USC Trojans This & That — 6/12

Round-a-bout transfer cases CB Chris Steele (6-1, 187) and WR Bru McCoy (6-2, 205) give the Trojans big-time Calif prep recruiting bragging rights again.

It’s good to be USC.

Now the NCAA needs to decide when each can play on United Airlines Field at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The Coliseum — jointly owned by the state, the county and the city of Los Angeles — is managed and operated by USC under a long-term lease that extends through 2111.

I too, have great optimism toward Graham Harrell, and he may indeed save the upcoming season. But I can’t get out of my mind how clueless and incompetent Helton has looked the last two years, and I don’t buy he suddenly has learned from his mistakes.If he hadn’t figured it out by last year, it’s just not in his DNA to be the type of coach we need. My hope is that he does as little as possible, and stays out of the way. Pretty sad that this appears to be the best case scenario, but I truly believe the… Read more »

I have been out of the country for two weeks, and just want to make sure, McCoy and Steele are now Trojans for sure?

I had to cut out and save the two pictures of the sucla women’s baseball team celebrating a winning playoff home run by one of its most popular players, and then the free-for-all upon winning the national title. Best sports joy pictures I have ever seen, and is further evidence that most women feel more deeply than men, even in victory.

Clay Helton continues to live a charmed life with these happenings (like players returns) that ease the effects of his questionable managing of this football program. Now you can’t help but wonder if he will again escape the hot seat and not necessarily by anything he did himself.

How USC does once the season starts and finishes will determine his fate. Another 5-7 record will result him being fired.

I hope he is able to lead us to a great season and want to see him do well because he is a nice guy.

Who would’ve thought after the January and February usc had that it could look this positive. Players are actually getting worked out and pushed for S&C and the team seems to be coming together. They bring back two players who left one of which has a good case for immediate eligibility to help right away. Clay may have done something in the right direction for the program and his career, but can it translate to a good season or what we predicted before the Spring? I’m hoping this year will be a dominate one after all the hype they have… Read more »

So it is absolutely official that these young men are indeed going to be part of the team? If the answer is yes, I’m thrilled! Whoda thunk it woulda happen?

But, we are still available for an NCAA screw-job and until that possibility passes in regards to Bru and Chris, we’re still not out of the woods.

I’m afraid that you are probably right. Even as the season moves closer into view the NCAA is most likely looking into communications between the coaches and players involved. Using powers reserved for law enforcement at the highest level they will obtain phone records from a burner phone in Texas to a pay phone in Exposition park. They will then extrapolate a supposed conversation between Bru and Clay in which Bru is promised the same treatment as Reggie Simpson. Or OJ Bush. (Names mixup on purpose because the NCAA doesn’t pay attention to detail) Then the infamous communication between @happyclay1… Read more »
