I spoke to a USC player and asked the biggest difference between Lincoln Riley being in charge compared to Clay Helton and Donte Williams.
“Everyone is listening now,” the player said. “Last year, the players weren’t listening. Positions are up for grabs and Riley said it’s a clean slate.
“Before it felt like starting positions would get decided and nothing would change it. Especially for younger players who never saw the field.”
