Why is USC having it’s spring scrimmage, excuse me, spring showcase on Saturday when it will still practice three more times after that?
Remember, the spring scrimmage was always at the Coliseum the final day of spring drills.
Well, the “showcase” as it is now called, is not really a scrimmage because Clay Helton doesn’t like to do a full scrimmage. Instead, it is a glorified practice.
But back to the date. I hear it is Saturday to accomodate the Pac-12 Network. The network has actual spring games from Utah, Stanford and Arizona on April 13.
So it moved USC’s glorified practice to April 6.
- Meanwhile, why is secondary coach Greg Burns (below) wearing his USC hat and sweatshirt from the Pete Carroll era? Is it an attempt to remind everyone of the glory days? He wasn’t exactly a vital cog of that period but none of the current players know that.
