Nothing amazes me more than people who are aware of USC’s shortcomings under Clay Helton but still try to defend him.
It’s definitely a group decreasing in size but they cling to Helton winning a Rose Bowl and Pac-12 title as proof he has been a successful coach.
They don’t care that USC is on a downward trend. They don’t care Sam Darnold was responsible for Helton’s accomplishments. They ignore how undisciplined USC has become under Helton. They certainly won’t acknowledge USC won a conference title the year the Pac-12 went 1-8 in bowl games.
They don’t care that there is an ever-growing segment of the team that is turning Helton out. It used to hard to find these players but now it is easy.
They just want to defend Helton, so they paint anyone who criticizes him as being an irrational fan.
They can’t really provide answers on their own, they just know they support Helton. It’s like a cult.
