Morning Buzz: USC Will Mix It Up At Practices

Some coaches, like Chip Kelly, like to practice in the morning. Others like Pete Carroll at USC practiced in the afternoon.

Lincoln Riley does both.

Here is what he plans for the season:

Tuesdays: 8:10 a.m.

Wednesdays: 4 p.m.

Thursdays: 8:50 a.m.

What is unusual about this is the challenge it probably posed for the academic counselors. Players can’t have morning classes on Tuesday/Thursday or afternoon classes on Wednesdays.

When Lane Kiffin coached at USC, morning practices were abandoned because of the poorer academic performance by the football players and also because it limited options for class schedules.

  • USC did something unusual Sunday night. It tweeted out a statement on Bru McCoy.

It wasn’t so much what was said but the fact USC felt the need to say anything on social media.

This is what happens when you rile up an SEC fan base. Tennessee fans have been all over Mike Bohn, Carol Folt and even Lincoln Riley about McCoy’s eligibility.

      1. GT, don’t feel bad about being second on the blog today. My guess is that Charles was released early from the drunk tank due to weekend over crowding.

      1. hey John, when I was in skool I never paid attention to akademicks, which is why me don’t know hw to spell. the missus just informed me that you use a C instead of a K when spelling cat. I pay more attention now so I don’t sound like dumb fuck .

      2. Hey Faux Ed, you reminded me of a Monty Python skit where the person cannot pronounce words starting with “C” so he substitutes the letter “B” when he pronounces those words, until someone explain that he Kan substitute the letter “K” at the beginning of words that start with “C”.
        Anyway at the end of the skit he mentioned you- “Silly Bunt”

    1. Exactly, real Ed– now that SC with its NIL-thing has gone pro, its players don’t need no stinkin’ education.

      It was a charade all along anyways, our boys’ sight is strictly on the NFL

      1. With the kind of money these kids are making, it’s hard to believe that they would care much about academics. Just take Basket Weaving 1 to stay eligible to play. Do you really think Caleb Williams cares if he doesn’t get his degree?

    2. To be honest the game should’ve been rescheduled with a tougher oppennent. We are only excited because it’s the first game of the season. We all know the outcome already. The question howany points will USC score.

      1. You sound like a realist as oppose to a delusional fanboy . A tougher opponent would tell the fans what we really have, instead of hype on a piece of paper.

    1. A shame so many voters opted for weakness over strength. None of that would be going on with Donald still in the White House.

      But they don’t care about that. The mean guy is gone. To them, the cost was irrelevant.

      Of course they’re in denial about that and lie to themselves, so they can sleep at night: “This would all be going on, even if Donald were still President.”

      Yeah, sure it would!

      1. So Cal —
        Let me let you in on a little secret, my friend —you ain’t seen nothing yet. The misdirection, double-speak, sophistry (well, lies) —-it’s all about to go Big Time. All the way up to November. This administration has stolen so much wealth they now HAVE to pull out the stops to protect themselves from American Justice. The assault on common sense and truth is gonna be absolutely brutal throughout September and October —so it’s no time for American voters to misplace their moral confidence. Get the job done in November —so we can move on.

      4. How can that be, Bourbon? Dementia Joe has all that experience in foreign policy!

        Gatestone Institute senior fellow and author Gordon Chang issued a dire warning about the threat of China: “President Joe Biden is not preparing Americans for what is coming.”

        A small percentage of us are doing what we can to prepare for that eventuality. The fools are pretending it’s not coming and will actually act as if there’s nothing anyone can do to prepare.

      5. slooo cal: “A shame so many voters opted for weakness over strength. None of that would be going on with Donald still in the White House,”

        You senile troll!!!! The twice impeached orange cheeto couldn’t even protect the citizens of his own country. His narcissism, incompetence, vanity, and just plain fucking stupidity led to unnecessary suffering, pain, and death. I lost two friends and a relative because of a disgusting king of yours.

        you voted for this man(fucking coward) who was responsible for the worst disaster in modern history, but magically it’s all Biden’s fault.

        Tell the blog, how many people were dying a day, unemployed, waiting in line at food banks, homeless due to job loss, not in school, or fear of being a victim of a violent crime- on the day trump left office?

        As usual, he forgives trump like nothing happened, and blames Biden for all the families trump destroyed. Spoken like a true cult member. And he continues the ask the question, “why would you vote for Biden”? Only someone with rocks between the ears couldn’t perceive the reason why trump lost by the biggest landslide in history.. It’s so obvious, slo cal has dents on his forehead from getting slapped with the reality of trump’s failures.

        Once again, trump’s historic legacy has and will continue to be judged on how he massively failed our country when facing extraordinary times. The world’s #1 grifter walked out to his podium day after day blaming the “radical left” for his incompetence. He should be indicted for negligent homicide

  1. Dennis Rodman said he’s going to Russia to help Brittney Griner. I have to ask; isn’t that like pouring gasoline on a lot fire? I read deeper and discovered the two are related. They have the same tattoo artist. Either way this may make the long wait for football go a lot quicker. (Especially for Owns, his boys play at 11:30- we have to wait until 3:00)

    Will the Piglet demand a trade? Just asking for a friend.

    1. Sam earned it! He’s not seeing the whole field and is slow to get the ball out. I watched Baker play recently, he looks sharp.

      Sam might be reduced to a permanent backup, just like Barkley. If a recall correctly, Barkley has yet to take a snap in a regular season since 2020.

  4. Gordon ignored the fact that China is in lockdown, the economy is in freefall and they are forced to create rain to save their farming. Also, what is Langya? The latest virus that has 35 people sick in China last weekend? Don’t get me started on Iran. The same country that lied to Russia, will sign a deal with Europe to sell oil and gas with no shame. Stick to football kids. Our last leader wouldn’t challenge Russia on the payments to murder our troops and stole top secret info to get help-from Russia-on getting re-elected. What a patriot.
