USC Morning Buzz: Frontline Receivers Seem Obvious

USC outside wide receivers coach Dennis Simmons talked Tuesday about how he would use this receiving corps right now?

 “If we play tomorrow, how would I split the rep distribution up right now?” Simmons said. “I don’t know that it would be half and half. I’ve got a handful of guys that have earned the right to be able to go out on the field on Saturday.” 

What does that mean?

Jordan Addison obviously is No. 1. Then you have guys like Mario Williams, Brenden Rice and Terrell Bynum. All transfers by the way.

I’m not including Gary Bryant and Tahj Washington because they can play inside too.

Then you have another group like Michael Jackson, who everyone says has potential but didn’t practice Tuesday. Kyle Ford has battled injuries and he didn’t practice either. And you have the Mater Dei guys too: C.J. Williams and Kyron Hudson. Notice all the guys in this group were not transfers. That’s almost a negative in this program.

It’s going to be hard for some of these guys to get on the field.

All the people that actually worked and paid off their college debt that they willingly incurred are not at all happy. But a degree in woke studies is pretty worthless anyway so why pay for it, let the taxpayers foot your bill. What else is new in the woke world.

      9. toooo funnny!!!!…. trump offered everyone and their dead grandmother $1200 of free taxpayers coin…. Here’s the best part, he held up the delivery of the money because the checks didn’t bear his signature. Trump was sending out money still wet off the press…. and we get crickets from the right. It’s only a money grab when it bears Biden’s signature….right?

  1. So Andrew Vorhees is preseason all American. He was 3 star out of high school. Offered by Pac 12 schools and 1 SEC school, Vanderbilt.

    Not a 4 star or 5 star but just a hard working kid.

    1. Austin Jackson is struggling at the next level, and is injury prone, he’s going into his 3rd year. Alijah Vera Tucker is struggling and has had the most penalties out of all the offensive linemen for the Jets. Chuma Edoga is another disappointment at the next level, and is used as a backup. Andrew Vorhees is decorated because he handles weak PAC 12 defensive linemen, so his true test will be at the next level.

  2. Now, how do you figure SC has the fifth best chance of making it to the final game, the championship game?

    Well, the thinking must be that the Trojans are in the easiest conference, with only Utah and sucla standing in their way to an expected match-up with Oregon.

    But then if they qualify for the “Final-4” they might have to beat Alabama in order to get to the championship game.

    Sounds like a tall order, perhaps too tall for a team coming off a 4-8 year, and whose make-up has been turned upside down.

  5. So Cal, Michael, and Gabby,

    Biden has destroyed the country by raising taxes through the roof and now student loan give away. I saw a man approach Pochantis, aka that no good bummette from Massachusetts and he asked her if he would get a refund for paying off student debt. It’s response was no, you will not get a refund. He then said he worked two jobs to save for college tution while others were spending the money on trips and other wasteful things. he said he was responsible by paying off the debt and now you are rewarding people who do not care and will take out handouts. This pissed me off. I saved and saved and saved to pay an $80K debt of this year for my son’s college tuition and other people who are fuck ups are rewarded for being fuck ups. May biden and the rest of the no good suns of bit#ches be arrested for treason, not protecting the constitution by allowing ILLEGAL ALIENS in the country, and for being fu#k ups.

      Nowhere in the first 10 amendments to the Constitution is the word “citizen.” Often it is written “The right of the people…” The Bill of Rights protects everyone, including undocumented immigrants, to exercise free speech, religion, and assembly, and to be free from unlawful government interference.

      The United States Constitution does not define a federal power over immigration, yet courts have deemed it a “plenary power” of a sovereign nation. United States immigration law has developed extensively, often free of judicial review.

      WOW!!!!. One would have to conclude, I just gave you a major ass whipping….ENJOY!

      4. Gabby,

        A big FU#K YOU TO YOU and your fu#king socialist asshole points of view and the horse your rode on. You have no idea what i do or what i stand for. I have been working since i was 13 years old and my father taught me to be responsible for myself. Most of my life I have worked two to three jobs concurrently. Nothing was given to me. I went to Cal Poly Pomona so I could afford college. I came out with no debt. I have not received any free handouts from the govt., nor do I expect one. I was taught everyone needs to be responsible for themselves except for the elderly or sick. In the bible, you socialist, it teaches that if you don’t work, you don’t eat. I take that to heart. I take it to heart that this is a land of opportunity. You earn what you can, legally. I am sick and tired of seeing 50% of my pay go to the Fed’s and State. Fu#ck them as well. So that means 50% goes to bums that don’t want to work. I have a nephew and friends that live off the tit of the Fed and State Govt and they are capable of working. They have been doing this for 10 years. So a BIG FUCK you to you. I pay more in Fed and State tax than some people get paid for in a year. When will your SUN OF A BIT#H asshole biden stop asking us to pay more taxes and let the people who work keep the money that they earned? BTW, I loaned my friend a whole bunch of money 13 years ago and he has yet to pay back a dime, because he too and his wife are socialists and they feel that they are entitled. You just opened up a can of whup ass and I will deliver.

