I always say I have never seen a new strength coach come to USC and heard anyone say he wasn’t better than the predecessor.
“The intensity is a lot higher, man it was a rude awakening,” tailback Markese Stepp said about Aaron Ausmus.
Now, I was one of the first and loudest critics of previous strength coach, Ivan Lewis.
But I’m curious if anyone was singing the praises of Ausmus when he was Lane Kiffin‘s strength coach at USC? I don’t remember them doing it.
The current players were not around obviously. But there is a small group of USC fans who are so desperate for something to pin their hopes on for next season, now they point to comments like those above. But they never said a word about Ausmus seven-or-eight years ago. F-a-n-s.
