Travis Dye Transfers To USC

Oregon tailback Travis Dye is transferring to USC.

It’s a big boost to the offense and a big blow to Oregon.

But what is in it for the ex-Stanford tailback Austin Jones, who committed to USC yesterday? Or Darwin Barlow? Or even Brandon Campbell.

I wouldn’t be surprised if someone transfers now.

A backfield of Dye, Caleb Williams and a bunch of wide recievers is formidable. Like I said, will USC win games, 84-83?

      1. It was said that Babe Ruth had a hard time remembering names,
        so he called everybody “Bud.”

        I think our Ed is smarter than the Babe, so calling everybody “John”
        is part of his charming schtick

      1. Remember when Ed got back at Bill by staying out all night drinking gin and Listerine with Hillary? …. [it was the night before Hillary collapsed at a funeral and had to be loaded into a security van]….

  1. We’re going to be loaded on offense! Is a high-powered offense or vaunted defense more desirable in college football? I think we need a balanced attack on offense!

    1. Offense is sexier, but relies more on finesse than defense. So sometimes even a great team can have its troubles in a game with turnovers or having difficulty figuring out a particular defense.

      Defense on the other hand is largely effort, and therefore should be more constant than offense.

      What has changed football is the reliance on passing more than running. A good pass play can get 30 yards or more, whereas a good run play will get you 8 yards. The result is higher scoring games

      Some still find a balanced attack of run-pass more fun to watch than a pass-happy team.

  2. Keep in mind the offensive and defensive line coaches were the most recent to come to USC. They need some time to recruit.

    The transfer portal is going to keep going, even after Spring Camp.

    We can probably limp by with the just another couple offensive line transfers and Josh Conerly, added to the current players. On the defensive side, it really depends upon what players are available.

  3. Porno stache Dye is a great get. Having 5 TB’s on the roster doesn’t seem like too many. Dye will be at USC only 1 year and Davis 2. Brown could play RB or slot WR. What OL wouldn’t want to play with all this skill position talent!?✌️

  4. Yo FU. You moron. Where are you getting your information from?. Caleb is coming. When Caleb committed to Riley it started the dominoes to fall. Caleb committed and then Riley told Dart of the commitment which led to him IMMEDIATELY entering the Portal. Caleb also promised his best friend Mario Williams that he was coming to USC which led to his commitment. Get your facts straight you idiot.

  5. “What is in it for the rest of those running backs?” Competition. Competition makes great(as Pete Carroll used to say). Will some transfer? Probably. Maybe that’s good. The ones who are afraid to compete probably lack confidence in their own abilities and probably would have been sitting on the bench anyway.

  6. Maybe(as Michael Guarino has hinted at in an earlier response), Caleb and his family and Riley have already agreed that Caleb is coming to SC. They are just working out all the NIL agreements and that’s what is taking so long. I have no evidence that this is true. It’s just a wild guess. But when I look at Riley, he doesn’t seem too concerned about the Caleb Williams situation. It’s the fans that are concerned.

    1. Dye is outstanding. But only time will tell whether he is better than the Stanford guy that they brought in or the guys who are coming back. Dye ran behind a better O-Line and a much more productive running game at Oregon than what the rest of those SC backs had. One way or another, we should have at least 3 outstanding running backs this year. Now let’s get some outstanding O and D linemen and some LB’s

    1. You don’t win games with skill positions although they are definitely necessary. SC had a ton of great skill position players under CH. You win football games at the LOS. The old addage is still true that if you want to win football games, you must run the ball on offense and stop the run on defense. Your running game depends on your O-Line and stopping the run depends on your front 7.

      1. Defensive players can be developed, though it might take a bunch of ugly games before the D gels.

        A talented offensive takes tons of skill and LIVE reps.
        USC has a lot of talent on O now with plenty of LIVE reps.
        Dye is a good get.

    1. I’m hoping he goes anywhere BUT USC. No need to deal with his meddling, greedy dad. All parents want to be involved with their child’s decision. But this guy sounds like Cam Newton or Marijuanavich’s dad or even worse, Lavar Ball. No thanks!

  8. I think it is fabulous we are getting more speed, and depth at running back and wide receiver from the transfer portal.
    My only concern is both the new running backs are seniors and probably will scare off our returning backs who were pretty good, and also the freshman coming in from Mater Dei. Remember, a quick fix is often a temporary fix, and might hurt us long term if those already here or committed desire to transfer rather than compete for a starting job

    I think Riley promised Caleb that he would bring in the most dynamic offense in college football so he can win the Heisman Trophy, and Riley is doing just that.

  9. Apparently Wiley-Riley knows Caleb Williams is coming to Troyland because he obviously told Dart that Dart would be second string.

    Why else would Dart have suddenly darted off to the Portal?

    But then again, in the 2020s the word of a good footballer under 20 years old is about as rock-solid as quick-sand, so the ‘jury is still out’ with this Williams kid.

    Riles has taken a big gamble here with the unpredictable Caleb, and if his gamble fails and Caleb goes to LSU, and there is now no Dart in play, how will Wiley be portrayed by
    the media?

  10. HEY OWNS- NOT WE HAVE TWO SMALL RUNNING BACKS WITH SPEED WHO TRANSFERRED IN AND 3 OTHERS ALREADY HERE.. Being small, and powerful is much better than being a midget like your basketball coach “Mighty Mick”. You called all our transfers boring, but in reality there is nothing to be excited about in Westwood because Bruin fans have not been excited since Tommy Protho was in Westwood over 50 years ago. What’s even funnier UCLA awarded Cheeseburger Chip with a raise and an extension with few recruits coming in, and definitely no fans.

  11. Blah, blah, blah, …… we need players at all positions, it’s not rocket science, …the better players we get, the more successful the team will be. Offense is looking good, let’s hope the Dfense can keep up this year

  12. With the reports that Caleb is in play in multiple places, Riley should pull the plug on that and just get Dart back into the class. Unless this is all just a ploy to get more NIL support at USC, this runs the risk of a major mistake.

  13. Travis Dye reminds me of Justin Fargas – tough, straight ahead runner with breakaway speed and receiving ability. What a total blessing the Helton exit has been.Lesson learned, eh Clay?

  14. 10 incoming transfers so far. Michigan State was at 6 this time a year ago and added 13 more after spring practice.
