USC’s hyped up for its new video duo, which is currently in Louisiana.
But now that USC is ranked No. 1 in the hype-video Top 25, how long will it last?
Depends who you ask? Some in LSU think USC’s world champion status might be brief.
Said an LSU source: “One (hype video) guy is moving to L.A. so he can get a job in Hollywood. He will be out the door the first chance he gets.”
- I’ve heard again this week that Clay Helton and Andy Enfield were forced to take pay cuts and did not volunteer to give back the money.
- I’ve heard Enfield is unhappy Elijah Weaver transferred because they could have recruited other players to replace him if they had known sooner. I hear USC is looking at an ACC player for a possible transfer.
- There will be a Washington invasion of Southern California the weekend of Nov. 14-15. Washington plays USC at the Coliseum and Washington State faces UCLA at the Rose Bowl on Nov. 14. The next day, the Seahawks play the Rams at SoFi Stadium.
- USC baseball will welcome incoming freshman pitcher Jaden Agassi next season. He is the son of Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf.
- If you want to know why USC isn’t dominating sports like track and field, baseball and swimming like it used to, just look at the elimination of scholarships for each sport over the decades.
Here is how it breaks down for men’s track:
1964: 32 men’s track scholarships for 16 events
1965: 28 scholarships for 18 events
1972: 23 for 21 events
1976: 14 for 21 events
2020: 12.6 for 21 events
Now you know why USC hasn’t won an NCAA title in men’s track since 1978.
