USC has literally made every move except the obvious one to save the program.
It replaced its offensive coordinator two years ago. It replaced its entire defensive staff last year.
It hired more support staff. It created a hype-video division. It hired a new athletic director!
And still in 2020, USC was sloppy, soft and couldn’t beat a good team. Not that it even played any good teams, fortunately for the Trojans.
So what moves are left for Mike Bohn? I don’t know what else he can do if he doesn’t fire Clay Helton.
Bohn can hide behind a 5-1 record. But the fans saw the games and know how awful the product was against inferior competition.
Now here comes 2021 with Talanoa Hufanga, Amon-Ra St. Brown, Isaiah Pola-Mao, Alijah Vera-Tucker, Marlon Tuipulotu and Tyler Vaughns headed out the door. I could add some other names too.
Can they make the schedule easier?
Blame it all on offensive line coach Tim Drevno?
The moves are limited, baby.
- Did you hear Helton say on “Trojans Live” that Kedon Slovis, St. Brown and Vera-Tucker were out of a bowl game with injuries?
I already wrote Saturday about Slovis and St. Brown. But Vera-Tucker too?
No QB. No WR. No OT.
Against Texas? In San Antonio?
Yes, it was definitely time to say the players needed to spend Christmas with their families.
