It’s the last day of spring practice and Clay Helton unleashed this familiar refrain today:
“Everybody’s going to have to earn a job. We’re going to play the best kids that are in the moment.”
That’s a cliche. But how often is it even true at USC? Many times, you already know who is starting no matter what happens at practice . . . or even games. Remember how fans were upset that Helton would not let someone else play center when Toa Lobendahn had trouble with snaps? Or JT Daniels? I’d argue the past couple seasons that Vavae Malepeai seemed to have carte blanche as a starter.
