New USC special teams coach Sean Snyder hit a sore spot yesterday during his press conference:
“I don’t allow 10 guys or the field, or nine for that matter,” Snyder said. “We’ll do a lot on the sidelines. We’ll have some help with collecting personnel and making sure we have everybody ready to go. So we do have a process with that. But that’s just something that’s not acceptable.”
Did you catch the “or nine for that matter” comment?
That was a shot at John Baxter. Snyder probably doesn’t know that in 2016 the Trojans had eight men on the field to block an extra point vs. Stanford. Or he might have said, “or eight for that matter.”
