If It’s Friday, It’s Time For A USC Notes Column

USC is playing LSU in 2024. The first reaction is to ask whether Clay Helton will coach the Trojans in that game? But I’m wondering if there is a better chance Helton will coach the game than Ed Orgeron, thanks to USC’s utter malaise when it comes to making a decision on Helton.

Actually, maybe there is a scenario where Orgeron coaches the game . . . for USC.

It could happen if Luke Fickell decides he wants a different job and turns USC down. Then where does Coach Bohn turn? L-S-U? It would at least make Bohn popular with the fans and alumni.

  • I’m so tired of hearing Mike Bohn talk about hiring support staff that I wonder if he has the courage to even make a coaching change? Especially when USC has an easy schedule that doesn’t include Oregon or Washington.
  • Is it too soon to monitor No. 3 QB Miller Moss now that Jaxson Dart is officially the No. 2 QB? These days it is never too early.
  • Korey Foreman might be the No. 1-ranked freshman in the nation by some, but he’s basically a third-down pass rusher if you listen to the USC coaches. That was basically the role occupied by Keith Rivers his freshman season.
  • USC really wants fans at tonight’s women’s volleyball game vs. Denver. The first 1,000 get a T-shirt and football season-ticket holders were given free tickets to the game.
  • BYU had 5,000 fans at Thursday night’s 2-1 victory over USC women’s soccer. The Trojans are 0-2 with losses to Pepperdine and BYU.
  • If the Pac-12 goes to 8 conference games in 2024 that USC could add a Big Ten game or an Alliance game besides the LSU and Notre Dame games.

And now for some history with a 1980’s flavor:

WHO AM I?

Can you name the Trojan above making the catch vs. UCLA in the 1990’s? I’ll reveal his identity in the column supplement later today.

CARD STUNT OF THE WEEK

USC used to be good at card stunts. Here’s one from the 1949 game vs. Washington State.

CONCERT OF THE WEEK

Otis Day and the Knights made a music video at USC in 1986.

FOOD CHOICE OF THE WEEK

It’s Doctor Munchy’s from the 1980’s! At least the doctor never ran out of food.

RESTAURANT OF THE WEEK

It’s the venerable La Barca, a USC institution.

  • Do you remember Nick Shammas? He owned Felix Chevrolet, the beautiful, big, black cat on Figueroa and Jefferson. Shammas bought Felix Cheverolet in 1955 and in 1958 moved to its historic location at  3330 S. Figueroa St.

He also owned seven other auto dealerships but USC fans/students remember him for Felix Chevrolet. I can remember being around USC administrators in the late 1990’s/early 2000’s desperate to get their hands on the property, especially when the Galen Center was being constructed across the street. They never did.

All hail the beautiful, big black cat flexing his legs.

      67 –Do you think there’s a chance it will be USC (coached by Orgeron) versus LSU (coached by Helton) in 2024? [That would be so tight].

  2. Mike Bohn doesn’t have the juice to make a big-time hire. That’s why he doesn’t take the obvious course of action and fire Charles Clay Helton. Once he does that and can’t bring in his old Cincy hire Fickell or Matt Campbell of Chris Petersen, Bohner will be be exposed for the fraud that he is. For now, Bohner can sit back and let fans blame Carol Fraud. #USCFrauds

  5. In 2024 there is a better chance that both Mike Bohn, and Carol Folt will be gone. Unfortunately, in the meantime it looks like either Clay Helton or Luke Fickell will be the USC Head Coach. The real question is will USC be competitive in football in 2024. Wolf, is 100% correct there are too many internal changes going on within the USC Athletic it’s time to win football games Mr. Bohn, or get out of town. We are tired of listening to your “used car salesman” statements on the current status of the program it’s all about how many games USC football wins on an annual basis. Your fixing the interior of the car within the athletic program, but the exterior needs a complete overhaul including a new transmission which starts with the hiring of the correct football coach at USC.

  7. They are trying to rebuild USC football by beefing up the recruiting department, hiring new assistants(how many assistants have they hired in the last 5 years?) and hiring video people but not going with another head coach is an exercise in futility. We need to move on from CH(unless he seriously proves that he can bring SC football back to glory) and once we do that then we will decide who will be the next HC. We need to bring in a proven winner. As long as Clay is there we won’t get quality coaches(who’s going to want to come here and coach for one year) and we will continue to lose a lot of 5 stars from right here in our backyard. And we won’t get quality O-Linemen. Those kids are not stupid. They can see that we’ve gone through about 5 O-Line coaches in the last 5 years. How many O-Line coaches did Toa and Viani have in their 4 years at SC?

    I say UCLA has something good going on this year if they can play some defense they have a chance to be very good, and in contention for the Pac 12 South title. Will they beat SC no ……..definitely not at the Coliseum but that game just might be for the Pac 12 South Championship.

    2. What does being a woman make any difference in how she does business?– For starters, women on the whole are DNA-wired to be nice to men and make babies. And so women spend a lot of time looking for a suitable mate. In business, males may see this female-niceness as weakness, and hence attempt to extract an unfair settlement.

      But at least in the law, over my 50-years experience, women-lawyers are not taken in by the males, and women know their client’s case’s worth, and are willing to fight to the end to make it happen.

      So if you are are a male lawyer, beware of the females lurking in the dark.
