Is Korey Foreman ever going to live up to his five-star hype?
As I noted after the Oregon State game, he didn’t play a single snap despite the fact Romello Height (shoulder) is out for the season.
Why didn’t he play?
“Practice,” USC defensive coordinator Alex Grinch said.
“The conversation’s not about Korey. The conversation is about every guy in our program being evaluated from an effort and execution standpoint. If you play at a high level and compete at a high level and you do so with extreme effort, we will not only play you but we will start you and champion you . . . Some guys are doing it, and some guys aren’t doing it at the level that we anticipate and expect them to.”
It’s good to see the coaches are not going to coddle Foreman.
All of this would be less of an issue except so many treated Foreman’s commitment to USC like it would transform the program.
No one more than USC itself. It let him be the first player to wear No. 0. And remember this billboard outside the Galen Center?
