Nice 11 point win for USC basketball tonight against Stanford.

Happy New Year to everyone! I am just resurfacing after a week of skiing (and freezing!) in Colorado. I hope everyone enjoyed their Holidays! I see that we are in real danger of Kingsbury resigning and going to the NFL. Jets and Cardinals were the worry before but now New England is interested in KK as their new OC if Josh McDaniels leaves (which he may). And, of course, because the Patriots cannot talk to KK, they are doing what they always do and skirting the rules by indicating their interest through the media. If KK really has NFL ambitions… Read more »

Rock, Welcome back and glad you had a great time in CO and arrived back safe and sound! Personally, I think Swann made the right call on KK. If KK wants to work for the pros, then let him leave now. This will make any future dealings much clearer and easier to manage. And, it will prevent SC from being “played”. The message is clear – if KK stays and succeeds then either SC pays him a boat load more money or he bolts. I really do not like the program being held hostage by an OC. Really bad management!… Read more »

TRJJ — thanks and I hope your Holidays were nice! I agree with everything you said. To me, KK is showing a lack of concern for the program he just signed on for. He’s exhibiting the exact kind of selfishness and individualism that he is now tasked with weeding out of the program. That’s why he needs to either announce his true commitment and go all in, or get in the wind and stop whining about not being able to explore his options. He shouldn’t be exploring his options anyway. He should have not signed. You’re right. Mistake one —… Read more »

The way out is clear I think. Admit your mistake and learn. The first decision, now, is what type of O do you intend to run. If you intend to run the Air Raid (and I think given SC talent level, that is exactly the O you must run), your HC must be able to manage it AND you hire an OC who can run it. And, you then build your O staff around it and recruit to it. I doubt Helton can manage the Air Raid (or any other O for that matter – he failed miserably at the… Read more »

Pretty disappointing post-season, both college and pro. No memorable games except some of the lesser bowls. And next week will probably produce little entertainment as K.C., L.A. N.E. and N.O. all will probably prevail relatively easily. So then it will likely be L.A. vs N.O. and N.E. vs K.C. for the Super Bowl. Those games could be interesting.,,,,,No sooner is this written then Chicago-Philadelphia pull off the best ending of the playoff season

I thought that Philly/Chicago game was a fun watch — especially that last two minutes!

Anyone heard any more about the possible Jaelin Phillips transfer to USC?
