First, this week’s podcast is below, which includes my pick for the Holiday Bowl.
Now, I caution in the podcast about there being so many warning signs heading into the game that USC is not as serious as Iowa. I already mentioned the 40-minute practice last week.
But I hear the Thursday walk-through is scheduled to take place in a hotel ball room. Say what?
The forecast Thursday is for rain but this is San Diego. It’s not going to snow. And Southwestern College, where USC will practice, has artificial turf.
Does Clay Helton not want to get wet? Do you think Iowa will practice in a ball room?
Helton has a reputation for being extrememly easy during bowl practices and the arrival of Mike Bohn hasn’t changed a thing, apparently.
