It is semi-hilarious that USC will probably climb the College Football Playoff poll Top 25 even with Clay Helton on the verge of being fired.
The Trojans need only beat double-digit underdog UCLA to move further up the poll next week. And if they don’t make the Pac-12 title game, they might move again.
Can you imagine this headline: “18th-ranked USC fires Clay Helton”
Does Mike Bohn need to wait until Utah clinches the Pac-12 South? That won’t come until Nov. 30. That’s too late, in my opinion.
This is why I keep saying Helton needed to be fired after the Oregon game. All this stuff going on now is irrelevant and distracting.
Here’s what Bohn really needs to worry about:
- Sagging attendance
- Donor unrest
- Worst-ever recruiting class
Can Bohn really afford a season with those things strangling the program?
