Morning Buzz: It’s Travel Day For USC

USC leaves for the Cotton Bowl today.

USC has 7 fewer players in its travel party because of those who entered the transfer portal. That is far less than Pac-12 schools like Arizona (20); Arizona State (19); Stanford (18) and Oregon (17). One reason the number is smaller is how drastically Lincoln Riley overhauled the roster 12 months ago.

  • Anyone flying to Dallas on Southwest Airlines might be in trouble.
  • The high in Dallas today will be 51 degrees but the rest of the week of the temperature is forecast in the high 60’s or low 70’s. That’s better weather than in USC’s previous trips to the Cotton Bowl where it was much cooler.
  • Western Michigan defensive lineman Braden Fiske committed to Florida State. He had been a USC target. Previously, Tulsa offensive lineman Dillon Wade (another USC target) committed to Auburn.

  1. Ouch! LR double whiffs on portal xfer recruits.

    I guess no portal xfers find the bozos Cotton Picker/Picking Bowl game worth a cotton picking damn.

      1. MG, that “…game of our lives,” should have occurred in Vegas. But let’s not sugarcoat it huh, the Ripple and Puke choked like a cat with a major hairball in its throat. Then C. Williams, the H/T whiner, I mean winner, cries like baby.

        MG, Utah stepped on SUCC’s just polished white bucks as it were.

        I sill think 95% of the bozo team has zero idea where Tulane is located.

        I still think 95% of the ruin fan base has zero idea that Abbott paid money to see that the seats at the Taco Bowl of El Paso have spectators sitting in them. He was quite aware of the fact, ruin fans failed to show up at the RB.

    2. Lincoln Riley couldn’t recruit a thirsty top lineman, to an ice cold glass of water 😂. After Caleb Williams takes off to the NFL, Riley will look like a fraud. His weak recruiting will catch up to him upon arrival of the Big Ten.

  2. Anyone flying on Southwest to anywhere could be in trouble. Today alone they have cancelled 63% of their flights (2560 flights). They don’t fly into DFW, they go into Dallas Love field. I seriously doubt the USC team is flying Southwest.

  5. Bruin fan coming into Trojan blog to criticize or troll USC. . .but UCLA is over $100 million into debt even after Under Armour dropped the lawsuit against the school?

    Weak Sauce. It takes more than winning to get linemen into a program. We should be concerned about the me first selfishness that is dominating the landscape.

      1. Hey, the school may be forced to go into bankruptcy if they can’t get the Big 10 money and an extension from creditors to pay in 2024. What happens if Kliviakof decides to have the conference withhold the UCLA share as a deposit for Cal Berkeley? SC don’t have that problem. You should ask AD Jarmond to call AD Bohn for help with that kind of trouble. Typical public school mismanagement I guess.

  6. Attended the LA Bowl I last year watched OR St. vs UT St. …. UT St. gave up an opening td and that was it -all UT St. rest of the game. Sadly they got hosed today by Memphis St..

    The LA Bowl had a good start time last year 5:30 pm and this year 12:30 pm….not the same feeling – better a night game than a day one.

    Oh well take care Gabbs

      1. Even without Addison and the 2 O-Linemen and even if Caleb couldn’t play, SC should still win the game. USC has 3 5 stars and 38 4 stars on their roster. Tulane has 0 5 stars and 3 4 stars on their roster. There is no comparison when it comes to talent.
