USC Morning Buzz: It’s Not As Crowded At Defensive End (For Now)

USC training camp is not even a week old so it’s too early to form conclusions.

But is it any surprise highly touted defensive end Korey Foreman missed the past two practices?

Lincoln Riley said Foreman had a previous commitment on Monday night. Foreman also missed Tuesday morning’s practice.

Today’s practice is closed to the media. If Foreman returns, it won’t matter much that he missed a couple practices.

But USC has Romello Height (from Auburn) and Solomon Byrd (from Wyoming) at the same position so there is a lot of competition. Height has been impressive since last spring and is liked by the coaches. He should be considered the starter.

Foreman has been hyped by the media this offseason so there are expectations for him based on that and his five-star ranking in high school. He was injured for parts of last season.

  • Andy Jenkins, a long-time assistant at Oregon State, has been hired as the final assistant by USC baseball coach Andy Stankiewicz. Jenkins has also coached at Cal State Fullerton and Washington.

  1. “Lincoln Riley said Foreman had a previous commitment on Monday night. Foreman also missed Tuesday morning’s practice.”

    Can’t help but be reminded of Gillespie’s rules that Scott posted the other day. Rule #1 was “don’t ask for special favors”, i.e. to miss practice for this, that or the other.

    Death of a parent or sibling. That’s understandable. But anything else? Hmmmm.

  2. Scooter,

    Oregon St recently has had a great program. It sounds like Coach Andy has the funding to get things done the right way. I think Foreman has lost his starting position. He will come off the bench and will have to produce to earn any starting time. My opinion.

  3. Gabby,

    BTW, the unbias lowlife scum judge that approved the warrant to search Trump’s residence, Judge Rienhart, is nothing but an Obuma lover. He donated money to Obuma and wrote disparaging remarks about President Trump. NO bias, hate, or revenge for Trump from him, is there? Just face it, biden put the hit on Trump , along with Hillary and the sauced whench, Pelosi.

    1. Reality check: If Merrick Garland’s Department of Justice was working hand-in-hand with Democrats in a partisan, politicized pursuit of a Democratic agenda, as people like yourself would like to believe, the DOJ would not have sought a search warrant at this stage of the midterm campaigns……

        I have to work to support a lot of bums, socialist justice warriors, illegal aliens, planned parent hood, pelosi’s drug habit by drinking, biden’s giving away money to the chinks by giving oil, for high gas prices because of biden, inflation because of biden’s failure at running a country let alone his own household, and so I don’t have time to comment all the time. You might want to trying working, that way you can get off the dole and earn a living and once maybe become a man.

    3. PT, you unmitigated Ratpublican swine. Attorney General Garland has filed a motion today to unseal the warrant and property receipt from the FBI’s search of Donald Trump’s Florida estate.

      Garland is calling Gump’s bluff. It’s even money Gump won’t agree to the Garland’s motion? In Gump’s case, truth really hurts.

  7. “We’ve taken several steps since spring,” Riley said after the first day of camp. “I think the biggest thing I notice right now is a lot of our bodies are starting to change in a way they need to change. You see a little more pop, a little more speed, a little more physicality.”

    1. Is that worse than showering with your pre-pubescent daughter the way Dementia Joe did?

      A lot of young men say they’d like to marry a woman like their mom, or women their dad. I believe that’s more a comment of finding their parents as wonderful people who do everything they can to make their partner happy. But if you choose to look at it in the sickest manner possible, no worries. To each his own.

      1. Showering with kids put Jerry Sandusky in prison for the rest of his life and shamed Penn St. The results Joe Perterno should of known and got fired in disgrace. Joe Biden the president of the United States or puppet which ever way you want to look at it; gets outed by his own daughter for taking showers with her in her own memoir or diary. The lefty lunatics want to look the other way now. Like they’ve been doing for years with Joe Biden sniffing and cornering women. Make it make sense! Sounds fucin hypocritical to me. Fight on DT.

        speaking of “hypocritical”-

        Donald Trump, the president of the United States from 2017 to 2021, has been accused of rape, sexual assault, and sexual harassment, including non-consensual kissing or groping, by at least 25 women since the 1970s. The accusations have resulted in three instances of litigation: his then-wife Ivana made a rape claim during their 1989 divorce litigation. Businesswoman Jill Harth sued Trump in 1997 alleging breach of contract while also suing for sexual harassment but agreed to forfeit her sexual harassment claim as part of a settlement she received relating to the former suit; and, in 2017, former The Apprentice contestant Summer Zervos filed a defamation lawsuit after Trump accused her of lying about her sexual misconduct allegations against him

      2. Boogs, what’s hilarious about the fools who call it a Big Lie is that they continue to deny the cover-up by the media of Joe’s physical & mental decline AND the peddling of the family’s name by Hunter. People who are now acting surprised by all of these things were conned by the mainstream media. That, in & of itself, was election manipulation/fraud all on its own, even if you ignore the ballots!! Our media is no better than China & Russia’s in terms of the propaganda they will spew in order to achieve their goals.

        Humpty Dumpty on CNN is now doing a 180 and admitting the Hunter story was real only in an effort to save his job.

Most Democrats only care when the problems end up right on their laps. For example when Governor Abbott from Texas ended up sending border crossers to Delaware, New York and D.C. Then the mayor’s over there want to call a state of an emergency all of a sudden. Which was denied by the Dept of justice and FEMA.

    Anyway I only had to look back twice to remember the subject of the original post. Korey Foreman reminds me of Corey Feldman some might say, “who?” That’s what people will be asking in a few years when Foreman is mentioned.

  12. When I played football at SC (1966-1969), I never, ever missed a practice! If I did, Coach Marv Goux would get on your ass and ride you until you got sick. I saw that happen many times with that coaching staff with other players. They were NOT very understanding with your personal situations. Injuries were somewhat excusable, but not by much!
