How many times did USC say during the spring and summer how great the strength and conditioning program was?

Graham Harrell, the Boy Wonder, does not want a tight end in his offense. USC tight ends had only 145 yards receiving last season. Tight end Jack Yary, the son of USC legend Ron Yary, decommitted because he saw the offense does not use a tight end.

They don’t wear the same length socks. Some players wear long-sleeve shirts. Look at the socks in the picture below. Now I am not one of those people who think … Continue reading Forget Defensive Coordinator, USC Needs Discipline Coordinator
