Watch Lists But Will There Be A Season?

But USC QB Kedon Slovis has made the watch list for the Davey O’Brien Award, which goes to the nation’s top quarterback.

    1. Fun Fact….If a chimpanzee lines up under center for USC he’ll get some yards, because it’s the system, not the quarterback. How many of Mike Leach’s quarterbacks are in the NFL ? Keadon Slovis is just another product of that statistic building air attack offense that will never lead a team to a national championship, it never has, and never will.

      1. When I watch Slovis as a true freshman, the kid is a QB, irrespective of the system. Below, you can see his arm and the ability to throw it after the play breaks down:

        (He does need to release quicker to avoid hits).

        As far as getting back to Natty territory goes, QB is not the problem area, nor running a spread offense IMHO. Oklahoma under Riley runs a spread-type offense. I’d love to see what USC could do with the Oklahoma line opening holes for Stepp, Christon, VM, Carr. Then we would have ball control to go with Slovis throwing the ball, and being able to keep the D off the field.

      2. 67 —Throw in a physical defense and we’d really have something. [I’ve heard our new D-Coordinator really puts the fear of God into his guys at first…..but he starts to wear on the kids after a bit. I worry that this stretched out pre-season might interfere with the momentum he brings]…..

      3. Michael, your comment about Orlando wearing thin after a while sounds like what happens with Jim Harbaugh. He is a talented coach, but such a nut case that he wears out his welcome after a few years to the point where players and staff just can’t stand to be around him. Happens everywhere Harbaugh has been. His brother doesn’t seem to have the same intensity issues.

        I bet Jim would be closer to normal if he didn’t lose the Super Bowl to his brother on a non call [on that endzone interference]……

      5. Michael, I’d put DTR in the top 5 of the category “Total O-line breakdown, followed by at least 30 yards of scrambling across the field, and then flinging it to avoid the otherwise inevitable 15 yard sack.”
