USC Morning Buzz: Winners And Losers Of The Week

WINNERS

USC offensive tackles

They don’t have to worry about Josh Conerly taking their spots any more.

Oregon

How happy do you think the Oregon coaches are to land Conerly after the recruiting experts said USC was the heavy favorite?

Wyoming basketball

The Cowboys got Ethan Anderson, Max Agbonkpolo and UCLA’s Jake Kyman in one weekend. Now the question no one will ask: Will it make them better? They won 25 games last season.

Lindsay Gottleib

The USC women’s basketball coach announced she was pregnant last week.

USC coaches’ clinic

The first Lincoln Riley coaches’ clinic is in the books. And Riley wore his favorite cardinal-and-white pullover.

LOSERS

USC offensive tackles

Lincoln Riley is going to hit the transfer portal harder without Josh Conerly.

Jovan Vavic

He was found guilty on three counts at his trial. Should he have taken a deal?

USC baseball

Swept by Oregon State and now in 10th place in the 11-team Pac-12 Conference standings. I remember some people telling me this was going to be baseball’s year.

Lindsay Gottleib

She currently has one recruit for USC’s Class of 2022. Meanwhile, five of the nation’s top six recruiting classes are Pac-12 rivals (Stanford, UCLA, Oregon, Oregon State, Arizona).

Lynn Swann

I know he is a member of Augusta National Golf Course but wearing that green jacket makes him look even more pompous than usual.

USC coaches’ clinic

I can’t say I’m too impressed with the turnout in that photo above. As you know, I like to point out 750 turned out for the 1959 clinic. And the USC coaches’ clinic used to get 300-400 coaches in the recent past.

  2. Baseball head coach Gill another of the local losers. Pitching coach is
    clueless using the bullpen. They are wonderful playing Wagner and
    Omaha. Followed this sport since mid – 1960’s.

    2. S,

      I was at the Friday and Sunday game. Same results, pitching was not good, bats were cold, and then on Sunday the second baseman makes back to back errors, the first was that he dropped the ball trying to field it and throwing to first at the same time and then with the next batter, the ball is hit to shortstop and the second baseman forgets to cover second for a double play. SC needs pitching and they need to coach the kids up.

  3. I might go to a baseball game if that cute Korean girl was pitching. But the normal 3-hour game would turn into 4-hours.

    There is talk of limiting major league baseball to 7 innings and cutting down the number of games from 162 to like 132. The under-30 crowd doesn’t have the patience to watch these long games, and without their support baseball will be in deep trouble

  4. Lincoln Riley is not going to rebuild the Trojans overnight, nobody does that, not even Nick Saban or Kirby Smart. So stop crying about not landing one offensive linemen, because if Riley can display that his teams will run the ball, and be physical in the upcoming season, I guarantee he’ll land 5 star linemen. USC will always maintain their tradition, but they have to get rid of that Clay Helton stench, because the program still smells of him 🤮

    1. Covers ALL the bases, Coach McKay. Coach Riley has to [and will] prove USC is back before we get everybody we want. The fact he’s landing so many great players after Helton destroyed recruiting and team morale indicates what a superstar he is…..

  6. That was the beginning of our alma mater song. Chorus unknown but recorded by Percy Faith and his orchestra circa1938. 78 rpm of course. It’s a beautiful moving song and tribute. You don’t hear it anymore.

  7. Here’s a secret about the blog. It’s set up to block certain words. But strange. For example it will accept the word fuck but it won’t accept the word t o o l. Try using that word without spacing it out like I did. Just type in as you normally would and you’ll see what I mean. No charge for this important info. Haha. Don’t ask me how I learned this big secret !!!!!!!

      Answer to the “Where is everybody?” question: All the USC sports sites are running low –it appears fans are waiting for Riley to either crush it or get crushed [not likely, btw] before they opine further…..

    3. George,
      You and I have something in common.

      Guarinoinski doles out the likes. With me it’s love/hate.

      The complete loser is the SC student body that has to interact with voldman. For good measure, Why couldn’t they include hunter and nuland in the invite? Does SC have to kick a little up to the big guy?
