Isn’t it telling that the while the Lakers traded for Russell Westbrook and the Dodgers are close to acquiring Max Scherzer, USC is still putzing around with Clay Helton. USC cannot trade for a tailback. But it can hire a big-time coach who can make the Trojans the stars of Los Angeles. Instead, it’s full-speed ahead with Helton while the L.A. glamour teams add more … Continue reading If It’s Friday, It’s Time For A USC Notes Column
As expected, Evan Mobley goes to the Cavs at No. 3. That ties O.J. Mayo as the highest draft pick ever for a USC player. Did you see Andy Enfield was sitting at the Mobley table? Probably wondering how he is going to get players with Jason Hart. Or sore about not getting his contract extension.

Pac-12 commissioner George Kliavkoff got the “Coach Kliavkoff” treatment Wednesday at USC as he kicked off his listening tour of the conference. I always feel like Clay Helton rewrites history. Below, he is talking about how JuJu Smith-Shuster built his brand at USC. I remember a junior year where Smith-Shuster didn’t get as many opportunities as expected and some doubted his pro prospects, mainly because … Continue reading USC Morning Buzz: Time To Rewrite History
