Last year, I compared Graham Harrell to Eb Dawson from Green Acres.
But maybe he is really Alfred E. Newman of Mad Magazine, whose motto was What Me Worry?
Ever since he got hired at USC from North Texas, I’ve written I heard even coaches at North Texas felt like Harrell didn’t really like running the ball.
Harrell was asked Tuesday how concerned he was about the run game at USC?
“I think when the quarterback goes 17 of 17 and throws five touchdowns, you’re doing some things well. So that’s our level of concern,” he said.
So he doesn’t care?
How was the offense in the second half? Has USC been good this season in short-yardage situations?
One thing about UCLA is its defense has noticeablt improved from a year ago, hard to believe when it hired Johnny Nansen.
So there could be some situations when USC needs a yard or two.
And Harrell’s lack of concern is not funny. It also would not impress me if I were an athletic director at a school he applied to be head coach. I mean, he needs to sign a tailback, right?
