One thing I’ve noticed at USC games is defensive coordinator Alex Grinch stays pretty calm on the sideline.
When USC made its goal-line stand at the end of the Fresno State game, Lincoln Riley and other coaches jumped around and celebrated. Grinch stayed pretty calm even though you might expect him to be the happiest.
When USC marched down the field for an early TD drive, Grinch walked to the other end of the field and stood by himself. Maybe he was gathering his thoughts before the next defensive series.
There’s no right or wrong way to act. Well, you can get too excited as we saw at times with Steve Sarkisian and Clancy Pendergast could be a real dud on the sideline. But it is interesting to learn how these new coaches respond during games.
- Cooper Lovelace, the JC transfer offensive lineman who went viral this summer because he can do the splits, did not play against Fresno State.
- This Athlon college football cover didn’t age well.
