USC Saturday Buzz: A Rivalry Suffers Under Clay Helton

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.

  • Will Jake Garcia have second thoughts about signing with Miami?

Canes QB D’Eriq King announced Saturday he will return for the 2021 season.

King has passed for 2,573 yards with 22 touchdowns and five interceptions. He rushed for 520 yards and four touchdowns

  1. Oh, by the way…..Helton would’ve lost to that 4-8, injury riddled Notre Dame team if it weren’t for Adoree Jackson having the game of his life…..

  2. Even though the fan base is calling for Gomer to be tarmac’d, here is what will occur (just like last year and the year before that).

    Bohner is going to tell Gomer to fire his O-line coach and maybe his running back coach (making them the scapegoats), with the usual promises “that the culture is changing” or we are “building for championships”. When even the blind can see that to do either is to fire Helton. I have to believe that Bohner’s hands are tied by Dolt.

    If I were Bohner, I will tell the entire coaching staff (including and specifically Gomer) to visit Saban and/or Sweeney and see how they conduct Spring practice for a week. It’s common that other coaches look in on other coaches practices. Cristobal was at Saban’s spring practice last year. And then tell the coaching staff, if future camps/practices do not look like the camps/practices that these 2 winners run in terms of pace, efficiency, physicality, etc. they should expect to be fired at the end of spring ball.

    1. Great idea –except Gomer has already said he’ll have too many players out to even have a Spring Practice…..

      1. Can you refute— point by point— the legal arguments made in the Texas brief to the Supreme Court? [Kidding. Why bother? They’re “baseless”]…….
        I’ll always admire the patriotism of the Biden lawyers spending thousands of hours and millions of DNC $$$ protecting the “sanctity of the Dominion voting machines”, fighting state and federal subpoenas ordering inspection of the Dominion servers — taking the novel position that the proprietary rights of foreign companies are more sacred than the American electorate’s right to know if the presidential vote was legit —

  3. everything starts at the top, the befuddled drunk goes to alabama and he looks like that greatest oc. until the loser is removed (if the self proclaimed god worshipper still doesn’t have the decency to resign) nothing will change.


  4. there is no answer for how to fix the offense under graham harrell. all the solutions wont happen under harrell. 1) they need to open the QB competition up and allow Jaxson Dart to win the job, which would give them a QB with a run threat 2) they need an offensive coordinator with another 5-10+ years of experience at teams that run an offense other than the air raid 3) they need an o-line coach that can recruit 4) they need to actually practice football at football practices (with tackling and blocking even) 5) they need a schematic offense that tries to create strategic leverage and get players open rather than simply training the QB to throw into tight windows that require a super-human player.

    harrell is simply a rookie coach and is nowhere near being qualified.

    1. Usually with a list that long a couple of points amount to nothing more than filler —but every fucking point you made was right on the money.


  5. Owns –

    Trump will be inaugurated on January 20th. You and your Trotskyist friends better retreat to your safe spaces. BTW, you better give most of the 2k you get from the relief bill to your pimp.


      1. “Trump may or may not get sworn in to his second term”

        You’re really going out on a limb there, buddy!


      2. So redneck Trump supporters finally figured out that the guy who lived in the New York penthouse with the gold toilets and the butler really doesn’t give a shit about them.
        Got it!


    1. PMJ, you’re a brain-washed imbecile.

      Remind the blog who Trotsky was Goober.

      Trotsky was never a traitor like the POS Trump. Little boy Trump golfs while the nation implodes from that HOAX, CV-19 pandemic.

      F**k the Ratpublicans.


    2. What kind of inside info do you have? If you hadn’t noticed, the air is out of my balloon and I don’t have the energy to post the batshit crazy conspiracy links anymore.
      It’s good to know there’s someone more delusional than me posting here.


    3. With all the Medical Doctors all over the World …NONE have the Answer to what Covid 19 is……this is PATHETIC. ..and a Disgrace …….the Actual VIRUS which CHINA created. …destroying all Country’s all over the World. …Killing Million s. All over the World. ..Now America is going to have a Evil Criminal BIDEN as President. With his son Hunter a CRiminal getting Million s of Dirt y criminal money from Russia and china……and 77 million people voted for this EVIL. This a DISGRACE to America. . Also just. FiRE He’ll Ton and all this USC B.S. would be over….


  6. Clay Helton should resign or Mike Bohn should fire him. Helton has proven he is not Head Coaching material and neither was Lane Kiffin or Steve Sarkesian. USC needs a proven, tested, & a HC that can develop talent & demand excellence. The Alumni & fans deserve better than this. Class of 1982 Alum.
