What happens if USC beats Oregon? And Arizona State? And Cal? And UCLA?
Do I think USC will win all of those games? No. Is it possible? Yes.
Is that enough to save Clay Helton‘s job? If USC wins the Pac-12 South, no. But what if USC wins the Pac-12? Wouldn’t that do it?
Remember, I advocated for a coaching change in 2017 after 10 wins and a Pac-12 title. But I’m not Carol Folt or the new A.D. He might just survive.
I will talk about this in the podcast when it gets posted but I think two things might hurt Helton even if USC keeps winning: Small Coliseum crowds and poor recruiting.
But if he wins the Pac-12, Folt will need to be decisive like she was with Lynn Swann. Will she do it?
- There are fewer than 2000 tickets left for USC-Arizona State game at Sun Devil Stadium. Imagine a USC home game with that scenario.
