USC Sunday Buzz: Rules To Follow

Jerry Weinstein, a coach in the Colorado Rockies’ organization, tweeted out a set of rules that former USC baseball coach Mike Gillespie used to give his players.

My favorite is where Gillespie says, “There is a reason it is called a uniform. It means `alike’ “

Imagine if USC football players had to follow that rule the past 10 years?

  1. Carol Folt: “Uniformity” is for those pathetic SEC teams — we believe in Imagination and Individual Righteousness.”

  2. They might look like a big list, but they’re expected and at that time your scholarship was your salary.
    There weren’t any hugs or playing like warriors. I imagine McKay had similar rules.
    No favors are given by slacking on discipline.

    1. Correct. Anybody who tells you life is better when you do as you please and forget the rules is a false friend…

      1. Calling it that is the “tell” as to how much contempt this administration has for the American people. It’s beyond insulting.
        First thing the new Congress should do is pass the “Ending all the grift programs initiated by our Corrupt President” Bill. All dollars not already spent by January 20th 2023 should be halted.

  5. Damn straight! U-N-I-F-O-R-M

    Stephen Carr used to suit up looking like a 1970’s Oklahoma RB…exposing his bare abs by tucking the lower half of his jersey under the chest plates of his shoulder pads. Helton ok’d that. Too bad he didn’t play like a lm OU running back.

    So many other abuses during the Helton menagerie.

    The football performances over the last few seasons exemplified the results of that lack of discipline. If you do the little things right, it sets you up to do the big thing right.

    Despite all the NIL money and shifting priorities, NO ONE on this team or any prior Trojan football team is bigger than the program’s history and tradition.

    Respect the uniform!
