Is USC going to have a recruiting dinner in two weeks? It doesn’t seem like it. You mean having the worst recruiting class in the Pac-12 won’t sell tickets? Last year, when people thought the recruting class was bad, less than 100 people showed up and Lynn Swann didn’t even attend. It was the worst-attended recruiting dinner since the event started in 1997. Imagine 15 … Continue reading Where's That Recruiting Dinner?

However, this seems a little different because no one was won over by the football team’s performance or the Coliseum makeover, … Continue reading Coliseum Seat Locations Still Rile Some Fans
It is important to note when you read that USC returns 17 starters next season whether a significant number of players will improve? At a normal program, most players get better. But this is USC. Who was really better this season? Did Palaie Gaoteote play better? Did the defensive linemen who returned make a significant improvement? Did the offensive linemen? I didn’t see it. With … Continue reading USC Afternoon Notes: A Lot Of Starters Back Might Be Good Thing
