How much of a beating does the USC brain trust (Clay Helton, Graham Harrell) think it is OK for Kedon Slovis to absorb?
Slovis got knocked out of two games (Utah, Iowa) and left two other games (Arizona State, UCLA).
When you don’t run the ball and throw as many as 55 passes a game, this is probably a logical conclusion for a quarterback, especially when you have a porous offensive line.
What makes this worse is Slovis looks like he can take a hit, unlike JT Daniels. So it’s even more problematic that he has been subjected to so many hits.
All that gaudy stats and the backpatting some do of Harrell won’t amount to much next season if Slovis gets hurt because teams like Alabama figure out USC is not committed to any sort of running game.
If USC can’t run on Iowa, will it be able to run on Alabama?
- Baylor coach Matt Rhule is getting mentioned for NFL jobs today. But he wasn’t good enough to get contacted by USC.
