Mike Bohn was a real twitter warrior when he first got hired at USC, with 25 tweets between Nov. 7 and Dec. 4, when he announced Clay Helton was retained.
You know how many tweets he wrote since then? Zero!
If bringing back Helton was such a great decision, why has Bohn stopped tweeting? Is it because he knows the fans will attack him? Yes. Is it because he is privately frustrated? Yes. Is it because he is upset with Carol Folt? I hear he is.
He took the job. He went along with the Helton decision. Now he is reaping the whirlwind.
- I pointed out yesterday that the sons of three former USC players have chosen to go to Stanford. USC recently offered a scholarship to Dyson McCutcheon, the son of former USC star player Daylon McCutcheon.
Dyson McCutcheon is only a junior but under the current coaches, why on earth would he want to come to USC?
- With USC playing Iowa in the Holiday Bowl, the best game between the teams was probably in 1961, when the Trojans nearly upset No. 1-ranked Iowa, who held on for a 35-34 victory.
USC went for 2 points at the end but Bill Nelson’s pass to Hal Bedsole was tipped away.
“Once in awhile (John McKay) would say I’m not going for tie, let’s go for the win,” his long-time assistant, Dave Levy, said this week. “Billy (Nelson) was a good quarterback. He didn’t throw a pretty ball, it wobbled, but that’s because of the way he held the ball.”
Here are highlights of that game:
USC sent out this email for men’s basketball this week.
Who will buy tickets after looking at that smile on Andy Enfield’s face? Enfeild has won two NCAA Tournament games in six seasons. He won that many games in one season at Florida Gulf Coast when he went to the Sweet Sixteen.
And then the ad includes Kevin Porter. What did he do at USC?
