Let’s say Mike Bohn wants to keep Clay Helton.
What happens if USC loses its bowl game?
More likely to me, USC wins its bowl game and then has a mediocre recruiting class, to set up months of discontent.
Things really get ugly when USC loses to Alabama in next year’s season opener.
So you have the people angry Helton is returning and then lose to Alabama. The following week USC hosts New Mexico at the Coliseum. Who will go to that game? What will the fans’ mood be?
Why would Bohn want to bring this upon himself?
