- Clay Helton might be a buffoon but that is no excuse from shirking media duties. He gets paid more than $3 million a year but cannot answer questions on Wednesdays during the season.
- So if a USC defensive player gets injured, you will have the human statue, Clancy Pendergast, as the lead authority to give a poor answer. If an offensive player gets hurt, who knows whether USC will address it because offensive coaches are not allowed to speak on Wednesdays.
- Helton cannot even perform basic job duties any more.
- The Pac-12 is expected to announced at media day that it will move its title game to Las Vegas for the 2020 season.
