USC coach Clay Helton said the players would see an internal depth chart sometime next week.
Why doesn’t he want the public to know? Who knows.
The only position the fans really care about the depth chart is quarterback. This seems like another way Helton is trying to become more secretive. He is considering making access tougher next season, the sure sign of a beleaguered coach.
A secret depth chart is one more way to avoid accountability. Pete Carroll released one at the end of the spring. Remember when he famously had Matt Leinart No. 1 at QB, which surprised a lot of people?
Helton doesn’t want you to see one until late August. It’s the mark of not trusting your choices.
