Sometimes, there’s a much better sense of urgency among USC athletes than coaches.
“It’s do or die. I don’t have another year left,” guard Jonah Mathews said after USC defeated Arizona. “I don’t have any more excuses. It’s do or die. So every rebound matters, every loose ball matters.”
But Andy Enfield? He has plenty of years left. Like three more at $3.2 million per season.
So the fact USC didn’t make the NCAA Tournament the past two seasons is tolerable. The fact it is a bubble team despite it’s much-hyped recruiting class is OK.
Since USC will not fire Enfield, it should stage a Clay Helton-like intervention and hire an good assistant coach for some X’s and O’s help.
- I’m a big fan of Michael Pittman but his 13 reps on the bench press at the NFL Combine placed him among the lower third of wide receivers in that event.
- Players ejected for targeting next season will be allowed to remain on the sideline.
