USC Spring Game Report

The USC spring game confirmed a lot of suspicions about the Trojans.

  • The quarterbacks were sacked at least eight times. The defensive line won the line-of-scrimmage battles.
  • Three of the four scholarship QBs also threw interceptions, including Kedon Slovis. The offense had five turnovers.
  • Defensive end Drake Jackson was dominating in the time he was on the field, knocking down a Slovis pass and sacking him in the same series. The other Drake (London) also played as expected.
  • Slovis has good moments but also has some questionable ones.
  • Freshman QB Jaxson Dart made a couple nice passes and tailback Keaontay Ingram had a short catch that turned into a 49-yard play. But I’ve written about them previously.
  • Some of the tackling was shoddy but that’s part of a spring game. I don’t think you can form firm conclusions off any spring game but we already knew the offensive line was an issue and it still is.
  • Clay Helton said defensive tackle Brandon Pili suffered a torn Achilles earlier in the week. That presumably rules him out for the season but we’ll see.

      2. Mater Dei’s offensive line averages 325 lbs.

        The Monarch offensive line is bigger and better coached than USC’s.

        LMFAO!

    1. Clueless Clay Helton is paid $4,569,507 per year.

      Clueless Clay is laughing all the way to the bank and the USC “Brain Trust” apparently couldn’t care less that they’re seen as a bunch of idiots for paying that 3rd rate at best, fraud of a head coach that amount of money.

      Anyone that knows anything about football knows that clown Clay Helton can’t coach worth a shit. A history of never being able to develop talent, hiring inferior coaches so he doesn’t have to look over his shoulder worrying about a competent coach taking his job.

      How this mess that Trojan football has been mired in for as long as it has is allowed to continue…is an absolute joke!

      LMFAO!

  1. Rule #1: Whenever you watch an SC spring game and Yogi Roth is one of the announcers, make sure you print out a USC roster so you can know who is doing what on each play and who is getting a lot of playing time. If Yogi is in there, all you will hear most of the time is him talking to his partner about things that none of us care about. You’ll also see a ton of interviews with former players talking about their career in the NFL and about things that have nothing to do with USC football. This will all happen while the game is going on and if they show each play it will be on half of the screen so get out your Sherlock Holmes microfier so you might be able to see the numbers of the players. Instead of calling it the ‘USC spring game’, they should call it ‘Yogi Roth and his human interest stories’.

      3. Maybe we need to rejoice in private. Maybe we shouldn’t revel in UCLA’s unending parade of failures —fiscal and athletic. It isn’t good for a student body (73% of whom recently indicated they had “frequent” thoughts of suicide) to witness their champions continually humiliated.

  2. The Air Raid offense is a disaster especially with a terrible offensive line. This is not USC football period, and neither are Carol Folt, and Mike Bone. Carol Folt, should not be wearing a dress at her age her legs look like an ex rugby players wheels.

    2. If I might be serious for a moment:
      You COULD say the offense is missing too many parts at this stage or that its just not in sync yet —-but the truth is what you saw today is pretty much what you’ll see in September: a bunch of talented individuals not playing as a cohesive unit. It’s the Helton/Harrell influence. And we’re all used to it by now. [On the other hand, the guys on the other side of the ball look like they could take us a long way. Completely different mindset on defense]…….

    3. Yes, because you see those air raid offenses put so many linemen in NFL. LOL. They are weak at Oline but air raid is not base on having good linemen. It is about quick read and getting rid of the ball. It was built base on have inferior talent at Oline.

        UCLA didn’t lose to Gonzaga by 19 points in the Elite Eight game after C. Cowherd loudly predicted a bozo victory. Once again SUCC succed on a national telecast. Clown U can’t handle big boy competition.

      4. You still hanging your whole basketball season on a single game, one you lost at that. Sheer idiocy that anyone would take a single matchup and say that it means “their” team was better, especially when you lost multiple times to teams we beat. And then to try and make this case still after BEING SWEPT for 2 seasons by that team…. lots of luck finding anyone buying it.
        As far as the football team goes, I am pretty sure playing an exhibition game during a pandemic is the same as playing in the championship tournament, huh. During the holidays meaning an extended quarantine bubble to house and contain the team. And being a California team that post game protocol would require seven day quarantine? Sure you’re right. Funny thing is this was the team that KICKED sow’s ASS all over the field in the quarter that counted. How’d that feel owns? And the great thing is it’s gonna happen again and again.

        Doesn’t it tell you something when you point to a loss as a win, you’re as f’d up as your team.🤪🤯

    1. Love how Helton preemptively created an excuse for poor line play by inexplicably having a “draft” for the spring game… I was under the impression that each practice, each scrimmage, was an opportunity to find a cohesive starting unit… an opportunity to have “iron sharpen iron”. Instead our fake coach says the draft helps young persons prepare for the unlikely scenario where there suddenly subjected to playing with 5 6, 7 new dudes in a game. When the hell has that ever happened in a game? Seems like there are other things we should be spending this precious time (time they cried we didn’t get last year) preparing for… like finding our starting 5 linemen. The ultimate bullshit line from helton is when he stated that the two rbs from texas wouldn’t have gotten their “young person opportunities” to carry the ball if he didn’t have the drafted teams… how the hell does he figure that? Somehow those carries wouldn’t have been available in a 1s on 1s, 2s on 2s scrim?? Just another excuse prebuilt in by the clown who’s full of em.

    1. What worried me most was watching how long Slovis was taking [on some, not all, of his passes] to get the ball out of his hands. Part of that was due to knowing he wasn’t gonna get hit…..but it looks like he’s still willing to wait that extra second to find a receiver….and that hasn’t been a winning formula for his health…
