recipe for disaster.
