Clay Helton talked today about the Holiday Bowl being a springboard to next season.
“When you look at our schedule, even for next year, we’re going to play teams like this,” Helton said. “This is a top 25 team, ranked 16th in the country. And when you look at our schedule for next year we could play six top 25 opponents. So the mindset we take into this game is imperative.”
So next year’s schedule will be tough?
That sounds like more reason to fire him.
I actually think USC can easily win nine games next season. But with Helton holding the program hostage, I suppose any scenario is possible.
- Iowa will remove the Tigerhawk logo from its helmet for the Holiday Bowl to honor former coach Hayden Fry.
- Helton said today Drew Richmond sprained his foot during “our last full-contact practice.” He’s been vindicated for having few full-contact practices!
