If Carol Folt is telling the truth that USC has a $300-$500 million operational deficit for the upcoming fiscal year, then why isn’t its highest-paid employee taking a pay cut? I mean, seriously, Clay Helton is making videos with his picturesque ocean view in the background and probably getting around $4 million but he can’t take a 10 percent cut? He went 13-12 the past 2 … Continue reading Here’s How USC Saves $400,000
It looks like JT Daniels will need to obtain a waiver if he wants to transfer from USC.

That is going to really see for kids, is that something that opens up the … Continue reading Clay Helton “May” Add A Quarterback
With Elijah Weaver transferring, it means USC loses its top five scorers from last season. That’s not ideal, obviously. I’m sure some will argue the grad transfers, etc. will make up for it. But when you lose your top five scorers and all recruits from 2017-2018, it’s not any way to build a successful program.
