I found out Clay Helton called the fourth-down play that USC failed to converted late in the game Saturday night.
Why is this important? The CEO said he had turned the offense over to Graham Harrell. But he couldn’t resist getting involved on the fourth-down call. Not to mention going for it when USC should have punted.
- Genius Graham Harrell might be the program savior (according to some) but who taught him clock management? USC is snapping the ball with 15-20 seconds left on the play clock while protecting a lead?
- At least three fans have told me they got home around 1:30 a.m. from the game. And this was with a smallish crowd (under 50,000) and a lot of people going home early, which lightens traffic.
They would gave gotten home later if USC didn’t start running the ball more once JT Daniels got hurt.
