USC Notes: Trojans Offer Nebraska Lineman

Nebraska defensive lineman Casey Rogers entered the transfer portal yesterday. He just got offered by USC this afternoon.

Rogers was hampered by an injury last season and had 17 tackles, three tackles for loss and .5 sacks in seven games. In 2020, he had 25 tackles, three tackles for loss and one sack in eight games.

  • Today is the 71st birthday of former USC All-American John Vella. He was USC co-captain and lineman of the year in 1971.

Vella also played for the Raiders from 1972-79. Although he was known as an offensive lineman, he started out on the defensive line like in the picture above with Jim Plunkett.

  1. There’s going to be an influx of incoming transfers as spring practice concludes and spring semester winds down. Riley called it correctly when he said double-digit incoming transfers.

  3. Scott Wolf start interviewing the old-timers including Robinson, Dave Levy, Tollner et al (before they die). Nobody else is doing this and it would be very popular.

    1. Yes, I’m sure we all want to hear from ol’ Terrible Ted about how he could never beat Notre Dame, including a few epic choke jobs in that series. I’ll pass on hearing from Tollner, and although I’ll always like J. R., he’s full of crap much of the time with a lot of his back-slapping stories, as well. If Robinson would’ve remained coach after 1982, he would have gone into more decline (as far as his record and success at SC went) and his teams would’ve looked exactly as they did in 1993-1997. Some success (such as the 1996 Rose Bowl) but also a lot of mediocrity and losses to rivals. J. R. was no John McKay, but he was also no Clay Helton. He’s a likable guy who won a NC with a core team of McKay’s last recruits and coat-tail recruiting on the program McKay has built.

      Dave Levy’s comments would be a really interesting read.

      1. I will also always love Robinson for helping to end Tollner’s, Smith’s and his own foul 13-year drought against Notre Dame in 1996. I will always remember that epic game and seeing Holtz lose at the Coliseum in his last game as Notre Dame’s coach.

  4. So. A couple of months ago I posted. Lincoln will re t o o l the Trojan team. But. Didn’t space out that word. See. Lincoln is a car and cars get re….. haha. BUT. My post was blocked. I didn’t know why. Gee. They don’t like that hilarious play on words ?? But. Thru deductive reasoning I found out that I had used one word that caused my whole post to be blocked. Kinda like the story of the ol dogs life in a nutshell.

    1. Rumor has it, Wolf’s ex-wife used to refer to him as “a t o o l “. A good guess, the word triggers a place in time, which was dark and unpleasant. I’m sure, wolf and his shrink have been dealing with this issue

      1. Scottie downloaded a free program, written about 20 years ago. You get what you pay for. It might as well randomize regarding what is “moderated” (there is no moderation, just blocking that is called moderation), and what isn’t.

  7. It’s about time Riley brought in some old school purebred grinders in the trenches! Get rid of the Polynesian lazy trash l and the scumbag thugs that Helton let run wild committing crimes and getting mauled by properly coached lines

    We haven’t competed in the trenches in years. It’s time we bring in purebred all American white strength like this fine young man and purge the filth off of our lines and our campus in general. When will the delusional radical liberal leadership cut the crap with the affirmative action garbage and let some qualified candidates and legacies back in our beautiful campus? One day a great rain will wash away the filth off our streets …

  8. My Civics teacher was a lineman for Plunkett.

    He always cautioned us about getting into a fight in his classroom, as he was liable to jump in. “And we’d better hope he was fighting on our side.”

    I did have to lay a whooping on 3 of his players during my high school years when they overstepped their bounds. (Of course he was also one of our coaches.) But never in his classroom!!

    He was a good guy and every bit as smart as you’d expect from a Stanford grad.
