The fact Jordan Addison is skipping the Cotton Bowl is pretty standard these days with marquee players and not surprising.
But . . . the one thing that doesn’t sit right is USC brought the No. 3 out of retirement just for him and he can’t play his final game. That doesn’t exactly live up to any ideals of being a Trojan or honoring the legacy of Carson Palmer.
It just reinforces what a dumb idea it was to give Addison No. 3 in the first place.
