When Oregon returned a kickoff for a touchdown just before halftime, a USC player on the sideline was heard saying, “Clay is finished.”
- Believe it or not, USC is a 2-point favorite over Arizona State per BetOnline.
- Does anyone have a problem with USC’s coaches putting so much on an 18-year-old (Kedon Slovis)? He’s been taking a physical beating the past 2 weeks and hasn’t really been at his best the past 3 games.
An ordinary coach would have had Jack Sears as the backup and could have slowly transitioned to Slovis if desired. But Clay Helton ran Sears off and went all in with Slovis.
And now we have an 18-year-old who is in danger of getting shell-shocked before he finishes his first season of college football.
- CBS bowl analyst Jerry Palm still has USC playing in the Sun Bowl vs. Louisville.
