Who Is USC’s Greatest No. 2?

USC posed this question today: Who is the greatest No. 2 of all time?

Naturally, USC didn’t even mention Morley Drury, who is in the College Football Hall of Fame and also wore No. 2. Drury was an All-American in 1927 and nicknamed “the noblest Trojan of them all.”

But looking at the choices above, I think the obvious answer is Robert Woods. He set the USC record for career receptions (252).

Adoree Jackson was the best athlete but made most of his memorable plays on special teams and didn’t have a great junior year at cornerback. Taylor Mays had 276 tackles in his career but intercepted only five passes. Steve Smith was an underrated All-American who was overshadowed by Mike Williams and Dwayne Jarrett.

What do you think?

  2. Scooter,

    The question is then, who is Number 1? There have been way too many great Trojans that have played and to single it down to either No. or 2 is very hard. You have Oj, Ronnie Lott, Marcus Allen, Charlie White, Ricahrd batman Woods, Adrian Young, Rossvich, Anthony Munoz, Pete Adams, Mike Williams, Robert Woods, Carson Palmer, Leinhart, bush, and others. How do you rank them?

    1. If it weren’t for — well, you know — it would be O. J. Simpson.
      But Marcus, Bush, Woods, Young, Munoz are way up there too.

  3. Jon Arnett, up until now I have not seen anybody that had better balance than he did. He was quick and he had the moves like Berry Sanders. He just wasn’t as fast as the other guys. He was the most exciting trojan running back I’ve ever seen, i’ve seen them all since he left USC.

    1. Great point, Raul. Jon didn’t outrace defenders into the endzone ….he weaved thru & by them… still 6 points for our side…..

      1. Agree. Today the runners are speeders, running straight to the end zone. Big deal.
        But Barry Sanders, Bush to a certain extent, and Jon Arnett danced like few can.

  4. In terms of running back only OJ was far more talented than Marcus Allen.
    In terms of pure football players that could play multiple positions effectively- Marcus Allen No.1 and Ronny Lott a close 2nd with Sam Cunningham and Bob Chandler real close to the top.

  6. The problem with impeaching potus and the senate convicting him is headboard harris is in the ondeck circle. Unless heelsup gets impeached also. Then the Speaker of the HR ascends.

    Then the civil war starts. Fun times.

  7. Imagine Kamela Harris negotiating for the US with Russia’s Vladamir Putin.
    Kamela: Hey Vladi what’s it going to take to get you to pull the troops out of Ukraine.
    Putin: What are you implying that you can give me something that I want.
    Kamela: I don’t offer my services to anyone know what I mean. My negotiating skills are supreme I proved that in the City of Oakland. My actions do all the talking especially at night.
    Putin: So that’s how you got elected, and chosen by the old man Biden to me his running mate. Are you more than running mates, and did you offer him the same services you offered me.
    Kamela: No way Biden is too old. You have what it takes Vladamir let’s have dinner in Moscow, smoke a joint together, and then I will show you how I negotiate.
    Putin: OK……..this better be good for me to even consider pulling out the troops, and I do have a very young girlfriend you know.

  9. Part 2 coming next per your request Michael. I will tell you this what ever Lola wants Lola gets or I should say Kamela. That was a line if you recall from “Those Damm Yankees” staring Tab Hunter. That was one great flick once Lola finished Tab after a few nights he was never the same hitter again and there was a reason Lola was nasty in the sack.

  10. Q1: Who is/was less qualified for their gig:
    Biden as POTUS, or Helton as USCHC?

    Q2: If Helton was POTUS and Biden were USCHC, which is more likely to happen: Helton gets Putin to backdown or Biden leads us to a Natty?
