How happy is Clay Helton that he didn’t play Notre Dame?
He is 1-4 against the Irish and would have been heavy underdogs to beat this season. Even Paul Hackett was 1-2 against Notre Dame.
Among Helton’s many transgressions is letting this rivalry become one-sided. Since Notre Dame isn’t incompetent for Helton, this game has been a big problem. Helton’s lone victory over Notre Dame in 2016 came when the Irish were 4-8.
Mike Bohn can make more staff/office changes but USC isn’t gaining on Notre Dame under Helton.