    2. Remember when Bill Clinton said something like “if you work hard and play by the rules, the US would provide you with an opportunity at a life more prosperous than your parents.” He then worked with a republican Congress to pass the Welfare Reform Act and to enhance mandatory minimum sentences for drug dealers. He also signed the Defense of Marriage Act.

      How times have changed. This democratic party is not the party of Bill Clinton. It has become the party that rewards or tolerates illegal immigration, generational welfare, drug addiction, homelessness, street crime and loan defaults. It does nothing for those who “work hard and play by the rules.”

      1. Horse, good point. They enslave those taking the welfare to always be on welfare and dependent upon the party to make sure they get their freebies, and in return the dependent class votes democrat so they can get more stuff. It never ends.


      2. Veg….. you guys had the senate, house, and presidency and turned an eye to welfare reform. That’s a GOP problem. take ownership!


      3. “generational welfare, drug addiction, homelessness, street crime”

        And what did trump do regarding your grievances…..Details or you’re a major hypocrite….

        Matter of fact, the DOJ has reported that “street crime went up after Obama left office



      4. Hey Goober: Much like PT, I have been working since I had a paper route at age 9. I attended state college and worked 30 hours a week and graduated with honors with no debt. After working for a few years, I attended law school, obtained an academic scholarship, and graduated with a $15,000 loan from my father. I paid it off the next year once I started working again. I later paid for a portion of my niece’s college education. This is what families do for each other. Never asked for the government to pay my freight and never failed to pay a debt. So hypothetically, what would I advise someone to do under the Biden default plan, I suppose if I was advising someone with poor character, I would inform them that they have the legal right to default or break their promise to repay the loan. (How is encouraging default good public policy?) If it were my son or another loved one, I would tell them not to go to a non Christian University and have nothing to do with the government other than possibly the military.

        As for your other questions, the Obama administration repealed those provisions of the Welfare reform act that required people to work or attend vocational training to get a check. Rampant crime, drug addiction, and homelessness are largely state and local problems that were created by state and local policies in dem run cities and states. For example, Gascon will not enforce property laws, or trespass laws or laws against public intoxication or urination and the state legislature favors no cash bail and free needles to drug addicts. Trump offered the national guard to shut down the riots but dem mayors refused and multiple dem politicians including Harris encouraged the riots and took a knee to BLM. They embraced the defund the police movement.

        What is Biden doing to address these grievances created by Soros backed DAs and dem mayors.


      5. You sound like a man of honor and great moral character…..the trophy is in the mail…

        Wow!!!!….. calling out DEM states for high homeless rates is pathetic. when two of the top four states are Red states……Texas and Florida…..Do you bother to research any of the crap you post?


      6. Wrong. My student loans were paid off some time ago. But my wife still had one in 2020. We paid it off way ahead of time, by the end of that year.

        With both principal and interest being paused at least through the end of this year, we still could have been sitting on that balance. We honor our debts.

        So you can take your hypotheticals and shove ’em up your ass. You’re always making ASSumptions about people. Not everyone milks the system for everything they can.


  6. Hey coaches, the WR’s have to block. That’s why so many don’t get on the field. Whether a guy makes it in the NFL or not it’s based on talent, not school. You can make the same argument about Alabama and Georgia linemen. Depending on the depth and injuries on defense will determine USC success.


  7. Bruce Feldman:
    As expected, former USC quarterback Kedon Slovis has won Pitt’s QB job. He will face his former OC (Graham Harrell) and teammate JT Daniels in the opener in what should be a very entertaining Backyard Brawl.


      1. and Harrell. The capper would be to Zoom in CCH live into the broadcast for his insights and analysis.


  8. It’s funny that Democrats all talk about civil war and insurrection.

    Yet, Biden continues to govern unilaterally pandering to youth and the downtrodden. Executive orders are b.s.Loan forgiveness sounds unconstitutional as it involves $ which must be appropriated by congressional approval.

    He also has a foreign policy that is jumbled and panders to China, etc. Also, asking Venezuela and Iran to pump more oil alone makes him unfit for office.

