USC quarterback Caleb Williams did not speak to reporters after the Oregon State game.
He then did not speak as scheduled Wednesday for his weekly appearance with the media.
It’s a bad look. If you make $8 million a year and can do TV commercials, you can handle speaking to the media after a bad game. He’ll do it in the NFL. You think Justin Herbert wanted to talk after the Chargers lost to the Jaguars, 38-10?
I’m not sure what Williams fears? He’s the star of the team and everyone thinks he will lead USC to great success this season. End of story.
This is a classic case of overthinking by coach/player. Remember, Williams never spoke to the media last season until Oklahoma’s victory in the Alamo Bowl.
Does Lincoln Riley really think the supportive USC media is going to ask Williams a question he couldn’t easily answer?
I’m sure he’ll be willing to talk about an easy victory over Arizona State. But that’s a weak policy. USC didnt lose a lot of games during the Pete Carroll era, but the players faced the media when they did.
