I read another post that Bohn hinted that Clay’s contract’s buy out drops significantly if he is let go after December 1. This is I think the forth post I have read to that effect. Such a provision makes sense given that the to predecessors were let go early in the season. So, that means we sit and wait until after the Utah/CO game, which the UCLA win mandates anyway. Kevin Bruce in his comment on the SC/UCLA game on the late Gary P’s board stated the obvious – we won the game because Kedon developed, Drake London developed and… Read more »

I would have to assume any new HC would want his own people. They may decide to keep GH, but you can’t mandate it.

Utah — As much as I like Graham Harrell (and always have, even way before he was hired), I don’t want Mike Bohn or anyone else telling Urban Meyer or whomever the next USC coach is, anything about what they need to do, or how they should do it. The new USC coach needs to be fantastic, know how to follow his own lead and huge expectations, and have complete control and support. I presume GH will be gone to other opportunities, even though I really like the young guy. If Urban or whoever wants to keep him, all the… Read more »

Allen, I will go you one better. I want the Air Raid gone. Yes, it is fun to see the WR’s flying all over the field and Kedon playing pitch & catch. I would rather have a more balanced offense that can run the ball effectively. I want a running game that can gain 3 yards when a first down is needed. I want an offense that can run out the clock at the end of a game or can control the game to keep the other teams offense off the field. I may be mistaken, but I don’t believe… Read more »

Allen, I like Graham Harrell much better than any OC we have had in awhile. He has utilized the skilled assets we have and worked with 3 QB’s to get us where we are. We had a true freshman and a redshirt Junior who hardly played at all in his USC career. This was not perfect through the course of the season but we improved offensively and we scored more points than I thought we would this year. Kenon Slovis has excelled in this offense and will even be better in 2020 in this offensive scheme. He may throw for… Read more »

Hey Daniel. I agree that GH & the offense was a high scoring machine. But the team/program as a whole is floundering. If the new HC decides a new OC & offense is needed, then so be it. I said this earlier—if an amputation is required, it is done in one fell swoop. Not one finger at a time. IMO, the USC football team is in need of an amputation——the regime of the last 5 years needs to be excised. We tried CH’s way and it has been found to be woefully insufficient. It is time to pull the band… Read more »
