USC Trojans This & That — 7/13

It would seem like the Clay Helton decision to go full-on Air Raid with Graham Harrell is extremely well-suited for the self-destructive Trojans  —  and not just because USC has the superior athletes to highlight the advantages of that offense.

Helton keeps Pendergast as the DC which in my memory has never shut down anyone good or bad. Even with a new strength coach, you still feel Clay Helton continues to hold USC football back from where it could be from his soft practices to his controlling assistant coaches who want to get into the player’s faces, to getting outmanaged in games.

Construction always amazes me. Buildings can look as if they will take months to complete, and then all of a sudden they look ready to move into. The coliseum looks great. Maybe L.A. can get another 100 years or so out of the Old Lady.
