Does USC Need Two Scholarship Punters?

John Baxter wields power within the USC football program. The Trojans offered a scholarship to punter Will Rose of St. John Bosco and he is expected to sign with USC next week.

USC already signed Australian punter Ben Griffiths in December. They need two on scholarship?

Is recruiting going so bad that USC can afford to sign two? Apparently the answer is a resounding yes.

  1. As a preferred walk-on.

    If Griffiths is all that he’s supposed to be (Google his Aussie Rules highlights, he might be the most physically developed punter in college and the NFL), there is a good chance he plays one year then goes to the NFL.

    So Rose is for 2020.

  2. Might want to do a fact check, there’s a rumor that he was offered a preferred walkon position….according to someone who knows the staff at SJB, and actually talks to them.

    1. Pudly, another nice find – and yet another that is “more inside usc” than Scottie’s world of “inside usc”.

      At what point does Scottie get embarrassed by posts of his that get turned upside down by the facts?

    2. Hey Pudly76: You should consider starting a blog and call it: ” Inside Inside USC”. It would be like setting up a Burger King across the street from MC D’s…I would be one of your followers…

      1. No thanks. Sounds too much like work. W O R K !! There’s opinions and facts, for most people facts help form opinions, for some, facts are manipulated for opinions.
        But if I did, I’d never banish owns, everyone must love dogs.

      1. Cal75: Please note that my entire day is consumed by my beloved family and chosen profession. My personal time, at times, is during the hours when most people are cutting z’s, getting laid, bingeing on favorite foods, getting stoned, getting drunk, praying to win the lottery, and/or all of the above. This blog has become a favorite extra-curricular activity that I thoroughly enjoy. Please take some of my “off the wall” comments and perspectives with a grain of salt. And, don’t take things too personal, because I’m actually a nice dude who can be pompous, vain, and at time a real dick according to my better half. I would have to be worried if I had traits similar to our president (the one in DC) Lol…

Since the Heavenly Father and our sweet Lord don’t say much verbally (somewhat like Helton), my only hope is that they hear my prayer and help me to be the best husband, father, friend, and blog participant on a consistent basis😎😊

      2. drjess—- As a kid, I once asked a particularly lame UCLA doctor how long a very sick family member had to live —he said “I’m not God.” I told him that he’d never have to worry about me getting him mixed up with the Divine. Same goes for Helton.
        #God’sSilence&Helton’sSilenceAreAsDifferentAsDifferentGets
        P.S.
        It just occurred to me, drjess—Helton isn’t silent, he just never says anything real. He’s either the devil in disguise (spontaneously dishonest) or he’s over-impressed with Pollyanna’s “The Glad Game” (always find some phony ‘happy angle’ to talk about when confronted with a bad situation —“I’m so happy I could assist our 5 star recruits find new schools”). I’d like it better if he didn’t burn his time and ours talking bullshit. It’s okay to say “I don’t like losing Bru one bit but we’ve got plenty of REAL Trojans left to take up the slack.” He doesn’t have to do public relations for people who’ve screwed him. It doesn’t make him look magnanimous —it makes him look weak.

  4. Speaking of Baxter………the mad-scientist is fun to watch when one of his special teams mind-benders shocks and amazes. However, lately he seems to get so wrapped up in the next magic trick that he loses interest in a plain old boring fundamental special teams play. Field position is not sexy, but it does win effin ballgames. Get your priorities straight Bax!!

  5. Giving all you posters a shout out – this is one of the all-time greats. Posters, thanks for taking the time to deliver all of this material. And thanks to owns for stepping in to take his daily smacking, which was amusing as well.

    Pudly, the Gremlin call was about as good as it gets. Yes, there is tough competition for worst car ever, including Pinto and Vega, but just the styling of the Gremlin delivers the blue ribbon. Hope everyone has a good weekend.

  6. Will you look at this. It’s a love in.

    Speaking of football being about field position… Well someone was..

    CAL has Mater Dei Nick Lopez in the fold. 4.5* kicker who regularly is tasked with kicking from his 25 because Mater Dei gets penalized for excessive exuberance after TD’s. Rarely does CAL score so he’ll always have a fresh leg.
    70-80yd kick offs. Yeehaw.
