Morning Buzz: USC Calls Clay Helton “A Visionary”

Someone at USC is either incompetent or has a devilish sense of irony.

Just watch the video below, where the narrator says “a visionary” during a shot of Clay Helton and “a genius” with a shot of Clancy Pendergast.

I don’t know whether to suggest a raise or firing the film maker. I do know this: Some people in the athletic dept. are laughing at this video because they brought it to my attention.

Helton a visionary? Pendergast a genius? What fresh hell is this?

I can’t wait for the video that shows Lynn Swann and calls him the father of invention.

  • Tosh Baker, the ninth-ranked offensive tackle in the nation, committed to Notre Dame. Wait, the Phoenix-native wasn’t impressed by offensive line coach Tim Drevno? Or was it the list of recent offensive linemen who have developed at USC in the past 10 years?
  • USC is accepting applications for a new director of compliance. The previous compliance director, Michael Blanton, was promoted to vice president of the Office of Professionalism and Ethics, which was created in the wake of one of the many scandals.
  • The “Concerned Faculty of USC wrote a letter about their concerns over recent developments. The first part of the letter concerns athletics and I doubt any coaches/administrators want faculty-led oversight of the athletic dept.The full letter is here.

    1. Great comedy writers are sufficiently confident in their material that they go without the laugh track….

      P.S.
      It’s worth noting that the producer of this video was, as a young man, one of the writers for Ron Burgandy……

    1. Just rent,

      Ugly aka Thug U and you don’t have a leg to stand on. You, ugly, and their entire sports department (if you want to call it that) all suck. Always have and always will.

    2. Helton is the visionary of nothing other than the worst/stupidest offensive scheme that I have seen in 30+ years of watching football.

  1. This is proof that USC thinks it’s fans are stupid and that they will line up to keep eating the rancid chicken salad that they keep serving up every year.

    The video makes me so mad I want to throw my phacking cell phone right through the phacking glass window.

      1. Pudly —As George begins carefully picking the glass from his hair, I wanted to share a thought with you. Getting wacky “concerned faculty” involved in any way, shape or form with the Athletic Department is not the way to go. Either Swann gets up to speed (and I get your earlier point about Swann simply delegating the responsibility of checking up on the walk ons to some bright underling) or we get ourselves a new Athletic Director who is ready, willing and able to take charge. With all the problems in the AD’s office, the last thing we need right now is to put a bunch of screwy “intellectuals” into the mix —-folks who have never administered anything in their lives but have memorized every line of the last New York Times essay on “collateral consequences” (I’ve sat around too many conference tables with too many law professors complaining that they had “the most grave, grave doubts” over changing the freshman admission number from 100 to 103 —meetings in which the “end result” is an agreement that everybody has to check with everybody else before anybody moves an inch in any direction ).

      2. I agree Michael, he has a new boss and his mission should be clear. There should be no hesitation in fighting the involvement of faculty in athletics beyond the classroom. Strong and aggressive action needs to be taken to keep these people from sticking their noses where they don’t belong. Swann needs to piss on every fire hydrant in and around Heritage Hall and defend his territory.

      3. Yep. The last thing we need as of this moment is one single Comparative Lit or Psychology Professor “helping” the Athletic Department out……

    Yo, the faux erudite mikey boy over-waxes monotonously to point out the obvious. mike boy, the wannabe Cicero.

    mikey boy do I have your permission to submit your anemic/pointless essay to the waiting for somebody to give a S**t inbox.

    mikey boy, I paraphrase you; expensive, white bread education can’t help a lack of acumen.

      1. Why thank you!

        Would that I could write as well as Capote. But be truthful now mikey boy, you’ve insinuated you’ve read Capote, but don’t you really mean you saw the video version like Geo. Costanza?

  3. Does this video mean to imply this season will be the “endgame” of Lynn Swann and Clay Helton…or USC football for that matter???

    Any irony in here that the video uses the word “catastrophe” just as the UCLA game on the schedule is hi-lighted?