    We need a legitimate 3rd party to bleed Democrat votes in next election to defeat them.

    Hopefully Elon and Bezos will fund Liz Chaney much to the chagrin of Gabby and company.

      “Panders to china”, details? Speaking of pandering to china- Trump blamed china for the so-called “Ku Flu” but the weak coward pussy did nothing about it regarding china’s culpability… you sound limited.

      3. Goober: It is true that Trump had a lot of executive orders but Biden surpassed him in his first year in office. Biden’s first order was to nix the Keystone pipeline thereby eliminating hundreds of thousands of high paying jobs and making us more dependent on foreign oil. Under Trump, we were oil independent and actually a net exporter of oil. Prices were cheap. Biden’s biggest accomplishment was to open up the federal oil reserves and entered into the Paris Climate Accords which “put America last.”

        Further, most of Trump’s EO involved identifying and eliminating costly and ineffective government regulations. This act along with tax changes was instrumental is sparking the biggest economic boom in decades. 20% 401K returns, full employment, minority home ownership at an all time high, 350,000 new manufacturing jobs, ect. And, he did slap tariffs on China. Something Obama/Biden refused to do.

        The same fossil fuel interests pushing the Keystone pipeline have been cutting, not creating, jobs: Despite generating $546 billion in profits between 2015 and 2020, ExxonMobil, Chevron, Shell, and BP reduced their U.S. workforce by 11,200 employees over that period.

        In 2019 alone, the top five oil companies slashed their global workforce by 4,400 employees, the same year executives paid themselves nearly $220 million. But at least those working in the industry as a whole get paid high wages, right? Turns out that 40 percent of U.S oil-industry jobs consist of minimum-wage jobs.

        Instead of bankrolling an industry that is laying off workers and threatening our economic future, isn’t it time to take the billions in subsidies going to oil companies and invest instead in a sector that both creates jobs and protects the planet?

        I’m sure you have no fucking idea what sand tar oil is, and how toxic it is to the environment. There’s a reason why Canada will not refine it….google and educate yourself. Our country has little to no need for this dirty oil. The major of it is sold to Texas exporters and leaves the country. You sound confused on how his process works

        As for your suggestion that the U.S. was exporting oil because trump was president, that’s false. The country has been supplying international markets with various forms of energy for decades. The former president presumably meant to refer to net energy exports during his administration.

        A few other things, trump lost 11 million jobs while in office. Only president in history to leave office with fewer jobs. How blind can you be.

        As far as the “biggest economic boom in decades”-stop the fucking lying! Obama had 84 consecutive months of positive GPB, and averaged over 4% a quarter. trump never broke 3% in any given quarter…..pathetic…..hey!!!! you voted for him.

        Dude, I’m sure you’re aware, Tarriffs in reality, are actually a tax on the consumer. Something Obama/Biden knew would be a mistake . China played trump like a fiddle, and the world mock and laughed at him. What happened to all the soy beans trump said china was going to buy?..crickets!……china gave trump the middle finger. He coward down and did nothing about it. while Xi Jinping continued to butt-fuck him.

When people mention biden’s name to Bugs Bunny, all Bugs would say is, “What a Maroon”!!!!


      1. It depends on how you define failure. If failure is the inability to do something to support America and Americans, yes Joe is a failure. If failure is define by the inability to support his family, then no. A recently published book estimates that the Biden family has received in excess of 30 million in graft based on Joe’s political influence.

      2. slow your roll, Einstein!….. Here’s one part that Biden did for you, and millions of others, on his new bill just signed into law. And if it doesn’t benefit you. I must assume you are dead.

        On health care, the bill enables the federal health secretary to negotiate the prices of some drugs for Medicare. It also caps out-of-pocket prescription drug costs for people on Medicare at $2,000.

        The bill also provides a three-year extension on health care subsidies in the Affordable Care Act that were originally passed in last year’s pandemic relief bill.

        Regarding the 30 million, that is another far-right fallacy(prove it) But it is widely known and based on real numbers, Jared and Ivanka have profited over 300 million in grafts due to the orange cheetos influence.

        Dude, quick bring a knife to a gunfight…..


      3. Gabby –I’ll grant ya points on this one. The repubs haven’t done shit on health care —- beyond toy bills that McCain was right to call “meaningless jokes.” The reason? The repub establishment doesn’t give a crap about your health. McConnell said as much during the Obama years. They better change their tune when they retake congress or they won’t be there long.
        There’s more to life than “investigations.”


      4. MG…. FYI….. Only four major pieces of Health Care legislation have been signed into law by a sitting President. All four came from a Democratic President.
