USC Winners and Losers Of Week


Clay Helton

You know the saying: You can fool some of the people, some of the time. That’s Georgia Southern.

Arizona State

I’m not sure the Sun Devils could have beaten too many teams other than USC on Saturday night.

USC athletic dept.

They can deduct $800,000 from the Clay Helton buyout for the next five years.

Maximus Gibbs

The mammoth offensive lineman played defensive tackle vs. ASU and had as many tackles (1) as Korey Foreman.

Andrew Vorhees

After being in the doghouse at times in his career, he started at left tackle after starting all season at guard. USC needs him now.


Donte Williams and Graham Harrell

The QB rotation and offense were a disaster in Tempe.

Jaxson Dart

The QB rotation doesn’t help him get in a rhythm or develop.

Kedon Slovis

Did he ever explain what happened on that QB keeper play?

Jonah Monheim

The freshman started at tackle most of the season but when Courtland Ford was unable to play last weekend, USC started Andrew Vorhees and Jalen McKenzie at tackle.

The media

Trying to get straight answers from Donte Williams is an impossible task. By the way, why hasn’t Mike Bohn talked to the media lately? He created this mess.

  1. Bohn HAS talked to the media lately, Scott. This morning he announced USC had decided to promote the upcoming game against the bruins on billboards across Los Angeles as “USC/UCLA: The Final Insult!”

  2. Answer to question concerning Slovis running straight toward logjam on keeper play:
    He doesn’t feel comfortable doing anything on the football field until he’s sat in a collapsing pocket for at least 4 seconds.

  3. Winners:
    1. Michael Pittman, Jr–who continues to gain targets with the Colts and is coming up with key receptions.

    2.. Amon Ra St Brown–who is gradually earning HIS targets and ready for that first NFL TD.

    3.. Trojan fans who got to watch great WR play since the days of Jeff Simmons (1982) and Affholter–to Keyshawn and Kareem Kelley and RJ Soward–to Mike Evans and Steve Smith and DJ and Kerry Colbert and Patrick Turner–to Woods/Lee/Agholor/JuJu/Pittman/ARSB/Vaughns
    …and Drake. It’s been a great 40 year run. H squared (Helton/Harrell) have pretty much emptied the cabinet and left it bare.

    Did I leave any names out?

    1. So many good ones – Johnny Morton, Randy Simmrin, Deontay Burnett, Damien Williams, going further back, Sam Dickerson and the ’69 catch in the corner, Bob Chandler (RIP), Swann (great receiver, not so great at AD)

  4. Losers, the Trojan fans who slogged across the barren wasteland between Rialto and Arizona to see a football game but instead got a one ring circus.
    Loser the sideline talking head who got head faked by Donte Williams when requesting information about which useless quarterback would start the third quarter.
    Loser Herm Edwards, whose team looked like a flock of synchronized shoe salesmen, and would have lost against a CIF powerhouse.
    Loser ASU- the only PAC 10 team to tell the league to stuff it when the league told them to change their school colors in order to be admitted to the league-BUT wore a mustard colored home uniform that looked like a Heinz bottle in search of a Hot Dog convention.
    Losers the bus drivers who had to drive the team off the tarmac with the coaches on the bus…way to go Bohn no symbolism here.

  5. Loser of the Week…

    Scott Wolf for being Luke Fickell’s #1 Fanboy

    Loser of tbe Week MG for defending a racist SOB John “Grand Dragon Klan” McKay


      1. The Biggest Loser Donald J Trump wearing Hillary’s Clinton’s pants suit the night Sleepy Joe Biden mopped the floor with him…



      2. MG ad GhostofRacistMcKay were seen huddled together holding hands waiting for JFK Jr. to appear before other fellow Qanon nutjobs at Dealey Plaza.



  6. Loser, the athletic director at Georgia Southern, because the Clay Helton hire indicates that he has no idea what he’s doing. When Colorado hired Karl Dorrell, I predicted he would be fired within 3 years, but it looks like he’ll be gone sooner than that.

  7. USC Athletic Department credo…

    To know and not to know, to be conscious of complete truthfulness while telling carefully constructed lies, to hold simultaneously two opinions which cancel out, knowing them to be contradictory and believing in both of them, to use logic against logic, to repudiate morality while laying claim to it, to believe that democracy is impossible and that the Party is the guardian of democracy, to forget whatever it was necessary to forget, then to draw it back into memory again at the moment when it is needed, and then promptly to forget it again, and above all, to apply the same process to the process itself—that was the ultimate subtlety: consciously to induce unconsciousness, and then, once again, to become unconscious of the act of hypnosis you have just performed. Even to understand the word—doublethink—involved the use of doublethink

    1. Where did you get that ‘credo’ ghost? It is the perfect summation of everything the Biden Administration actually stands for [while condemning] but, of course, pretends it doesn’t stand for…while continuing to stand for…

  8. No winners this week. Helton is not a winner for going all the way down to Georgia Southern. But what that does show is that he knows he never belonged as USC head coach, or anywhere close to that. What other USC HC would be demoted that far down the food chain? He may have received a better offer if he had left sooner, but at the end of the day he is nothing more than a greedy huckster who lies all the way to the bank.

    1. It would have been better all around & for everybody concerned if Clay left directly after the Cotton Bowl….

  9. The Biggest Loser Donald J. Trump was wearing Hillary’s pants suit the night Sleepy Joe Biden mopped the floor with him in the 2020 General Election




    Loser MG and GhostofRacist were in Dealey Plaza with the other Qanon trumplicans waiting for JFK Jr. to show up…



      1. That’s what I say to myself every time I reply to tebow —“How long before he rises to the bait?”

  10. Scooter,

    the fox that ran on the field. He saw how bad SC is, so he left.


    Georgia Southern, maybe they paid Helton the $800k just to have a good looking lady like Mrs. Helton there.

    SC’s defense, offense and special teams. Can we beat on them some more/ Of course we can.
