This Clay Helton quote got scant attention Saturday night when talking about going for it on fourth down: “Our defense was tiring a bit.”
Wait a minute. I heard all spring and summer from people that the strength program was amazing and turning everyone into Superman.
But the defense was tiring . . . against Fresno State.
- Meanwhile, the New York Times takes a look at USC and here’s what Lynn Swann said: “You’ve got to give people a chance to execute their game plan, get their people in and make it work. That’s where we are with Clay. It would be great if you hired the coach, everything the coach needed was in place, and they won instantly and it took off. It doesn’t normally happen that way.”
The fear of being accountable with his own hire as football coach keeps Swann from making a move.
