Carol Folt got swamped again about Clay Helton on a non-football tweet this morning.
At some point, she might want to address the football situation, but I doubt she will.
- USC practiced on the artificial surface at Cromwell Field on Monday because Howard Jones Field was rain-soaked overnight. That qualfies as an open practice these days because Cromwell is not closed off by a wooden fence.
Offensive tackle Drew Richmond sprained his foot last week and did not practice while tailback Markese Stepp is currently questionable for the Holiday Bowl.
It’s surprising Richmond sprained foot considering how light USC bowl practices have been.
If Richmond cannot play, Jalen McKenzie will shift to right tackle and Liam Jimmons would start at right guard.
