There is an attitude that pervades USC on a daily basis I don’t notice at other college football powers. It’s where Drake Jackson can say, “I gotta get out of here” in mid-August or that this is his “money year” as he prepares to leave for the NFL. Usually, a player says he won’t be back until after his junior year, not before.
I suppose the honesty is good. But it also seems to minimize team goals at the same time.
A no-hitter in his first major-league start. A former USC baseball player makes good. That’s not something you can say every day.
USC hired him for a pre-game and post-game role on its radio broadcasts. Let’s hope USC can handle his honesty.
The USC QB commit was 18 for 22 for 451 yards with 8 TDs and 1 INT in a half of football.
The former USC wide receivers coach is one of four former Tennessee players who will get a “larger than life” statue outside Neyland Stadium on Sept. 2. Lester McClain, Jackie Walker and Condredge Holloway are the other players. USC could use Martin’s help recruiting wide receivers.
If he speaks to the media today, it means he won’t answer questions about Saturday’s scrimmage until Monday evening.
I could be referring to defensive tackle Maniloa Tufonoa being in Honolulu (I actually had a an item on him in the newsletter at the end of spring when Jay Toia transferred that might explain it). I could be referring to freshman offensive lineman Casey Collier being in Texas. Or the 20-plus players who were out before the first pads practice.
After losing out on three 4-and-5 star receivers, USC took a commitment from a 3-star receiver.
