Sunday Buzz: USC-Lakers Comparisons Used To Be Good

Would Lynn Swann be able to conduct a coaching search any better than the Lakers?

It’s a legitimate question for an athletic director who acts like he knows everything but has no practical experience.

Lakers fans seem to have similar feelings about Kurt Rambis, who took too much time and ended up with Frank Vogel. Who would USC’s Frank Vogel be? Or are they already run by a Vogel (Clay Helton)?

USC’s rarely hired an outsider (Larry Smith, Pete Carroll) and Swann would probably have pressure on him to do it. At this point, though, some already seem to want offensive coordinator Graham Harrell despite the fact they literally know almost nothing about him other than what he says in interviews.

Based on everything else, Swann’s ability to botch a coaching search cannot be underestimated. Frankly, the best hope for USC is to fire Helton and then have new president Carol Folt force Swann to form a search committee, something USC hates to do.

It might be the only way to end the current USC-Lakers comparisons.

At least the Lakers fans staged a meek protest outside Staples Center. When will USC fans voice their displeasure?

  • The USC women’s water polo team, without Coach Jovan Vavic, will play Stanford today for the NCAA championship at 3 p.m.
  • You haven’t heard much about tight end Tyler Petite since the NFL draft. Petite worked out with the Denver Broncos last week and is scheduled to work out with the Washington Redskins this week.

  1. You forgot to include why Vavic wasn’t coaching. Poor guy had a ruin edumacation and thought he could get away with a crime, was caught and arrested on a roadie in Hawaii. The now disgraced ruin has had to sell his home to pay legal fees. Such a shame…such a ruin.
    As the old Hungarian saying goes…..
    “You can take the guy out of westwierd, but you can’t take westwierd out of the guy”.

    1. May I add ONE thing to Scott’s statement about “all we know about Graham Harrell is what he says in interviews”? One of the OTHER things I know about Graham Harrell is the umpteen thousand yards he threw for in college, including the over 300 yards he threw against Baylor with a broken hand.
      Hope J. T. studies the film. There’s a lot to pick up from this guy —- throwing motion, scrambling ability….and sheer guts under pressure.

    2. “wisky”….. Dear Pusley goes the excuses, excuses, excuses, excuses route to cover his moronic, spelling gaffe. He blames the SW blog ’cause he can’t edit Pusley enquish.

      I’ll bet Vavic could spell Whisky or Whiskey depending on where a “wisky” is made.

      1. You’re the one who makes excuses putz.. I never said that my typing was good. Never blamed the mistake on anything. Read it again. I said I didn’t correct it, not that I didn’t make a mistake.
        You are a miserably lonely dufus waiting around to call me on that. Makes your week doesn’t it? At the end of the day, you’re a wannabe who can’t even claim his allegiance to the ruins through actually attending. But you continue to praise the work of the biggest cheat in the history of the ncaa. Sorry little creatin. Take away the cheaters wins and fucla is the most insignificant athletic program in the history of the big 3 sports. And don’t try to defend the cheater again, his own players have come out and admitted his collusion with sammy gilbert. Abortion anyone? How bout a ride?

        Hahahahaha

      1. Just because you still suckle doesn’t mean the rest of us do. Oops, that was supposed to be a secret, your momma asked me not to tell or you’d throw another tantrum..

  2. If you want to know anything about Lynn Swann’s coaching search abilities, then look at the retread clown he hired as the Women’s basketball ball coach. Then add that decision to the one where he decided to sign Clay Helton to a 4 year extension before evaluating him without the talents of Sam Darnold. The only thing Swan has proven so far, is that he’s an unqualified, dumb ass athletic director, who is getting a free ride .

  4. Wolf, don’t you remember the banner that flew over the Coliseum voicing fan displeasure? Or the Song Girls joining in the protests then getting banned from basketball games? The best hope for USC is to fire Helton and Swann and for Folt to hire an actual AD who will conduct a legitimate coaching search.

  5. Vogel has a track record as a head coach – the Lakers could have done much worse.

    And Pelinka may be gone sooner than Swann, particularly if Lakers don’t recruit a top FA.
