Clay Helton had this whopper of an answer for snapping out of a shotgun on 4th-and-1:
“Right now, it’s just not us. It’s sad that the fourth-and-1 we had a missed assignment . I don’t think it was from a lack of scheme, but we did have a missed assignment.”
Reaction: It’s not just one play. USC has a lot of problems converting short-yardage downs and insists on doing it out of the shotguin.
- Helton said he doesn’t mind Chris Steele’s numerous penalties.
“I don’t want to take that aggressiveness away from him,” he said.
Reaction: How about coaching him fundmentals?
Injury report: Caleb Tremblay missed Saturday’s game with stingers, Clay Helton said. Palaie Gaoteote left the game with a lower leg contusion and entered the concussion protocol too
Helton said Eli’jah Winston is likely going to miss the season with an ankle injury. Walk-on QB Mo Hasan had surgery on his leg and will be out 3-4 weeks.
