Some of the USC fans I talk to are concerned USC might win enough games to save Clay Helton‘s job.
That is what they think about more than whether USC can win the Pac-12 South. One believes Helton is finished no matter how many games he wins. That is what is on their minds.
The 28-14 loss to Washington merely is a sidenote to them because they only have one thing on their mind.
- I still feel like Graham Harrell is getting a free pass. He is billed as a quarterback whisperer.
How many times have read, “North Texas’s offense” did this or that under Harrell? And now he has more talented players than ever before.
But the offense pretty much averages three touchdowns a game . . . with little of the tempo promised under the Air Raid.
You can try to blame it on the lack of stability at quarterback. But watch how JT Daniels played in the second quarter vs. Fresno State. Or Kedon Slovis played vs. BYU. Or Matt Fink played vs. Washington.
All of the quarterbacks have had their moments and been inconsistent.
The one thing that is also consistent is that Harrell has not yet been some offensive guru.
